How can we improve Microsoft Azure Analysis Services?

Scale up and down Azure AS server

Allow changing of pricing tier for an Azure AS server. For example, scale down from an S4 (100GB) to an S1 (25GB).

Need to be able to do this in an automated way using an ARM request, so can automate scale/down up to match peak usage user demands.

        Is this intended as a way to provide a background load balancing capability? Or is there a new functionality about model size and speed being correlated with peak usage? To my understanding of Tabular architecture, and not knowing the details of AAS, the benefit would be in increased QPUs, not the ability to load or reduce data volumes.
