Make Azure deployment creation faster
Currently when I create a deployment it takes nine minutes before my OnStart() runs.
That's just too long. If I want to redeploy my service (by creating a staging deployment and then using Swap VIP) I can't do it faster than in nine minutes because of that.
It should be much faster - something like no more than two minutes.
We’re constantly making improvements to the deployment times for Windows Azure.
This would significantly simplify our elastic provisioning service in as much as it wouldn't need to be as pre-emptive (very difficult to do accurately and at lowest cost possible)
