  1. Offer an ACTUALLY free program for INDIVIDUAL students without credit card

    There was a question about this but it was closed several days ago. I know there is windowsazure pass but that is only for educators. It would be awesome if you can just verify your student identity (Like in Dreamspark) and then get serveral websites for free.

        • Address the "Snowden/NSA" issues in every territory in a visible and concrete manner

          Let developers and consultants configure where certain data is stored (geographically) and also verify that it is really stored in the given location and does not cross international boundaries at any time. This is important for most companies since they are bound by compliance regulations, insurance, and legal best-practices that require this granularity for particular type of data.

          • WAF on Application Gateway have a function to allow some exceptional access for prevention mode

            It would be great if WAF on Application Gateway have a function to allow some exceptional access for prevention mode.

            Now, Web Application Firewall feature would be available as part of Azure Application Gateway.

            Currently, WAF on Application Gateway seems to not have a function to exclude from blocking access by any condition.
            So, I would like to request to add this function for WAF on Application Gateway.

              • Support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI

                Please support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI. Currently we have to make incredibly manual slicers for it, or else download the data via powershell, programmatic split the Tags into individual fields, and then reupload the data to be analyzed separately, instead of being able to do this straight out of BI.

                  • Allow VNet Peering between ASM and ARM with different subscriptions

                    Currently, when VNet Peering between virtual network in resource manager model and classic deployment model, the same supscription for the VNets are reqired.
                    I hope we can freely configure VNet Peering between ASM and ARM with different subscriptions in the near future.

                    • allow setting spending limit on any account type

                      I cannot afford to have a runaway process or a mistake in the Azure portal to generate a huge bill for me.

                      Many of the special offers that give Azure credits come with a spending limit of $0.00 such that when your credit is used up, your account is temporarily disabled until your credits are refreshed.

                      However, you can only remove the spending limit. You cannot change it to a higher level.

                      Also, Pay as you Go accounts cannot have a spending limit either.

                      It would be extremely useful to be able to set a spending limit on Pay as…

                          When I want to create a SQL Server VM in Azure and use a license I already own (Bring Your Own License) I am unable to use an existing VM Image in Azure as these are pre-licensed. It would be good if I could use an existing VM image and supply just my license key.

                          • Please open a French Azure Datacenter

                            France has many laws regarding datas security, and in some sector like healthcare, it's impossible to host stuff outside of France.

                            I'd be a very good news for us that Microsoft could open a datacenter in France :)

                                  • Introduce a free tier like AWS for better learning. One month trial is too short.

                                    Azure has many options so that trying out and learning how to work different scenarios is quite involved. There is a lot to learn and one month is not enough, especially as it is unlikely that someone can dedicate a full time month to Azure. Personally, I can't be bothered to try Azure for just 30 days - what's the point? It took me several months of occasional sessions to get the full hang of AWS. I am sure Azure is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but for the time being, I will stick with what works for me,…

                                    • About specification that co-administrator is removed when Subscription Ownership Transfer

                                      When Subscription Ownership Transfer is executed, A Service Administrator will also be changed to the destination account and a Co-Administrator is removed.

                                      It may happen in the case of the destination account is already registered as one of the Co-Administrators, because a single account cannot be registered as both a Service Administrator and a Co-Administrator.

                                      I request an additional option which gives a source account administrator to leave the co-administrator setting or not.

                                      • Add option to pool all five accounts for BizSpark into a single account of USD 750 / month. This is crucial for Startups.

                                        Jumping between accounts is not a practical way to manage the BizSpark credit spending. Please provide this ability to pool all together in a single USD 750 /month credit. As our startup is scaling up USD 150 / month gets used up rapidly and cause service to go down.

                                        • Add a SQL Server database in the DreamSpark subscription

                                          I beleive including a free SQL Database (MSSQL) to the DreamSpark subscription will be greatly beneficial in the education process of many students. Having a reliable MSSQL Server that can be used for learning SQL Server is very important. There's a MySQL database included in the subscription, but I believe having experience in at least two flavors of SQL is a lot better for students, especially TSQL if they intend to work with Microsoft technologies in the future.
