    1. Bring Your Own Public IP Address space and Internet subnet routing in Azure Virtual Networks

      When you own a public address space IPv4 and/or IPv6, Windows Azure should provide a way to use it (via LISP and/or classic routing).
      When you don't own a public address space, you should be able to rent it for your virtual network on Windows Azure both via Microsoft or via Tunnel Broker providers

    2. Block out access to azure resources from outside

      I am looking for a way to completely block out access to azure resources from outside of Japan. An access from abroad is most likely from a person who are not from our company.

      Recently, I am terribly worried because there are a lot of illegal access from the outside country. It's very reassuring to have the ability to shut off foreign access in Azure. This scenario is difficult to achieve because the NSG feature has a limit in a number of IP addresses which can be restricted.

    3. Manage allowed IP addresses - show and allow to add current IP address with one click (like in the old portal)

      Now you have to know your current IP address and enter it manually to allow access to SQL - means you need to find out your ip first.

      In the old portal you have the option to add your current IP address with one click (see attached screenshot).

      I would love it if you bring this feature to the new portal.

    4. APIM as Service

      hi team,

      would like to have IPAM as service: it would be nice to be able to create an "Azure IP range" and then request IP ranges for new vNets from it, perform inventory etc.

    5. Need a 1 to 1 mapping between data centers and the IP range list

      Trying to use Azure Backup to German Northeast and North Central US.

      Would be nice if there was a one to one mapping between the regions displayed here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-ca/global-infrastructure/regions/

      and what is listed here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41653

      Having problems guessing which region to use for the for following locations:

      German Northeast - options:

      <Region Name="europeeast">

      <Region Name="europenorth2">

      <Region Name="europenorth">

      North Central US: options:

      <Region Name="uscentraleuap">

      <Region Name="uscentral">

      <Region Name="usnorth">

      <Region Name="uswestcentral">
