Support will be delivered for migration scenarios. In DR scenarios customer bandwidth requirement for delta replication and initial replication are similar. Hence not planned for DR scenarios
We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.
We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.
Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

I will quicky add services like SQL Database, or even Web Sites or Mobile Services.
Even if this means unprovisionning / reprovisionning behind (with longer duration), we should still have:
- all the configuration stored
- all the public adresses (like subdomains) still reserved (even if that will cost "a bit")
Thanks Glenn, we agree. We’ll be looking to do this in the next calendar year.

We have been considering all of the risks and investigating the steps required to ensure we implement this feature with high positive impact and low to no negative impact.
After this investigation we have decided we will enable Pay-As-You-Go customers the option to configure a spending limit on a Pay-As-You-Go subscription, with appropriate safeguards and measures to prevent both service abuse and production service failure.
We have not yet finished determining the details of what this feature will look like, nor do we have a timeline for release, but we have heard your voices and have added this feature to our backlog.
Thanks for your continued feedback,

Have MSDN subscription with monthly usage. Just had a test with Reporting service (one server instance created) and left it on after using it. I have now ~130EUR bill charge. It's completely insane not being able to cap usage if we want. These are not production accounts, so we should be able to master the charge there. Also, how it is possible not to to be able to set usage limit alerts?
