How can we improve Azure Media Services?

Automatic Scaling Up / Down of Reserved Encoding Units

Having to plan ahead and manually reserve Encoding Units prior to submitting jobs, then manually stopping them upon job completion loses one important aspect of cloud computing: auto-scalability.
It would be much more useful to set an upper limit on number of reserved concurrent encoding units and let WAMS manage according to size of job queue.
This would make WAMS Encoding elastic and on par with other cloud encoding services.

Hi SCrainic,
Auto-scaling of reserved units is on the roadmap for Windows Azure Media Services.
