How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

Disk type

Hello, from an automation perspective, it would be good for a Windows Guest VM be aware of the media type for the disks that are attached to a it (ex: auto cache for S2D to work automatically with SSD+HDD).
Even when I have a VM with HDD and SSD, it will show the disk type as HDD ( using posh: Get-PhysicalDisk | Select-Object FriendlyName, MediaType, Size ).

        aha, the number in front of the disk is the lun number.... nevermind....

        It would not only be great if the OS was disktype aware, but also that the Azure Portal "sees" the internal name or display's the port, target and lun numbers. We now need to add multiple disks one by one and rename them internally (from msft Virtual Disk) to have a visual link between the disks in the VM and Azure Portal
