  3. inform Azure customer when hosting is down.

    Azure hosting in Singapore has been down twice (for hours) without warning or explanation. It caught customer web and mobile services failed without warning. It will be great if Microsoft can inform customers if it is a scheduled maintenance, or provide a report why the service was down. We also need to provide explanation to our end users and customers.

  4. Provide a Unity3D SDK to integrate Azure into indie games.

    Currently the SDK provided are not compatible with Unity3D due to the framework difference. With the new Visual Studio tools for Unity, a compatible SDK for Azure would be great and avoid developers to have to rely on the REST apis...

  5. We have need feature boot diagnostic, where we can check screenshot and log file. It would be much convenient, if it is directly visible

    We have need feature boot diagnostic, where we can check screenshot and log file. It would be much convenient, if it is directly visible instead of giving option in boot diagnostic tab.

  8. Displeased with Free Trial Offer for Students

    Offer a free account to students, and then require that account to be upgraded to a paid account for nothing more than trying to run a JVM? AWS or other services are looking a lot more friendly right now.

  9. Help Yourself

    The human behavior as a result of a range of influences if we want to study human behavior in the position of the positions we had to look at the characteristics of the situation outside and look at the facts concerning the composition of biological and then look at the past history of the person who created the character, then the current state of motivation. Any look at the motives of this behavior in this situation and these four elements should be viewed as complementary to that if you depart from some lost its meaning

  12. I have an Elastic DB Pool, and attempted to resize my eDTU performance level from 100 to 200. This has taken hours and still reports as "Up

    I have an Elastic DB Pool, and attempted to resize my eDTU performance level from 100 to 200. This has taken hours and still reports as "Updating...".

    I know that this is still preview, so maybe that is it. It also appears that there is an issue in East US 2 with Network Infrastructure and Storage so maybe that is the problem. Or maybe I ran into a new bug that the engineering team needs to be made aware of....

    Not sure, but thought I'd report it,

  13. Management Studio

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Why is the Azure Management Platform always so ridiculously slow. I simply wanted to add my current IP to be able to do some work and it's taking 30 minutes just to pull up your web site. If you cannot fix this, I'll have no choice but to switch to Amazon. I simply do not understand why this is the problem. I realize you have a lot of customers but budget for it in your network. I'm trying to work from outside my desk and I cannot wait hours to get through pages.

  14. Keep Network Gateway Config on Subscription Shutdown

    If an Azure subscription is shutdown, once it's restarted by fixing the billing issue the Network Gateway settings are all gone. This means that I have to take an even longer outage to get any site to site VPN connections back up and running.

  15. Allow creation of Minecraft Server on Azure Dreamspark

    You should allow the creation of a Minecraft Server on the Dreamspark Azure plan. Why? Out of all the people who use Azure, student developers are the ones most likely to want to host a Minecraft server. It seems odd to allow enterprises to create Minecraft servers but not students. You already allow us to host web apps, and the amount of bandwidth that a Minecraft server takes up is pretty minimal. If you were really worried you could restrict the amount of people allowed on the server. Microsoft Azure is such a great service for us to learn how…

  16. Why is the Azure preview portal feature limited?

    Why is the Azre preview portal feature limited? Fx Azure backup and site-2-site VPN is not available. CSP customers are forced to logon to the preview portal, where all Azure services/features are not available.

  17. Is there any plan to have the temp disk of V1 and V2 VM to be a data disk for user to store data?

    Is there any plan to have the temp disk of V1 and V2 VM to be a data disk for user to store data?
    Because when we create different size VM, we can only increate the CPU and memory.
    The disk size is increased, however it’s temp disk for OS paging and can’t be used to store data.
