  1. 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.

  3. Planned Maintenance - Complete at Night for RDS services in Azure

    We are hosting production RDS services in Azure. We have them configured in an availability set to ensure the servers are not on the same host in the datacenter. The planned maintenance as described in the article below rebooted production terminal servers in the middle of the users work day causing lost work and angry customers. Recommend we alter the process to complete these types of reboots at night for the geographical region, or configure a warning to users to log out and put the RDS server in drain mode before rebooting to minimize loss when the user session state…

  5. Please fix mistranslation message of 'Create an image from VHD' panel.

    When we forget checking 'I have run waagent -deprovision on the virtual machine' checkbox and click OK button, we'll see 'Required' message. (p1-eng.png)

    However, in Japanese language, the message shows '必要なディスク容量' (p1-jp.png)
    It's mean 'storage size which we require'. ...I'm confused very much.

    Please fix this message, ex. '必須のオプションです'

  6. Azure Planned Maintenance Strategy

    I have concerns in regards to the use-cases of Azure and how the current Planned Maintenance strategy impacts this.

    There are many use-cases where Availability Sets are of no use and do not protect you from downtime. VDI Platforms for example require persistent sessions to Single VMs. No amount of redundant VMs in an Availability Set will alleviate the impact to End Users if their Desktop VM is rebooted during business hours.

    The Citrix Netscaler has recently been released on the Azure Marketplace which in theory should open up further use-cases for Azure. But why would I pay thousands to…

  12. Oracle Linux / CentOS boot disk size

    Please allow to increase Linux boot disk size from default 30GB to 100 GB on need basis. Current 30 GB is too less.

  13. 3.5GB of RAM is insufficient for moderate workloads

    Despite the best efforts from OSG, Windows Server still consumes a considerable amount of RAM even when stripped-down. Add to that the memory usage by an instance of a local SQL Server (when Azure SQL is inappropriate or too costly) it's easy to hit the 3.5GB memory limit and suffer disk thrashing.

    I would like to see the memory allocations doubled at each instance tier level, though you can retain the CPU core count. If doubling is not economically feasible please extend the "Memory Intensive" range to offer a 2-core, 7GB option ($140/month?).

    Question: why is memory doled out at…

  15. VM memory monitoring

    Azure management portal currently does not provide any way to monitor IAAS VM Memory usage (historical graph). It would be nice to have this added there

  16. 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...

  18. Provide a way to set up phone and fax services for Virtual Machines

    It would be great if you could add a way for us to create virtual modems and reserve phone numbers or phone number banks for use with VMs.

    It would be nice to allow some of the services that are offered on the VMs to interact with a service like this.

    For example, a web service that may want to verify the phone number of an individual and to do so may have the machine call the number and provide a verification code that they can in turn enter on the web service. Having the ability to fax with that…
