  1. Add MFA in China Azure

    I am a China Azure Customer, I think my Azure management account is important, if hacked, the hacker could delete all my VMs and data. So if the Azure login account have 2nd authentication will be great, e.g., add mobile SMS verification. After I inquired the tech support, he replied me this message: Currently, China Azure doesn’t support MFA, I hope support this function.

  4. Send customer Alerts when you experience downtime

    Just spent a significant amount of time investigating an issue with a client's SQL database, only to eventually discover that there's an issue with this service in my region. I can live with the downtime but would appreciate a heads-up if you know there's an issue affecting me, which should be pretty trivial to automate.

    I presumed that this is so obvious that it must be something I just haven't subscribed to, but can't find anything!

  6. integrate Azure File Services in DFS-R

    If you use Azure File Services as an alternative to a file server, it would be very useful to have a replication mechanism like DFS-R.

  7. Allow access to the Australian Azure Regions for accounts with non-australian billing address

    Currently only Azure subscribers that have an Australian or New Zealand billing address are granted access to the Australian Azure regions.

    Microsoft cites Australian tax laws as the reason for this restriction. Whether this is a real reason or not is doubtful, as it seems our cloud providers allow this - one such provider is AWS.

    One of the selling points of Microsoft Azure is its extended reach and data centres located around the world - it appears to be false advertising if Microsoft then don't actually allow certain customers to access and deploy services in all those regions.

  8. Fix bug: Deallocated VMs may not release dynamic IP addresses

    On some of our VMs, the dynamic internal ip was actually fixed and not even released when the VM was deallocated. The Azure Portal showed "dynamic" and no value for the IP address.

    Please fix:
    - the information shown on the Portal
    - Allow to reuse a dynamic IP address when the VM has been deallocated.

  10. Why to ask credit card details for login to Azure from MSDN subscriptions

    For MSDN user, why the system is asking for credit card details ? MSDN user is entitled for some $ per month.

    My suggestion :: Let them use MSDN benefits, if they exceeds, than the system should prompt for credit card or converting to EA, and if they disagree the resources should be shutdown.

  11. Need to have cap on each Azure Account

    Azure Dev team, need to plan to include cap ($) on each azure account. If it reaches that cap limit, the azure admin needs to update the cap details, for that particular account.

  14. Installed & Running software details on VM dashboard

    Installed & Running software details on VM dashboard

    Currently you can't see any detail of the running software on the VM.
    This would be useful to avoid doing RDP to the VM, then taking note of any software running into it, etc..
    I suggest to have something like the "Program and Features" icon, included into the VM dashboard or somewhere.
    An excellent tool would be to have an option to download details of the software installed (name, brand, version, date installed, size, etc, etc.), and all this for the OS also. A column indicating if the software was included with…

  16. Make it compatible/useable with a standard Microsoft account.

    Allow everyone, not just assignees, able to use it! It would allow for better ratings and more downloads.

  17. Simplify integration between Azure and Office 365

    Now to integrate my Office 365 users are avaiable only by transfer AD administration to Azure VM. But it means, what unavailability of VM means unavailability of administration. If I make a decision to use another VM or not use it ever, I will lost my AD control.
    To resolve it, it needed to add possibility of accounts domain administration on Office 365 side, but syncronize passwords to VM.

  18. give developers a way to suspend a session

    As a developer, sometimes I need to finish something the next day without starting from scratch. It would be helpful to be able to stop where I am and then continue the next day, (the way I could with VirtualBox or VMWare).
    Also, is there any way to give the user status when trying to log in? I understand that the machine is booting up, but it is not helpful to get an RDP error or a login that does nothing.

  20. Examine your scale up process....

    I've noticed that since I added a scheduled scale-up operation to my cloud service, my external uptime monitor alerts every morning for 5 minutes at the precise time of the scale-up operation [I even changed the schedule to be certain of this], which says to me that something about "scaling up" isn't doing as you might think!!
