Startup times for VMs continues to be a focus in Azure. I am leaving this item in the “Started” state because we still have work to be done, but the current deployment time we are seeing for Windows Server on average is 2 minutes (1 minute for Linux). We’ll continue to invest resources in driving down this number.
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.

Good feedback. This is a great area of improvement for us.
We’re constantly making improvements to the deployment times for Windows Azure.
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,
-Adam (Azure Billing Team)
