How can we improve Azure Signup and Billing?

Up the core limit on the Azure Free Trial to at least 10 and preferably 16.

You can't create a demo lab or fully evaluate a solution using Azure IaaS
with a limit of 4 cores on the Free subscription.

    I was using AKS cluster using rancher with free trial subscriptions. Trying more than 7 GB takes hours of time to create the cluster but no success. I have wasted my time checking here and there but no mention of free trial limit anywhere.

    I am in the same boat as others. My attempt to create an AlwaysOn AG cluster via automatic method failed at the last step due to the 4-core limit on the trial subscription. How can you expect us to purchase something we are not allowed to test first? Please advise.

    Another "me too" for this. People can not try out any real multi-server scenario with a 4 vCPU limit.

    one cannot create multi-component testing with just 4 cores. Please consider increasing the limit on the Free subscription. Considering that you have to submit a credit card and you are billed.

    The limitation of 4 vcores is not visible anywhere until the final stage of a 4+ vcore deployment - which fails. Better information about the trial limitations would be beneficial.
    My application requires testing of either M60 or K80 GPUs, and these are only available with minimum 6 vcores. I don't need 30 days or 200usd processing credits, I just need a few hours with NC6 to compare performance to my current hardware.
