Automated Hot Add and Hot Removal of CPUs and Memory
Allow for the setting of thresholds for CPU and Memory utilization that would trigger the Hot Addtion (or Hot Removal) or vCPUs and vRAM from a virtual machine, for those Guest operating systems that support those functions.
Aligned with that, make sure that Windows supports these features in Azure.
Right now, we don’t plan to support hot addition of hardware to a running VM. You must increase the full size (versus incremental hardware increases).
I agree with the request. Assigning resources on the fly with Hot-Add is what virtualization is all about. Azure, don't make us treat your virtual servers like physical boxes. Isn't that the point in the first place i.e. Getting away from bloated hardware and closer to better utilization. It's not good to pay for $100 of hardware and use $50 of it. We should pay for resources used not assigned like storage.
