Arun Sirpal points out a nice potential money-saving feature with Azure:

The recommendation is to setup a standard 50 EDTU pool. I am convinced that this pool is a new pricing tier. Even though the cost saving is small it is still clever that it suggests this. I assume the analysis done in the background really does understand my utilization patterns as we know that the patterns are absolutely crucial for when using elastic pools so it is something to definitely consider.

Within a click of a button the portal will create it for you.

It’s interesting that the feature can actually save you money rather than just telling you that you need to buy more expensive services.
