We added auto-stop in the platform and we are considering the addition of auto-start as well. Please continue to vote up this item if you would like to see auto-start included with our existing auto-stop feature.
You can also use Azure Automation. We use runbooks here to increase/decrease VMs on a schedule as well as take image backups on a schedule. Give it a look as they are looking to improve the scheduling functionality as well.
Apologies closed in error. Reopening
One thing to watch with this will be other services that depend on that name. Not sure if Azure could identify this but if you use Azure Automation for anything it's name specific and would break if the name changes.

Currently you can increase the size of a disk when the VM is in the stop-deallocated state. We are also working on a solution where a disk can be increased in size while attached to a running VM.
This is great if you are setting up a new server or have the ability to just rebuild a server(s) but what about exiting servers that need to be increased?
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature
This should be made available for ALL VMs not just virtual machines v2 which most are not using
Hi there, this is a lot of good feedback. Thanks for taking the time to send it over to us, we really appreciate that here at Microsoft.
1. Could you elaborate on the need for this?
2. This is possible today via NSGs you can specify the source IP.
3. Have you looked at ASGs?
4 (both of them) We are looking into making management easier and will take this feedback into consideration.

It would also be nice if we could apply lockdown groups by country (based on known IP ranges for each country). This would allow us to only expose Azure services to a known set of IP ranges.
For example, if clients only connect for the US then only those IP addresses should be allowed to connect to it. This would shrink the exposure.
