  1. Import/Export Feature in Brazil. Without it is not practical to sell big workloads

    We have several scenarios where customers have huge workloads and it's being impractial do upload those data to Azure using WAN Links

      • Update the Azure Import/Export Tool (WAImportExport.exe) to support the Larger Block Blobs available

        2 Suggestions:

        1. Update the Azure Import/Export Tool (WAImportExport.exe) to support the Larger Block Blobs now available.

        21st December 2016 - New V1 Azure Import/Export Tool (WAImportExport.exe) available.
        https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/microsoft-azure-storage-import-export-announcements/
        22nd December 2016 - General Availability of Larger Block Blobs in Azure Storage, up from 195GB to 4.77TB.
        https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/general-availability-larger-block-blobs-in-azure-storage/

        Except the V1 Tool does not allow for the larger block blobs, and excludes any files that are over 195GB in size, even though Block Blob storage now supports this (a whole day later than the tool was announced).
        Guess I'll have to try and use /BlobType:PageBlob after the event and see…

        • Improved Status for Azure Storage Import / Export job

          The current Azure Storage Import job process does not provide the subscriber any status updates as to when the drive is received, processed or transfer to storage starts. It would be great if we could subscribe to email notification so we can track the process or at a minimum log the detail in the portal for the subscriber to see. I have little info on when the job was started and can only see "Transferring" in the portal UI. Maybe this can be included when Import / Export is enabled in the "new" portal?
