This is a difficult one to handle technically. However the main theme is cost savings. Are there other cost-saving options (other than pausing) that could address this concern? For example, smaller vCore Managed Instances etc.? On the other hand, implementing pausable Managed Instance can also mean that resuming them will take several hours each time. Is this a concern? Thank you.

I'd like to feedback on this...
We are considering migrating from IaaS to PaaS but need to prove the concept before we make the leap. The ability to pause the billing is needed to reduce the costs during initial testing.
