  1. Keep notifications from previous session in azure portal

    Notifications disappear from last session. Due to this its difficult to keep track of inprogress work.
    E.g- Importing a database
    Notification - Inprogress
    After refresh notification is gone and you have no idea about the status of your import .

  2. when a server shuts down unintentionally due to a host outage, please notify all customers affected.

    Currently MS Azure notifies customers during scheduled outages, however, in the event of an emergency outage, where a customer's server is rebooted, (due to a host hardware failure, or whatever), all customers affected should be notified as a courtesy. We had an outage and had our services not started currently due to a password issues, we would have known that the server went down.

  3. Azure Auto-Scale planned capacity increase

    There should be a option to easily increase resource availability based on existing data, like something that would reflect the phrase "Increase machine count by 1 every 30 min from 7am until 9am". Currently setting different rules for every 30 min breaks and auto scale usually raises 5 at once...

  4. Azure USGovernment should have a status page

    Azure USGov doesn't have a system status page, and I know I'll need one.

    Here's the AWS page for comparison:
    http://status.aws.amazon.com/govcloud

  6. Auto-failover to next credit card if bounced

    In our case as a startup, we do not get credit approval so that we can have invoice as payment method. So we have to have credit card.

    In distant future, if we loose the credit card and we report it lost, the next Azure payment will bounce. And what then happens automatically, is that ALL our servers are shutdown! Immediately and without further notice.

    This is a big problem since high availability is key to our product.

    There is a possibility to add additional credit card to Azure. However, there is no automatic failover: if primary card fails, then…

  7. alert when a VM I/O limit is reached

    When a VM hits its global VM-wide IOPS or bandwidth limit and throttling kicks in, provide a facility for creating an alert based on this situation.

    Currently, the methods to detect I/O throttling rely on collecting guest OS statistics and comparing them to the limits specified by Azure. It would be a real benefit to determine at the hypervisor level when I/O throttling has taken place and record this in customer-visible metrics. These metrics are already internally visible to Microsoft support, so the data is collected-- just not presented.

    At a minimum, the disastrous situation where whole-VM I/O throttling has…

  8. Don't time limit the free Azure trial

    We appreciate the free Azure credits to help many of us get started and learning. I signed up and didn't realize it was limited for use within a month. I signed up a few weeks before taking holiday and now that I'm back, the trial will be ending. Bummer.

  12. please auto enable Secure_Input and Secure_Output settings on Logic App KeyVault activities.

    Hi,

    Azure logic apps currently have optional setting on KeyVault activities to secure input and output values. We need it to be default as these are secrets and critical to any organization.

    Instead of leaving them as optional, please auto enable SecureInput and SecureOutput settings on Logic App KeyVault activities.

    Thanks.

  14. access specific folder in Azure with ftp

    I have an app Service in Azure that contains some folders and files.

    There is a user who has to upload some files to an isolated folder or drive that my app can reach. He has to upload them via ftp.

    I like to limit the users access to only one folder or a specific drive that my app service can reach.

  16. sweden

    Provide Azure region in Scandinavia

    A lot of companies and governments in Sweden demand that their data is physically stored in the country. By not having an Azure data center there prevents a lot of applications and services for the Swedish market to be hosted in Azure.
    Amazon is now realizing this and puts up 3 datacenters in the middle of Sweden.
    Sweden has alot of good qualities, like cheaper cooling because of the weather as well as alot of good technical personell availiable, and putting up a scandinavian region, would make it much better for all scandinavian countries, because…

  17. Nordic azure region

    Build a data center (Azure region) to Finland or Sweden. As it stands there is a lot of distance to closest data center from Finland or Sweden.

    Having data center close to the customers would bring new customers and also improve service quality to old customers.
