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 providers454 votes

Currently you can only have one reserved (static) public IP for a given Azure VM. This limits any case where you would want to run multiple SSL enabled sites/applications on the standard 443 port.
I understand there is support for SNI SSL with host headers but not all applications and devices support this feature. Current competition in you market allow up to 5 IPs. A limit I believe is still arbitrarily low given the power of your larger VM instances available.122 votesplanned · AdminAzure IaaS Engineering Team (Azure IaaS Engineering Team, Microsoft, Microsoft Azure) responded
This is an area with active investment.
Add a feature that gives you an static IP regardless of what server you attach to it. That wat, if you have to migrate your server you keep your IP Address.3 votes
Hi there, this is good feedback and we already have this on our list for long term roadmap.
However, we have to make some non-trivial changes to make this happen.
