  1. Enable Soft Delete in Azure Data Lake Gen2

    You can turn on the Soft Delete option in Blob Storage, but not when it's got the ADLS Gen2 box checked. Please make this available in the ADLS Gen2 storage accounts. We just had an accidental deletion of a top-level folder in the container and it couldn't be restored by the MS engineers even with the geo-replication going.

  3. Make the non classic Storage Account available from Azure Scheduler Job, Cloud Service Auto-Scaling, etc.!!

    Currently there is no way to target non classic Storage Account as:
    1. temporary deployment storage when doing manual deployment
    2. cloud service auto-scale storage queue based trigger
    3. scheduler job storage queue trigger.

    It would be nice to allow the newer storage account to be available along w/ the classic storage account for doing all these things.

  4. 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…

  6. "Individual Contributor" Role

    Members of the proposed built-in role "Individual Contributor" would be able to create any type of resources and have full (Contributor) access to them. But they would not have any access to resources created by other users (unless explicitly granted).

  7. Simulate outage of any Azure service

    As an Azure customer, I want to be able to simulate an outage of any Azure service my solution is using. This will allow me to test resiliency of my solution against various service outages. It will be useful for Azure itself too (think about the latest South Central outage).

  8. Azure Media Player - Is there any way to add custom icon (for a new plugin) to the right control bar icons?

    I am adding a new plugin, where the functionality will be triggered on a button click (by adding a new icon the control bar). Is there any way, we can send icon details to azure media player options which creates the icon on the right control bar(near to sub title) so hover functionality will be added by default.

  14. 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…

  18. Provide HA for Cisco ASAv or just give some SLA for single appliance.

    Current Cisco ASAv deployment do not support native High Availability.
    Since it is critical to have (ie Azure Virtual Gateway has it) please provide some form of redundancy or provide some SLA for such appliances.
    I understand that limitation of L2 implementation in Azure can limit ability to create active/standby failover. So can you provide seemless migration of appliance or guaranteed restart time for VM or any other option.

  19. [Azure China FeedBack] Node reboot should be notification to end users via Email or Alert.

    If node reboot/crash or VM has to automatically moved to a different and physical node to avoid further impact . A notification should be sent to end users which VM running on this node. Our customer complaint that they didn't receive any emails or alerts when VM reboot was caused by physical node unhealthy.

    This should be a future of Azure China notifications
