How can we improve Azure CDN?

Ability to force the CDN to refresh any cached content

A new API to send a request to the CDN so that it invalidates an previously cached item and forces a refetch from the origin - e.g. Azure Storage.
This would happen regardless of the original Cache Control header set for the blob.

    Purge is now supported both via the CDN extension in the new Azure Portal (https://portal.azure.com) and via REST APIhttps://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt634451.aspx. This is currently only available for endpoints that are created using the new Azure Portal. Existing endpoints in the previous version of the portal (i.e. https://manage.windowsazure.com) will be migrated to the new Azure Portal in the beginning of 2016 and at that time purge support will also be available for use with them.
