resize VM without reboot
Currently if you want to change the VM Size of Azure, VM is restarted. VM Resize shouldn't require downtime and it should be done in the backend. As CPU and RAM is still throttle when we use more resources then why can't we just remove the throttling limit and inform customer that VM is resized from A to D series when request is raised of resize?
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

Resize without reboot would help facilitate auto-resizing by script based on load triggers. It should be smooth and dynamic, without impact to our users.
A must have feature! +999! This will give azure an advantage over other cloud provider
A must have feature, unnecessary reboots should be avoided.

Or - even if we could resize the VM, then have the resize pending until the next reboot
