  1. SLES 15 support for ASR

    My customer hopes that SLES 15 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15) will be supported for Azure Site Recovery in the near future. I'd like you to consider that as soon as possible.

    • be able to setup a Azure Backup to protect my Sharepoint Online data with a large retention

      We really need a way to protect SharePoint Online with a large retention time (3 till 6 months). Let Azure Backup kick-in for this point so we are able to set the right RPO ( Recovery point objective ) for this service.

          under review  ·  Guy Burstein responded

          Windows Azure is commercially available in the following 84 countries, and this is not one of them. Learn more here: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/faq/

          We are adding more countries as we can, but in the meantime if you wish to use the service in an unsupported country, you’ll need to use one of several third party providers which front the Azure Subscriptions for organizations in unsupported countries. Just keep in mind that those providers are not MSFT so perform due-diligence to make sure any vendor you select is reputable.

          Thanks for understanding.

        • Allow running headless Chrome (or other browser) in Function apps or Web apps

          Basically it's this:
          https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/gcp/introducing-headless-chrome-support-in-cloud-functions-and-app-engine

          Now obviously Google has a bit of an advantage here what with Chrome being their own tech but there are so many blogs out there with people talking about complicated Docker solutions just to run headless Chrome in the cloud.

          It would be great if we could get a solution where we could run Puppeteer in much the same way, or allow web apps to run Chrome without having to be inside Docker and we could manage a pool of Chromes without having to manage Docker as well.

            • Need a function to change a format for X-Forwarded-For in Application Gateway.

              Some web server uses the X-Forwarded-For header as only IP address format, not IP address:Port.

              So we would like to choice the format for X-Forwarded-For header by web server requirement.

              For example, "Require ip" in RemoteIPHeader directive on Apache should be IP address format.

              • Allow Static Public IP's on Virtual Network Gateways

                Static Public IP's cannot be used with Virtual Network Gateways. This can potentially be very problematic if a Virtual Network Gateway ever needs to be re-created or re-provisioned.

                Example: what if we have 30 separate tunnels to a Virtual Network Gateway and it needs to be re-created or re-provisioned? This would result in a new Public IP being provisioned (takes about 30-40 minutes - of downtime!) which would require 30 remote VPN Administrators to be engaged to rebuild their side of the tunnel. This could be easily resolved by allowing Static Public IP's to be associated with Virtual Network Gateways.

                • Allow VIP Swap when Staging slot is up and Running

                  Recently we had a problem where we had ~1h of downtime which could have been avoided if VIP swap wasn’t failing.
                  The problem was that 1 single VM was in a busy state in Production slot. All VMs in the staging slot were up and Running.

                  Can you please allow a VIP swap if:
                  1. All VMs in Staging slot are in Running state
                  2. There’s the same or higher number of VMs in Staging slot compared to Production

                  I know that it’s by design that VIP swap is possible only if all VMs in both Staging and Production slot…

                  • RateCard metadata with their spec information

                    I want to get RateCard meter metadata with their spec information (e.g. size, memory, cores...). Because I have to provide that data to our finance department.
                    I can get the spec information of VMs by Get-AzureRmVMSize API, but they do not have MeterId, so can not associate with RateCard meter metadata.
                    And I also want to get them about SQL Database, Redis Cache, and App Service. But they do not have API which can get their spec information in the first place.
                    I think it is very useful if can get meter metadata with their spec information by RateCard API.

                    • Feature of testing if alert mail or message would be sent correctly in Azure Monitor.

                      When I create an alert rule in Azure Monitor to send an email, I want to test if the email would be sent and received correctly.

                      Now, it doesn't seem to have this feature in Azure Monitor.
                      So it is better for me if there is this feature.

                        • Key Vault like as RA-GRS

                          Currently, Key Vault have redundancy and availability, but I can not access to secondary region manually.
                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/key-vault-disaster-recovery-guidance

                          Region fail over is automacically, however I would like to access to secondary like as RA-GRS of Azure Storage before than failover because I want to more enhance BCP of our services.

                          * I guess, Azure doesn't occurred region failover so far, but services failur occurred sometimes in regions.

                          • Make Azure available in Haiti

                            Microsoft Azure should be available for developers and businesses in Haiti. This country lack of a power supply system you can rely on for business, so the cloud is our best options. Please consider adding Haiti in the list of supported countries while signing up for Microsoft Azure.

                            • Backend heath status of Application Gateway

                              We deployed the Application Gateway on the subnet where NSG's In-Bound rules is set. In the result, we got the status of backend health is 'unknown'. We got the 'Healthy' status when the NSG doesn't associate to subnet. Even if NSG's In-Bound rules is set, We'd like to confirm the backend health.

                                    • Make Windows Server 2016 Core available

                                      Not every role is available in Nano. I don't need full GUI for domain controllers for example, but can't deploy on Nano.

                                      Perhaps other roles are coming in Nano, but in the meantime make core available, as it is for Windows 2012.

                                      • Monitor physical hosts in Azure Data Center

                                        We would like to monitor physical host in Azure Data Centers, because we don't have information about health status of physical hosts where located our VMs.

                                        • Need a function to disable Server: header in HTTP response from Application Gateway

                                          Currently, Application Gateway sets Server header like a "Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0" in HTTP response.

                                          For some security reason, I want to delete this header in HTTP response.

                                          If Application Gateway has a function to enable/disable to add the header, It will be more useful.
