This is a great topic but I would be more worried about features being available and not as much about space. There's always WASD Federation to can help you with scaling or moving to a VM install of SQL hosted in Azure, but Microsoft's knack for "Whoops, that thing you're using, yeah that's gone. Sorry!" or lack of certificate management that causes outages is annoying.

Hi Ola!

Well, I must admit that I liken it to developing against Standard Edition, or MySQL, or some other product - the feature set is a bit different and you need to bear that in mind. While that can be frustrating, I consider it something that is known up-front. I don't see much of "That thing is gone", and that even deprecated items don't disappear for a very long time, for fear that someone's code might break.
