Please remove the dependency on storage account per each devtest lab
1. One storage account is created for each devtest lab, may be provide option to use existing storage account while creating devtest lab.
2. Please provide a ability to choose an image from Managed Images in the subscription when creating vms in devtest labs. (rather requiring to have devtest lab image)
3. Remove the requirement to copy custom .vhds into each devtest lab storage account to use them for VM deployments.

It would make a lot of sense if DevTest lab machines could use standard managed image and disk resources.
This would remove the requirement for a storage account to be created every time when a DevTest lab resource is created.
I also like the suggestion that DevTest labs should be able to use an existing storage account. This would allow more than one lab to use the same storage account, which would reduce the requirement to copy custom disks back and forth. (currently the only way to create custom specialised images, which need to be created on a per-lab basis)
