Scale to Premium Storage from standard Storage
Please allow us to switch from Standard Storage to Premium Storage and the other way around. Or at least provide us with the option to scale up from Standard Storage to Premium Storage (one way).
The current process involves stopping the affected VM, copying the disk using AzCopy and recreating the VM in the new storage account.
I'm pretty sure Micorosft's team can take care of this process behind the scenes and just provide us with a user interface option and/or an API method.
Currently we have multiple VMs (about 20+) running on standard storage that need to be upgraded to Premium Storage in the following months. Having to manually upgrade them is a bit frustrating.
Azure Storage is actively working on features that could improve the migration story from standard to premium disks.

This would include supporting block blobs in Premium. Some applications supporting Azure storage requires block blobs.
