How can we improve Microsoft Azure Analysis Services?

Scale out of Azure AS

Provide an easy way to set up scale out of Azure AS servers. Need to allow easy set up of load balancing and synchronization of data across servers. May need to copy data from a processing server to multiple front-end servers.

        Providing an auto-scaling setting in addition to being able to programmatically scale out to N nodes would be amazing. What if I could set a "auto-scale rule" to "pricing tier S1, min of one node, max of two nodes, scale up if there is sustained 95% CPU usage by multiple queries for over 3 minutes". Then I could be confident that I am not overpaying for capacity but that I could rapidly scale to meet demand within 4 minutes of that demand occurring.
