  1. Virtual Machines Disks view must show disk size

    In Virtual Machines when you switch to Disks view, it’s very useful to show each disk size! I mean a new column with this important information.
    Please, this is a simple information, but helps a lot.

  3. Improve the way VHD files are visually associated with VMs in Management Portal

    Every Virtual Machine is associated to a VHD, but when we have multiple Virtual Machines in the same subscription, it becomes extremely difficult to identify the VHD linked to a particular Virtual Machine in the subscription.

    Personally, I will add more information on storage item to correctly and sharply inform the user. I will also set filters on the UI to list only VHD storage items already used by VM (stopped and/or running)

  4. Additional monitoring points for Virtual Machines

    I would like to be able to monitor and setup notifications for problems such as low disk space on virtual machines. This is particularly important for machines that were created when the C drive was only 30GB.

  5. Create a new patched instance and auto swap instead of bringing down single instance production deployments

    When running a single instance every so often the instance will go down for patching. The instance appears as "VM Stopped" for a period of time, then comes back.

    Rather than forcing downtime to a production role, why not spin up a patched version of the instance then swap it in for the unpatched instance, and delete the old one?

    MS documentation already points out the instances can be created and destroyed at any time, so we've already created our apps in a way that can handle such scenarios. Applying the patches this way will save the downtime (we've observed…

    One complexity here is because these instances are persistent, creating a snapped copy might be tricky or impossible.

    Is this something that could be enabled with Auto-Scale?

  6. Provide single VM instance RDS capability

    Standalone RDS (RemoteApp and VDI) is only available for Windows Server 2008 R2 and not for Windows Server 2012. Server 2012 requires active directory and also will not allow it to be installed on the same VM as RDS. Please provide the capability to run all services needed for RDS on a single Windows Server 2012 VM.

  7. VS 2010 Guest VM Role: Runs VSw/AzureTools: Allows sandbox development via RDP.

    I'd like to deploy a special role that would provide me access to a endpoint I can connect to via Remote Desktop. When I login, I'd like a Virtual Visual Studio with Azure Tools, that has a XDrive (configured via configuration) so I can do all my Azure Development without ever having to install a thing. I'll pay monthly for the compute time I use developing, and the storage to keep my projects (via XDrive).

  9. Provide indication of OS type when viewing Virtual Machine list and instance details.

    Provide an icon or some other visual indicator of the type of operating system the Virtual Machine instance is running. This would be helpful on both the page listing all VMs, as well in the 'quick glance' section when viewing a specific VM.

  11. RDP which works also with Mac OS X

    I tried many Mac RDP clients but none of them could connect to the Azure instances, maybe because of the special load balancer settings within the azure RDP file.

  12. Bring Citrix onboard Azure, Citrix is on AWS already

    As a Citrix Service Provider we need cloud computing platforms to host our customer's environments. We need to be able to host standalone and multitenented environments. Hurry up as AWS is already ahead and they already have many Citrix partners and businesses running their Citrix infrastructure on AWS. Don't miss this boat MS.

  13. Instance(s) Down Maintenance Message

    I thought it a great idea to have the Windows Azure platform automatically display a site "maintenance" message to the site vistors (web role) when the load balancer is not able to connect to any of the configured web role instances. This "maintenance" message should be customizable (HTML/CSS).

  14. Allow VMS to be added or removed from a cloud service after they are created.

    I'd like to be able to move my VMS in and out of a cloud service.

    The cloud service is a load balancer as far as I'm concerned.

    I want to be able to manage my VMS separate from it but get the benefit of load balancing in front of my applications.

  15. Extend azure cache(Preview) to be used from IaaS VMs

    Currently it is not possible to use azure cache role (preview) from the web site deploy on VM that is running in IaaS.

    It would be nice to make it possible

  18. specify which local ip to give to my vm when I create or attach it.

    Specify which local ip to give to my vm when I create or attach it. This way I can specify a series of dns servers and then actually have servers to apply those addresses to. This is also helpful when migrating servers since it will then maintain its addressing structure.

  19. VM machine should contain software library folder so time for downloading and installing will be reduce.

    Comparing with Cloudshare.com

    1. VM there are very less preconfigured VM's are available.
    2. They provide the access through browser good one for mobile device users.
    3. Share the own machine drives for data sharing with RDP VM machine should be included.
    4. Deployment of Non Microsoft (MySql and PHP) website need to make easy with tool tips and tutorials.
    5. Overall Good Speed in VM machine with best BCP support.
    6. Thanking you for providing preview to test the environment .

  20. Provide UI tooling for VM upload

    It is fairly difficult and complicated the number of steps needed for uploading a VM/VHD to azure. We really need a UI tool. Perhaps now that Win8 has Hyper-V built in there could be a button in the Hyper-V GUI to upload the VM/VHD straight to Azure in a nicely integrated wizard way.
