  1. Docker PaaS

    It would be great if I could deploy docker images without having to worry about setting up Docker hosts.

  3. Make Azure Dependency Agent compatible with Oracle Linux Marketplace Images

    Azure Dependency Agent is a very useful tool and it would be a great addition to make it compatible with Oracle Linux (7.2.0+ in our specific case) images available through the Marketplace.

  4. Stop with ridicilous price increases

    First decomissioning of low priced features and replacing them with much more expensive ones (e.g. SQL Azure x10 price for same prior performance!), and now another 22% price hike across-the-board. Thanks MS - do you actually want customers? And all this whilst Google and Amazon keep reducing prices!

  5. Add support for nested virtualization

    Add support for nested virtualization in Azure VMs. That way developers could test Linux Docker containers on Windows.

  6. azure is getting too expensive

    I am noticing more and more rivals are offer more for less. WordPress users have had it rough with no database for a long time. While that is slowly changing, its way too slow.

    Time to realize that Azure not an island, the world is very competitive.

  10. Allow non Administrators to run Azure P2S VPN client

    We would like to have the possibility to allow users who are not members of the local "Administrators" group of workstations to connect to the VPN, without having the need to give them those privileges.

  12. Billing - Make it Clear

    Make Azure Bills clear on the Microsoft Billing Hub: https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders#/

    The Azure subscriptions are listed by the Offer Name. It was very confusing to understand why I was being billed random amounts for Visual Studio Subscription. Also, add the Azure Invoice number so I can match things up.

  13. MSDN Non-Production Azure Subscription

    I think it would be good to add a 'Dev/non-production' environment that would have a higher credit amount for developers to use to POCs and Testing.

    Most of my Partner coworkers only have $50 allotted for MSDN Professional and $150 for Enterprise.

    If we are interested in trying out all the Azure features (i.e. IoT, HDInsight, etc.) we are limited by the $150 amount even though we are not creating production things.

  14. Application Insights multiple environment feature

    Add possibility to create under one Application Insights more environments (every environment could have own instrumentation key). The main reason is the clarity and the ability to compare the environment.


    • MyWebsiteAppInsights


      • production

      • stage

      • dev



    • Another Insights


      • production

      • local

  15. Within the Performance area of SQL Databases, could you show Blocking Queries?

    I see a lot of good tips and tricks in the Performance Overview section of SQL Databases. Could you please show a list of Blocking Queries, whether it be Real Time, Historical, and/or Top #?

  16. Support JSON schema style $ref components in templates

    Idempotent JSON based resource manager templates are a great idea. However, sophisticated deployments use numerous sub-components over and over. JSON schema understands this is a requirement for building real world JSON where elements repeat in different places, and has a $ref mechanism - like the variables and parameters, but a way to define a JSON object and use it elsewhere, repeatedly.

    This would allow, for example, a security rule to be defined in one place, and used in several NSGs.

    Consider, for example, a classic three tier DMZ, App Server and DB Server Zone, implemented with NSGs. The zones clearly…

  17. Allow students to deploy virtual machines for free (to an extent)

    I believe that students should have the ability to use higher level features, like deploying virtual machines and document storage systems for free to a point.
    You could restrict it to allowing a limited number of machines overall, and force them to be in a specific pricing block, like the lowest tier. A similar system could be applied to document storage systems.
    This would allow students to deploy systems in a test environment and practice configuring them in a system where they could access it at any given time. And not be restricted to hardware that they have laying around.

  18. Create an application or Tool for Migrating users from Azure AD to Local AD

    There should be an option that allow us to import users from Azure with all their attributes and write them back in a local environment. I can bet their have been businesses that for some reason, lost their Local environment (a malware attack), and would like to re-create the environment using what Azure Stored for them

  19. Recovery Services needs a way to migrate to a new vCenter

    We recently ran into a situation where we upgraded our on-prem vCenter by standing up a new server and migrating resources to that. However after doing so we discovered that it is not possible to "migrate" systems replicated in Recovery services to that new server. Instead we have to delete them and then re-replicate from scratch.

    Having a way to update a replicated system in recovery services, changing it from one vCenter server to another would be extremely helpful!

  20. Clearly indicate when the customer is committing to pay

    I was charged a third-party service fee during a free trial. While I don't object to paying for the software, I was surprised by the charge, because the Azure console did not explain clearly I was committing to an ongoing fee and ask approval for that charge.

    Azure needs to be transparent in pricing, including Azure fees and third-party fees to assess the true TCO for a cloud service. Show a complete fee schedule for the configuration and allow a review and Accept Transaction step before charging a customer.
