Switch premium storage to standard storage when machines are off by schedule
We have lots of lab machines with multiple terabytes of storage. These machines run 12 hours a day. While they are off (deallocated) can we switch the disk to standard instead of premium?
These would significantly reduce our costs for the machines that are on schedule. Premium disk on an off machine does not provide much value.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/convert-disk-storage implies that we should be able to convert between disk types.
Thanks for submitting the idea! We have added this item on our backlog. For those who would like to see this feature earlier, please vote for it.
