  1. Add Azure Backup Extension for FreeBSD

    It would be great to also have the Azure Backup Extension for FreeBSD. This would allow backups for FreeBSD but also for appliances based on FreeBSD. (example: pfSense)

      • Enable access to PDF invoices for additional users/groups for Azure Germany

        Right now, only the account administrator can access PDF invoices within Azure Germany.

        This Microsoft article describes in detail how to enable access to monthly PDF invoices for additional users/groups:

        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/billing/billing-manage-access

        But according to a statement from a Microsoft customer support engineer, this is not available for Azure Germany.

        Why is that?

        • 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.

          • Open a DataCenter in Chile

            Chile is a growing market. Google has a data center here and the communications infrastructure for the cities is good. If you build it they will come ! the Internet providers here still charge a premium for international traffic, ignoring the fact that they are thieves, I believe a having Azure/Office 365 presence in Chile would generate interest in the service. We are testing n Brazil, but the lack of some services and the use of international traffic is a big problem for our plans.. We are a Gold Partner interested in migrating an existing online service to Azure but…

                Currently azure SQL service endpoint is only available within azure network. Is there any possibility to leverage this to on-premise machine via site-to-site/Express route.

                    • Prepaid credit card payment option

                      Please enable pre-paid credit card payment option. One of my clients needs to purchase SQL Database from Azure. But I don’t have a credit card. Normally I using pre-paid credit card for online purchase. But Azure does not support prepaid credit card. This will reduce some customers from Azure. I think if this option will enable will get more customers.

                      • Option to use webhooks for Azure backup notification

                        I want an option like most of the other azure features support is to do notifications using webhooks so we can for instance forward critical events to Teams or Slack.

                        • Network Security Group Source Azure Services option

                          My scenario include two Virtual Machines acting as Web Servers and a Traffic Manager in-place if the primary node fails I can switch to the other VM that is in a different datacenter. However they are accessible only by specific public IPs and to get Traffic Manager working, I had to create a rule in a different port for ANY.

                          Wouldn't be easier to have an option on Source Azure Services, like there is in Azure SQL Server firewall?

                              I hope we could increase storage account quota over 100.
                              Currently, storage account quota limit is 100, we canot icrease more.
                              But if you need one storage account per VM's VHD file, it will be soon run out.

                                • 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

                                  • 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…

                                    • HTTP error 400. The size of the request headers is too long

                                      BUG: HTTP error 400. The size of the request headers is too long

                                      Azure portal has a bug which ften returns only a blank page with:
                                      HTTP error 400. The size of the request headers is too long

                                      The problem seems to be related to a cookies named OpenIdConnect.nonce.* . If I clena them this will work fine till next time...

                                      Thanks,
                                      Patrick Marques

                                      • 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...

                                        • 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
