  1. View only access to queue, table content in the preview portal

    Every time I try free trial and use azure queue and table for practice - I feel that view only access to azure table and queue is not available and I end building my own. It will easier to continue exploring similar azure features if view only access to contents are available - for example, for azure queue - view currently queued messages. If Azure portal is not suitable for it, then may be some Microsoft tool do the same - something like MMC in windows server.

  4. Storage tiering / Replication


    • Offer capability like SSD/Sata/Sas high perf, Low cost with automatic tiering, offer deduplication capability mean in the same Data center store 10 times the same file for the same price, the capability to use DPM for Backup , SCOM capability ...
      Offer live replication in active /active Mode with GSLB like front end capability ..

    But Azure is a very good product.

  5. Create storage account sharding infrastructure.

    Create storage account sharding infrastructure. It's an enormous, error prone task to create this infrastructure by hand. This really needs to be baked into the infrastructure.

  6. Increase storage account create calls per subscription limit

    “RDFE throttles the storage account creation; the default throttling limit is 20 per subscription per hour "

    Most of our automation creates storage account on the fly and they fails with following reasons

    "The maximum number storage account creations calls allowed for a subscription in an hour has been exceeded. Please try again after some time."

  8. HTTP compression support for Azure Storage Services (via Accept-Encoding/Content-Encoding fields)

    Add support for 'Accept-Encoding' and 'Content-Encoding' fields in the HTTP request in Azure Storage Services with supported compression schemes gzip and deflate. This should helps reduce network payload by 10x-50x in some cases like saving/loading bulk records to Azure Table Storage.

  9. Block deleting of Storage Accounts if Not Empty

    If I am supposed to store Terra Bytes of data, in Management Portal easy delete option is very dangerous. Along with no way to retrieve deleted data. Even accidentally it does happen, today I created a test blob storage to test media services and then decided to delete it. I noticed, I could easily have selected something else and deleted it.


    1. Two Factor Delete Operation, send a code to email and ask user to enter the code to delete.

    2. Perform delete after actual 24 hours.

    3. Use some sort of warning indication in email that delete request is under processing.

    I…

  10. Allow control of storage account DefaultServiceVersion through Azure Panel for true HTTP/1.1

    By default, when a new Storage Account is created, the DefaultServiceVersion property is set to 2009-09-19, which is really old. Many storage accounts created now don't need backwards compatibility with this very old version.
    It would be very useful to allow control of DefaultServiceVersion through Azure control panel or better, when creating a new Storage Account (same way you can select Windows release when creating VM) so that one can select it to a more recent version and thus allow storage account to respond to HTTP/1.1 Range request.

  11. Secure Azure Storage access using WAAD/ACS

    I'd like to expose access to Azure storage resources directly to my tenants, but I need to use the same security mechanisms that my users use for accessing other parts of my system (e.g., web apps).

  13. Ability to set Proxy Server

    Allow the ability to set the proxy server for requests on windows azure storage

    I will say yes you can set the global but this isn't always ideal in all environments.

  14. Azure Control Panel functionality for snapshots or incremental backup

    I know that data is replicated but that doesn't protect against logical errors, accidental removal by admin or hacker screwing up the data.

    So I really would like to see this done natively from Azure instead of building my own backup systems like these:

    Thank you for your feedback. We view this ask as a set of related features.

    Soft delete for blobs enables you to save and recover your data where blobs or blob snapshots are deleted. It does not protect against container or account deletion. This feature is currently generally available. You can see the announcement here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/soft-delete-for-azure-storage-blobs-ga/ and the full documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-blob-soft-delete

    Object versioning will also offer object-level protection, and will offer a few incremental improvements to soft delete. Specifically, it will make recovery of deleted data easier. This feature is planned for the coming year.

    Container soft delete will protect against container-level deletion and modification. This feature is planned for the coming year as well.

    Native support for blob backup will protect against account-level deletion and modification, and is currently on our backlog.

    We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your…

  15. Enable multiple custom domains for storage accounts

    I would like to register 2 or more custom domains to point to 1 storage account.

    For example, foo.com, bar.com both point to blob.etc.windows.net
