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.

Are there any other alternatives to what has been suggested above? We require an MI for remote offices to interface/update a relatively small database, but the actual updates and usage occurs for only 30-40 hours of a week. Any suggestions or solutions to MI DBs on smaller side until they can be scaled to a greater point would be very helpful!Aaron Erickson supported this idea ·
