  1. free disk monitor

    Since classic alerts are retired, there is no option to monitor free disk space of a VM. I suggest creating a metric to monitor disk space, otherwise, administrators are not able to make sure their service is working fine.
    Thanks

  2. [Azure Storage] Lock for archived BLOB's rehydration

    Offline storage like "Archive Tier" can be a good option for storing sensitive data.
    If storage account holder can lock his/her archived BLOB's rehydration, it could be very secure.

  5. Restrict blob upload based on content-length

    Restrict blob uploads using SAS URL's of containers.

    The restriction should be based on the content-length or Blob size. This is not supported at the moment. This will help restrict unwanted large blobs.
    Able to restrict using content-type and cache-control headers.

  7. Table diagnostic setting should not be flagged by policy for Standard Blob Storage

    I have some policies that use to set the diagnostic setting for all available service's diagnostic setting in each kind of Azure Storage Account.

    And my policies can detect the Table service in BlobStorage but the policy cannot do anything at all (e.g. do remediate to enable the diagnostic setting).

    I understand that Table service is not supported in BlobStorage. In the Premium type it will not be flagged by policy as it should be, but in the Standard type it still be flagged even Table diagnostic setting has been disabled. And we can get the table service via the…

  8. Fix Bug: Azure Blob Client has issues when reading a stream that is larger than StreamMinimumReadSizeInBytes and the buffer is not base2

    See attached example C# file that illustrates the issue.
    When using an pageBlob.OpenRead(), along with a non-base2 buffer (i.e. 15 vs 16 bytes) to read the stream ( blobStream.Read(blobBuffer, 0, blobBuffer.Length); ) it will fail when you cross the boundary defined by StreamMinimumReadSizeInBytes

  12. Allow page blobs with variable-size pages

    There are cases where 512B is not always the ideal size. There are scenarios where a 64B, 128B or 256B blob is more appropriate for the application being developed.

    It would be great if you could allow a page size to be passed when the blob is being created.

  13. Allow longer leases that aren't infinite

    Currently leases on a block blob are limited to 15-60 seconds in duration or infinite in duration. Please change this to allow leases for up to an hour without a process renewing the lease every 60 seconds. I'm using the CloudBlockBlob.AcquireLease method.

  14. Allow a single soft-deleted snapshot to be Undeleted, similar to the Delete command.

    Regarding the new soft-delete for blob storage:

    The existing Delete command allows you to target and delete a specific snapshot, without affecting any other snapshot or the base blob.

    However, attempting to Undelete a specific snapshot instead undeletes all of the snapshots for that blob.

    I don't need all of the other snapshots undeleted when I am attempting to roll back my blob to a specific date. Especially when trying to do a bulk roll-back this has some major drawbacks, such as all snapshots being preserved past the 30 day retention policy.

    Especially since our blob storage contains a mix…

  15. Allow longer resource names

    Please revise the resource name length limits: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/jmstall/2014/06/12/azure-storage-naming-rules/

    The name length limits do not correspond with current possibilities. They are adequate rather to MS-DOS times.

    "Deployment name" is limited to 64 characters, which means that a template name has to be a way below the limit. Why???

  16. Ability to add a wildcard hostname

    Now azure storage can host static websites having the ability to point multiple host names at a storage account would be useful for multi tenancy, i would expect this to work by allowing you to add *.domain.name in the Custom domain blade.

  18. Diagnostics logs are generating 404, when the directory structure is not there yet.

    Diagnostics logs are generating 404, when the directory structure is not there yet in the Blob Container. In Application Insight, it's giving a false impression that there are issues of 404. We need to filter these errors, but its should be handled or hidden for us.

  19. Blob Soft-Delete to Allow Filter Criteria

    Similar to Lifecycle Management. Allow soft-delete functionality to be applied to only the container / prefixes that are specified in a rule.

    Higher adoption rates of those who cannot easily migrate existing systems to new storage accounts in order to limit the scope of the soft-delete functionality.

    There is currently no quick and easy way to undo the mess of soft-deletes and the performance impacts it can create.

  20. Add special ParquetBlobStorage allowing filtering

    Parquet is de facto standard for storing big data.

    However we usually do not need all date stored in parquet hive/files.

    It would be great if there were ParquetBlobStorage - extension of BlobStorage that:

    a) would understand parquet format i.e. in order to read schema it will read only end of the file

    b) allow selective column/row reading - no need to copy full blob when we need just couple columns or group of row.
