Ability to scale between different tiers
Right now, it doesn't seem to be possible to scale from Basic to Standard. Would be good if that was possible.
Today we support migration between General Purpose and Memory Optimised tiers. We don’t have an automated migration between either of those tiers and the Basic tier.
Please share in the comments whether you need a migration between Basic and GP/MO, and do add details on why.

Standard and Premium tiers are listed as "Coming soon" both during creation and after deployment.
Basic tier performance is really lackluster. We are trying to evaluate if we can use this service as a replacement for our current third party PostgreSQL provider, but right now performance is uncomparable (factor 15-20 times slower then our current PostgreSQL provider).
Any idea when Standard and Premium tiers will be available for preview?
