What if…? Production has a Staging slot.

What if…? Production has a Staging slot.

Staging or QA environment needs to be the same or as close to production as it can be.

Preferably, you want to restore a recent backup 💾 from Production as Staging and then deploy your changes 🔄.

Kudos 👏 if you’ve fully automated this 🤖.

But the wasted storage 😞.

Would it not be nice if Microsoft allows us to have a staging slot to deploy your changes to in production environment? 🤔

It runs on the same data (or almost the same) 📊 and it doesn’t count for your capacity ⚖️.

And when your changes are approved ✅, you flip Staging into Production with a simple action 🔄.

Would you vote for this?
