  1. 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!

  2. Azure VPN Client for MacOS

    Azure VPN Client for MacOS

    It's known that MacOS is a very commonly adopted OS in certain areas.
    For example in development.

    Developers who work in Azure infra for their customers should have the possibility to have a client like this and all the features that come along with it (simple MFA configuration for example)

  3. Log Search Alert Status Tracking

    Currently log search alert trigger an alert on every single run they match the condition.

    Operator gets spammed with the same failure messages.
    The first, single message is fully enough. We don't need repeating messages (whatever set in actions).

    Then we need a service recovery message, once the issue is cleared.

  4. 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.

  5. Shock the Australian IT industry...

    ... with amazingly unprecedented pricing for new Azure services opening up to Australia in 2014, and revolutionise the way the Australian market bills for bandwidth and top quality hosting services.

  6. Increase VSO free build minutes per month

    Currently, we get 60 minutes for free, but they are easily consumed in our case because we have a gated check-in policy that allows check-ins only if the build is successful. So every time we check something in, we have to build the server.

  7. VM with GPU !and! NVME storage

    we badly need VMs that offer both, a GPU (nvidia is preferred)
    AND high IOPS NVME storage! Currently - Azure offers either or.

    Please combine e.g. the NVME-powered L8s_v2 VMs with a Nvidia GPU or add NVME storage to the ND/NV line VM types.

    This is urgently needed for various scenarios and business use-cases!

  9. Reconsider first level Translator pricing

    For the Microsoft Bing Translator service, the first jump from free tier is to $40 (flat minimum). I have to say that an increment of $40 for the very first paid level, and always charged whether I use it or not, and even if I'm under the free level, compares very poorly with the Google Translation service, which does not have a free level but charges partial subscription fees based on actual usage levels. So there's no jump from $0 to $40 to $60 for Google, even if it's not used, instead it might be $1 or $15 or $45…

  10. Create Azure App Service Plan V3

    Premium app service plans are still running on Dv2 series compute. Dv3 series have been available for a while.
    We could use a boost in computing power.
    It would be amazing to have the D8s v3 available out of the box also (8 cores, 32GiB RAM). Not all apps scale out well!
    And we don't want to use Virtual Machines if we can avoid it.

    Any timeline on those developments?

  11. Increase Monitor Alert limitation in each subscription

    Below see this page.
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/monitor/

    The number of Alert limitation is 100 in one subscription.
    But customer wants to use more alert by Azure Monitor for Metric.
    Customer know they can request to mitigate the limitation.
    But when they want to configure Azure Metric Alert, every time they don't want to request to Microsoft for mitigation.
    Customer is not familiar with Azure, and it is so many cost.

    Could you increase the number of limitation?

  12. Add metadata tag feature of intent for LUIS

    Please add support for metadata tags to improve predictive quality of intent detection for LUIS.
    In case QnA Maker's Generate Answer API, it supports metadata tag to refine search the appropriate answer with eary way. If LUIS also supports it then I believe user will be able to obtain intended response from single app more easier way.

  13. Add IOPS and disk type information to storage metadata service

    As explained here

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/instance-metadata-service#storage-metadata

    you can already get some information like caching and storageAccountType. Now it would be great to add IOPS and disk type like P6, E12 to it.
    For Ultra SSD add Throughput value as well.

    Use case: For SAP Hana you need to stripe over multiple disks:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/workloads/sap/hana-vm-operations-storage

    /hana/log and /hana/shared you need to use different storage types.

    Assume we create volume groups in the logical volume manager in Linux, which contains the name and iops in its name.

    Example: We can name the VG UltraSSDLRS1205 and an Administrator of the System will know

  14. Include the option to change Virtual Network in the Web Interface

    Please offer the ease of changing a virtual network on a virtual VM, just like we can with VMM or Hyper-V. For stability reasons this should only be limited to connect to different virtual networks in stead of the default value of the dropdown with affinity groups, networks and regions...

  15. application gateway weight based traffic distribution

    Currently per AppGw design, it supports only round-robin traffic distribution.

    However, customer may need a weight setting on AppGw which can control the traffic ratio to be distributed to backend servers, like weight routing method on Traffic Manager.

    Please consider to add this funcion in the future release.

  16. Set Kusto tab title

    it will be very helpful to be able to set the tab title. when working with multiple tabs it is not a good user experience to use Ctrl+Tab to switch tabs and look for the right tab.

  17. Student accounts are very limited.

    Student accounts are very limited. They are designed to develop applications and host them, but forget the possibility of incorporating virtual machines and test the universe of the big data.

  18. 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.

  19. Allow access from trusted microsoft services one by one

    When configuring firewall for use with Azure Storage resources,
    and trying to allow access from "Trusted Microsoft Services", we only have to allow access from all of them, not a "Trusted Microsoft service " one by one.
    I think that It's better to allow access one by one on the security's perspective - allowing only necessary access from PaaS services in terms of system design.

  20. Allow Startup Owners to configure Bizspark credits among their team members.

    Microsoft's Bizspark idea is an wonderful concept to support new start-ups. I had the opportunity of talking to a support guy who had given me the details of the offer. But I have a slight difference on the subject. Now Microsoft wants that more users be members of the program where by each organization can have 5 members each given a $150 credit. But first point here is most of the members may not need that kind of a credit. Second the start-up as a whole which wants to have a production server to host their website. Then in that…
