  1. Add Hyper-V Replica for offsite backup

    Allow us to send Replicas offsite for DR in case Azure goes down. Customers are not trusting cloud initiatives enough to move fully into the cloud without having an offsite backup.

  5. Add VM to DC from management API

    Currently it is only possible to add only new VMs to DC either through management API or powershell.

    For example there is a VM, which i want to join to DC running in the same VNET and in azure IaaS. There is no way we can do that either from API or Powershell, VM needs to be added to DC manually by specifying DNS IP in IPV4 config.

    It is alway important to update existing machines that are running in work group to be added to DC and VNET without bringing them down.
    Also it would be useful for managing…

    This is a very interesting idea and one I like a lot! Let me dig into whether this is something we could consider in the future. Thanks for the idea! :)

  10. 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).

  11. Display VM size (S/M/L/XL) for every role on WA Portal

    Create a label on the Windows Azure portal which indicates the configured VM size for each role deployed to a tenant. Customers have difficulty easily determining what is deployed in larger deployment scenarios.

  13. Allow easy donation of unused CPU cycles to cancer research, Folding@home, etc.

    I would like to easily 'donate' my unused CPU cycles towards a good cause, such as cancer research within the Folding@home project.

    Ideally this setting would be incorporated into the config of my worker roles, or within the Windows Azure portal.
