How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

Provide a simple way to backup - and restore VMs without requireing downtime

At present, you can create a full snapshot of a Hyper-V VM, but not an azure VM, The current suggested mechanism (setup out at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn722422.aspx) means you take the VM down, create a disk snapshot,. This can work but means downtime, What I'd like to see is a simple New-AzureVMSnapShot cmdlet, along with a Restore-AzureVMFromSnapshot. And of course, have the functiond available in the Portal too!
