This is killing our on-boarding of new customers where we are taking over PaYG accounts or EA accounts to load into our CSP subscriptions., If they are using managed disks (Azures flagship storage resource), we are forced to essentially rebuild all the VMs.
It also prevents partners such as ourselves from gaining the CSP Partner discounts which is costing us thousands of dollars a month.
I really hope MSFT gets this in the pipe, This may force partners to look at Google, or AWS clouds. where we can get partner discounts without the production workload hoop jumping.
