  1. Allow smaller premium drive sizes for VM

    Currently the smallest premium disk size when creating a VM is 128 GB. We have many VM's that are used solely for computation intensive workload and large amounts of data are not stored to the operating system drive. A 64 GB option would be sufficient for the space we are using and help to reduce some of the premium storage costs.

  2. Increase the number of attached Disks per Core

    Please allow attaching more disks per core, or increase the max size of disk (1TB by default) without forcing upgrading the VM instance.
    For my project I use A1 Standard VM instance and CPU/memory is sufficient for my project, but it needs more storage (up to 10TB).
    I can't attach more disks without spending more on CPU/memory that my project doesn't require.
    I think, we should be charged for capacities/storage we really use and not for what we're forced to use!
    Please support it!
