  1. Backup Windows 2003 Servers

    We have some legacy Windows 2003 servers we would like to use Azure Backup. We then plan on implementing servers in Azure and it would be nice to have the data available from the 2003 servers already in the cloud to make for an easier restore to the new Azure servers.

    get a new call center staffed by people who actually know what microsoft azure is because these phillipinos have no clue what AZURE is and then hang up on you once they get frustrated by that fact.

  4. Add multiple Azure Disaster Recovery Site in SCVMM based on customers subscription

    It would be great if you guys could add multiple azure disaster recovery sites in scvmm based on customers subscription i.e. this would probably only benefit hosters.

  5. Allow posting support messages about performance issues and malfunctions without requiring support plan

    I have many identical databases deployed to Azure. One of these databases at the moment suffers extreme performance loss, while much larger databases with the same schema work fine. This indicates technical issue in Azure. Unfortunately it is not possible to report this to Microsoft unless signing up to support plan. In other words it is not possible to notify Microsoft that something is wrong with their service unless you pay extra monthly fee for this privilege. I find this unacceptable - I am not asking for developer support - I just need to inform Microsoft about problems in the…

  6. Improve the ease of sign in and the speed of page draws.

    Microsoft sites are slow and difficult compared to anything else on the web, especially compared to Google. Why can't Microsoft make anything fast and easy?

  7. Make it possible to undelete a VHD if it gets deleted.

    It appears someone deleted our VM and VHD over night.

    We cannot recover it without going to the backups

    Very unhappy that this cloud thing is not as good as advertised

  8. fix the looping session timeout

    While browsing the options for my new azure account the portal session timed out (not expected because I was clicking on things). The option to login and continue refreshed the screen, but was immediately followed by the session timing out again. This repeated a half dozen times until I finally was able to click the logout menu item before the time our. Windows live then complained that it failed to log me out of several services. I kept trying with the same behavior. At one time windows live suggested I close my browser and clear my cookies. Huh?

    I think…

    Will prefer not go to complete Cloud. Whenever there is maintenance we need to wait for MSFT

  12. Provide a means to mark an IaaS Virtual Machine as unhealthy or 'not yet ready'

    Currently when the infrastructure decides to reboot a VM for maintenance there is some kind of internal probing done by the Hypervisor to determine when the VM is healthy and then to reboot VM's in other fault/upgrade domains.

    The conditions under which a VM is considered healthy is too optimistic.

    Our database servers need 5-15 minutes to 'warm up' before being 'healthy'. This means the infrastructure is taking down both our primary and secondary virtual machines in a time frame that overlaps with both their warmup periods, bringing down our production application.

  13. Don't update Android documentation until you launch the new Android SDK 2.0

    Almost all Azure Android documentation require Azure Android SDK 2.0 but there are not any official link to the new Android SDK 2.0.

    You can not do neither the old examples nor the new examples because you do not have the SDK.

    You can not do anything

  14. Give notifications like a configurable pop up of what is new in Azure - Services; VMs, Etcs

    The idea is to give more direct feedback of what is new in Azure, currently the end user as knoladge of what are the new services available by accessing the service and all the rest is hidden.

    The idea is to create a configurable pop up where eatch user can configure for exemple:

    I want to be notified when new services are available in Virtual Machine services

    or

    I whant to be notified when new cloud services are available.

    This is just like a pop up with information of new releases for the services that i selected.
