Notification to users on outages and VM SKU availability.
We had configured to use Azure Batch Service in Batch Service Allocation Mode. (and not user Subscription Mode)
We have been using Azure Batch Services for past 11 months and things were fine until we hit few issues recently--
1 Network Ouages
2 F2SV2 Series of VM un-available for usage
Now as service user's this were serious issues impact our business. And we would like to be notified for such outages and unavailability of VM's.
Since Batch Service was provisioned to have sufficient dedicated core quota for F and other series of VM, suddenly un-availability without any notification was a great disaster for production execution.
Please have notification made available to users of batch service.

yes, a timely notification about Microsoft side outage or unavailability of azure resources or PaaS service elements being consumed by us (e.g. Azure Batch Service in above case), will definitely provide a good User experience. Hope, Microsoft team will work on this request at the earliest possible. Thanks.
