    hi, this Image is good, but also expensive in Projects. we miss a SQL Version in Standard-Edition.
    if possible to scale the VMInstance to a vm-size with 2 DataDisk.
    databases can we store in a premium storage disk or into azure files via smb share. very fast and very cool in Performance and scale.
