Auto-scale up and down not just out, for web apps
Can you expand the auto-scaling feature to include up and down scaling as well as in / out?
so for example, scale the web app up a tier in peak and down a tier i off hours. Or something to that effect.
This is an interesting idea, though not feasible at the moment. We will leave this on the roadmap to review later on.
I am amazed this is not currently possible. We are tied to a piece of software that is licensed by server and not on processors. So we would really benefit from being up to scale up and down automatically.

An auto-scale with a scheduler would be fantastic for scale up/down. Our app is mostly idle at night, and doesn't need the extra memory and power eating money we could spend on other Azure services.
