  1. Include billing rate and total charged amounts to Azure usage for Azure In Open subscriptions

    When paying by credit card, you can receive an invoice that shows the total charge for usage during a given month, as well as a breakdown of what was used and how much was consumed. When using an Azure in Open subscription you don't see a calculation of how many credits have been consumed, which is important for recording usage to clients.

  2. Offer a free tier that is meaningful such as Amazon offers for its CDN. AWS Free Tier includes 50GB data transfer out.

    Offer a free tier that is meaningful such as Amazon offers for its CDN. AWS Free Tier includes 50GB data transfer out. I would be comfortable creating something for a client knowing that I could perfect the product until it hit the market and not worrying about when the trial expires. Also, some products do not take off, and this would inspire me to take a chance.

  3. Support for BYOL on pre-built VM Images

    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.

  7. Allow to use UDF(user defined function) inside a DocumentDB's Stored Procedure

    In DocumentDB, It would be very helpful if the SP could use a UDF, so the code will be in one place and more organised.

  8. one word custom domain registration, welcome page management

    I should be able to add a custom domain name registration, then I should be able to manage the welcome page, what is happening, is during free trial everythings seems so easy, but going to production or buying services, it is just not user friendly or foolproof for a novice web developer to understand, each and every thing, there is no step by step instructions, of what needs to be done or help readily available for some to simply put a web page on azure, with a custom domain name. What to do next? Once, when I put a custom…

  9. Make it clear what the charges will be for a 'marketplace' purchase instead of a general warning

    I recently used the HDP Sandbox and it took a few hours to find out what the charges would be, even though I already had an MSDN subscription. I was concerned that I would be charged extra and contacted Azure support. If I had been given a link to better information when I created the VM it would have saved me contacting support.

  10. Improve pricing transparency (MSDN)

    At the moment, MSDN subscribers get discounted rates for things like VM's and App Service instances. In the portal it's not clear that the rates shown are discount rates. This can lead to confusion when a development team is asked to deliver an estimation on the cost of a solution.

    My proposal would be to have a clear indication of the fact that the rates shown are discounted. For instance by showing both (normal + discounted) or by having a tooltip to explain that the rates are discounted and for other subscriptions the rate is higher. Assuming that in normal…

  16. AD pricing for small busnisses <25 users

    Our company was utilizing Windows Small Business Server with Exchange.
    I was looking to migrate the Active Directory to Azure, Files services to VM and Exchange to Office 365.
    Technically it is possible.
    Unfortunatelly pricing for AD : https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/active-directory-ds/.
    which goes to around 65EUR/month, Virtual machine with Windows 2012 for another 70EUR, Site-To-Site VPN for 35 EUR/month and office365 licenses which goes again to 70EUR it is in total already a high price.

    I will appreciate to see AD integration with price around 10-15EUR per month. This will make sense for me as a replacement for SBS.

    Now I…

  20. Allow instructors to use multiple AzurePass subscriptions

    I am an instructor who wants to be able to use Azure in several classes in our program to promote learning. It has come to my attention that to activate a new Azure pass subscription, you have to have a new email address. Apparently you cannot apply a new AzureU subscription to an existing account.

    I am, therefore, concerned:

    First: I will have to rebuild my class infrastructure each time my subscription needs to be refreshed.
    Second: I will have to approach my institution for a new email address each year.
    Three: Or I can use a special (concocted) public…
