Ability to create dedicated containers with 100 RU/s
I need to create 30 containers, but it becomes too expensive when I need to allocate 400 RU/s per container at minimum. If I use a shared database, then I cannot individually convert containers to dedicated containers in the future as my budget becomes better. I'd really like to see the ability to create 100 RU/s dedicated containers so that I don't have to deal with messy migration.
We’d like to encourage you to take a look at our new serverless option. This is a consumption offering so you only pay for what you use.

Please provide feedback if this will meet your needs.
Serverless looks to be not a good fit for production according to the article. Suggesting to use serverless while the customer wants a reliable service is disappointing.
I agree with this request. I don't like using shared databases because I cannot control how much throughput each container gets, but at the same time creating a single container with dedicated throughput is too expensive.
Why is this not on your roadmap? Why are customers being forced to pay for 400 RU/s even when they don't need to utilize this much? Please reconsider your approach.
What is the scenario that you need to create 30 containers? Are you using containers and tenant boundaries?
