Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of blob storage lifecycle management. The feature set offers a rich, rule-based policy engine which you can use to transition your data to the best access tier and to expire data at the end of its lifecycle. See our post on the Azure Blog to get started: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-blob-storage-lifecycle-management-public-preview/preview/.
For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at DLMFeedback@microsoft.com.

One way that azure could do this would be to release a much higher value than the current $ 25 of bizspark's devessentials and $ 150, not to mention that the free mode is not being able to test the elastic pool.
How could he do that? Creating other limitations, such as:
Limiting the amount of IP's that can access the application, to serve as proof that is serving only test.
