  1. Stop asking me to confirm every step of creating new virtual machine

    Imagine a website where you try to register and enter your details. Now imagine that website asking you if the entered name is correct. Now imagine that website asking you to confirm the name or you'll lose your changes. Now type in last name. Try typing in email. Now imagine that website asking you to confirm your last name or changes will be lost.

    I'm talking about new azure dashboard new virtual machine creation. Going through this setup and having to click OK or SAVE after every submenu really drained all energy I had.

  4. Azure VM should support Hardware acceleration by GPU for some intelligent video systems

    Intelligent video systems need process a large number of frames real-time,Hardware acceleration is a very usefull feature of the system to enhance product competitiveness.Azure should allow a part of users can use real GPU feature~We are very interested to move our applications onto the Azure,but currently,some of our company products can't work on the Azure VM because of the feature lost...

  6. Cost of VM use must depend on real processor load.

    Month cost of A3 with 4 virtual cores and 7GB RAM equal to month cost of 2x6 core Intel Xeon 2630V2 processor and 32GB RAM 2x1T HDD and 13T traffic limit. It's toooo expensive use Azure for demo or development purpose VMs where processor is not fully loaded all the time. But with dynamic billing can change situation.

  7. UI to change the VM type (An, Dn, etc) is not intuitive to find

    It took me quite a while to figure out how to change a VM's type from one type to another, e.g. from D12 to D3. I finally just started guessing that some things were clickable and happened to try clicking on the current type. Not intuitive at all.

  8. Retrieve VM internalUUID from REST API

    Since http://azure.microsoft.com/blog/2014/10/13/accessing-and-using-azure-vm-unique-id/ ther's now there's now an Azure-unique UUID but you need to log into VM to get it.

    It should be exposed in API (under RoleInstance entity?) so 3rd party integrations could identify uniquely VMs easily.

    We've also missed a way in API to search for a certain VM without having to look in every cloud service. This unique UUID could be useful.

  9. Display power status (on/off) on the server pinned to "Home" page

    Could you make a symbol on the servers pinned to the "Home" page that will display if the server is on or off? Now you need to go into each server to check if its on or not. I like the Portal btw

  10. Improvements on the Azure Internal Load Balancer

    The Azure Internal Load Balancer doesn't provide feedback as to the status of the endpoints - for example if a HTTP probe has been configured there is not way to determine if the probe is actually working.

    Additionally VMs behind the Azure ILB need to be able to talk to the IP address for the Azure ILB. Not having this has led to us having to add entries to a VM's hosts file - not ideal.

  11. Provide sorting & additional options to the "All Settings" blade for managing VMs

    This is kinda two requests in one, but it would be really nice for the following settings to be made to this blade: Browse All->Virtual Machines->My VM->All Settings


    1. Alphabetically sort the "All Settings" blade

    2. Add in options to manage the Alerts, Monitoring, Pricing Tier blades that are only accessible via the primary Virtual Machine blade (I know this seems redundant, but for whatever reason, my brain really really really wants to find those options in the All Settings area.)

    Thanks in advance!

  14. Getting scheduled "VM Maintenance" using Powershell

    Hi Corey,

    It would be nice if customers could read scheduled maintenance using either Powershell or just a basic REST call. This will bring flexibility and create integration with servicec management systems for notification.

  15. Autogrow for VMs

    Looks like there is work under progress to explore live migration / low downtime migration of VMs to reduce the down time during maintenance windows. Will be wonderful to build on it and make in place scale up / Down of a stand alone VM based on performance thresholds possible. Scaling out dosent foot the bill for all scenarios as it really requires SQL always on or ILB on top of it for the app to leverage elasticity in its current form.

  16. Error Creating VM UX


    1. Creating VM is not validating all fields

    2. I shouldn't be reading JSON to figure out what the problem is

    3. I should know what my options are

    4. Notification should take me to the configuration page and ask me to correct the error

  17. rename objects (affinity group, service bus, etc)

    I hate how some types of objects can't be renamed.

    Please let me rename things like Affinity Groups.

  18. Ability to manage virtual machine images and disks

    I cannot find my virtual machine images and detached disks. I'm forced to switch into the old portal to delete old VHDs

  19. ADFS HA Template

    One of the scenarios for Office 365 SSO is to deploy all of the SSO components in Azure: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn509537.aspx

    "Scenario 2: All Office 365 SSO integration components deployed in Azure. This is the new, cloud-only approach; you deploy directory synchronization and AD FS in Azure. This eliminates the need to deploy on-premises servers."

    If technically possible, it would be great to have instructions to setup site to site VPN, documentation which already exists, and then provision highly available ADFS servers via template.

    I think medium sized customers with on-premise AD desiring SSO would find this attractive.

  20. Dynamics CRM images on Azure

    The Sharepoint Farm deployment on Azure is a great capability. Having a similar capability for Dynamics CRM (on-premises) is going to be a huge win. There is already the Dynamics CRM online offering, however this doesn't satisfy most of the use case scenarios and having the one click CRM instance deployment capability would be a huge leap
