        Also should be allowed to run production workloads like GCP and AWS allows on their free credits.

        I burn through my credit way too fast and I can only work with one service at any given time in most scenarios. It really slows you down when you can't do anything for the rest of the month.

        Very much agree.
        The real power of Azure is in using multiple services together.
        Having 50 or even 150 / mo through MSDN is not enough to leverage multiple services in a real world scenario.

        This might be more of a cost issue too.

        I'd love this. I was testing a third-party db cluster only to see I burned through my credit in two days.

        If at least we will not be forced to pay for services we are not using ...

        Talking about MachineLearning, once you make a test, either you pay forever, either you delete all the demos. No way to STOP/DISABLE/FREEZE it

        all MSDN Subscribers should vote on that..

        subscribers need more credits on azure.. definitely this could lead to more benefits on both sides..

        No kidding - so many new things comings. Expanding universe. 3rd portal design change we need to keep up with as well.

        It should be possible to associate an MSDN accounts with the EA portal to keep track of usage. The EA Admin should be able to assign the MSDN account credits and control usages with limits

        I agree, our current MSDN subscription doesn't allow me to set up a few servers to test functionalities, and leave them running for more than a few days each month..

        similarly, I would like to see more O365 access. Preferably, I'd like to have 3 accounts to test with (one dev, one admin, and one basic). I also feel that subscriptions should be available to Premium subscriptions, not just Ultimate.
