    We will take a look at this ask as we improve the VM API for more granular controls on start/stop and autoscale.

    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.

    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.

    Given the sparse nature of Windows Azure Storage and with recent announcement for trim support on guest OS’s that support trim, the need for resizing should be reduced, as you should just assume you start with the largest size possible and only pay for what you use.

    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?

    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.
