    In Azure, Extra-Small (768 MB RAM) is the only configuration with shared virtual core.

    Due to SQLServer requires a minimum of 1 GB of RAM, "Extra Small" has no enought size for running IIS and SQL Server.

    The "shared virtual core" option is less expensive because you pay ONLY when your VM is consuming cycles of CPU (in other words, when App Server and DBMS are running; non waiting for requests).

    Today, developers and testers must stop and re-start their VMs, in order to reduce costs (for example, at the night).

    Could Azuire offer Small(A1) and Medium(A2) configurations with shared CPUs?

    Then developers and testers could pay only when they run their apps.
