  1. We want to build a platform that will allow cloud providers to auction their surplus VMs

    We think that in future all cloud providers will have excess capacity that can be auctioned to users. We are contacting other cloud providers for it.
    We want to build a site that will allow users to bid and participate on that auctional

    • Develop clear documentation describing the Azure Dev Test offer and its relationship to Enterprise Agreements and Visual Studio subscription

      I have recently worked with Azure Technical support to get a clear an unambiguous answer to the question: Can Visual Studio account credits (obtained as part of the Visual Studio subscription) be utilized in an Enterprise Agreement enrollment.

      After significant efforts on the part of the Azure Support Analyst, several documentation web sites and technical bulletin board entries were identified that show the answer to be "No." Unfortunately, when I try to prepare a communication with my executive management on this topic, I do not have a definitive "No." Answer from Microsoft. This question is clearly being asked a lot…

      • Eviction policy on blob store

        Please add support to be able to maintain the blob store capacity
        we need an eviction policy to delete lets say x days of unused blobs
        also, would be great if this can be integrated with the alerts system so when an alert for say a capacity is breached this eviction policy also triggers with a param for days set by the alert.

        as for now there is a powershell script and not an integrated solution, and the script literally itrates over all the blobs in the storage

        • Any Azure Subscription to CSP

          Moving a subscription (PAYG, EA, etc.) to CSP umbrella is a cumbersome task. Microsoft support is either hesitant or is not ready in helping this transition of offers.
          Technically this document says how to --> https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/hybridcloudbp/2016/08/26/azure-subscription-migration-to-csp/

          But there is no luck for the people who really don't understand Azure AD tenant and its relation to the subscription.

          Microsoft is increasing the CSP partner base in FY18 and it makes sense to have support provided by MS on this transition.

          Technically, CSPs are looking for a way to migrate existing subscription to CSP with a click of a button. No one…

          • Change pricing options

            Azure DTU based pricing alone prevented me to select Azure cloud service for our company even we are .net shop. Different applications have different load on cpu, memory and disk io. Trying to fit them into DTU is stupid.

              I think Azure need to support intellisense of MS Sql.. It's not one of "nice to have" things. I think it kind of 'must to have'

              • Container Instances Pricing

                The Container Instances Pricing is incorrect (or confusing).

                In the Pricing Details table the cores price is "$0.001 Core per second".
                But in the section "Core Duration" a different value is reported:

                Core Duration

                Core duration is calculated from the time your container begins executing until it terminates. The price depends on the number of cores you allocate to your container instance. You are charged $0.000013 for every Core-s used. You can allocate up to four cores to each instance you deploy.

                Additionally the examples does not seem right also. In the the first example:

                [...]

                Core Duration:

                  • Offer Azure Container Services for Microsoft Azure Germany region (whatelse is the point of modern cloud services really?)

                    Offer Azure Container Services for Microsoft Azure Germany region. Not offering it makes the Germany region semi-useless, since most modern applications come packaged as containers due to the obvious advantages of deployment and better scaling with micro service granularity.

                    • Don't charge for components based on calendar time. Such a billing policy is enough to make me turn to Amazon or Google instead.

                      Charging for Event Hubs while not in use is just absurd and obnoxious. I won't extend my trial account because of this.

                      • Holding 2 items with Ctrl+C

                        Windows can hold 2 items with Ctrl+C instead of one.

                        Problem:
                        When i use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V successively, i accidentaly press Ctrl+C, Ctrl+C while i select the thing which i want to change. It makes me depressed.

                        Solution:
                        If windows hold last selected 2 items with Ctrl+C, i can past old one with for example Ctrl+2+V. Then i can gain so much wasted time.

                                    • Add support for Spark activity with on-demand HDInsight cluster in Azure Data Factory

                                      Hive activity, Mapreduce activity and Pig activity all support on-demand HDInsight cluster, but not Spark Activity.

                                      We extensively use Spark in our data stack and being able to run Spark batch jobs on demand would tremendously improve our workflow.

                                      Please add Spark job submission using on-demand Hadoop cluster in Data Factory.

                                      • Allow potential clients access to more cores

                                        The machines available on a test or trial basis were simply too weak and thus I couldn't test my actual workflow. A pity, because maybe Azure would be a viable option for my company - but without the option to perform realistic tests, I'll never know.
