How can we improve Azure Search?

Backup/Snapshot of Index

It should be possible for us to snapshot our indices at an interval of our choosing. The location for the snapshot should be Blob Storage.

Why

A data load goes wrong. Currently you are stuffed if this happens. You have no way to rollback.

You want to take a production index + data and restore it into UAT/TEST/DEV. Currently there is no way to do this other than to load from source.

        This would be good if it serves regardless of tiers. I'd like to increase tier but there's no option to migrate with zero downtime.

        Add capability to take the snapshot of indices and restoration of indices to and from Azure Blob Storage or to any other format.

        This can also provide a mechanism for archiving indices that you are not using now, but you would like to be able to access in the future.
