  1. Azure Table Storage Events

    Allow events to subscribe to fromAzure Table Storage row create, update and delete operations. This would be liked the blob create and update today except for table storage rows.

    Our long-term goal is to have every service within Azure publish events, however, we have yet to begin work on this one.

    As always, we’re passing the feedback along, but make sure you reach out to Storage as well so they hear your voice directly!

  2. Enable Cluster Shared Volume Support for Azure File Sync

    Enable Azure File Sync to support Cluster Shared Volumes so that Scale Out FIle Servers (SOFS) can be synchronized.

    Thank you for the feedback! This is not something we are currently planning on doing, as the guidance from Windows Server Storage team is not use cluster shared volumes for general purpose file servers. You can read more about their rationale here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/filecab/2013/12/05/to-scale-out-or-not-to-scale-out-that-is-the-question/

    We are aware that many folks are currently use CSVs/SOFS for general purpose file shares against the recommendation of the Windows Server team, so we are still open to considering this item. Please continue to vote for it so we can understand what the demand is here.

    Also, if you’re one of those customers that are would like to use CSVs/SOFS for general purpose file servers, please go hassle Ned Pyle and the Windows Server Storage team at their UserVoice here: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295056-storage/filters/top

    Thanks,

  3. Store storage account key last generated date

    It would be helpful if Azure tracked the last time a storage account's keys were regenerated. This would allow us to enforce policies around key lifetimes.

  4. DELETE https://myaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer?comp=list&prefix=foo

    The same way I can list blobs with a certain prefix in a blob container using http-method GET I would like to issue a http DELETE on the same combination container + prefix and effectively delete all blobs matching the prefix in the container!

    Thank you for your feedback. We think of this ask as “range delete”, and plan to deliver it after “batch delete”. Batch delete will allow you to enumerate multiple blobs to be deleted in a single HTTP request. Batch delete is planned for the coming year, but there is not an ETA we can share for range delete. We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at azurestoragefeedback@microsoft.com.
