  1. Allow free trail extension for people taking MS training or learning

    Beyond 30days. Allow free trail for those learning Azure via online training, ex openedX. Additionally, allow capped Azure accounts for continued learning, example developing a project. Capped meaning it is limited to an amount of services per month.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Import bacpac locally should be 1 click experience

    If one wants to create a copy of a deployed database on his local Sql Server 2014 he needs to be prepared for quite a process described here -

    http://sql-articles.com/articles/azure/issues-restoring-sql-azure-bacpac-due-to-querystorestalequerythreshold/

    But this MUST be a 1 click experience!

  5. Windows Azure for studying and testing purposes

    I'm IT Professional, I'd like to use Windows Azure for studying and testing purposes: as private person, this helps me to increase my knowledge on Microsoft Cloud Platform. I already used Trial Period but it isn't enough. I'm asking if there is a way to pay little fixed yearly fee for this purpose only ?

  6. About setting up an on-premises data gateway

    The on-premises data gateway is created in the default directory used for sign-in, but I want you to be able to select the directory created during on-premises data gateway setup.

  7. Allow to select the products on the "Azure Services by Region" Chart

    It would be extremely useful in planning for either usage of Azure features or for where to actually deploy them to be able to select some of the products and then see [only] the regions where it is available.

    At the moment, all the features are listed, but to build up the matrix across the US, EU and Asia is really hard.

  8. 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.

  9. Free support on basic functionalities

    We are currently experiencing major issues with our server as we are unable to push new code or even look at the logs or change diagnostics issues and we cannot use the deployments at all since they just don't work (we've followed the instructions given by azure and it just throws authorization exceptions all the time).

    Also we just bought a support plan (which we shouldn't have for these kinds of issues as it is caused by the migration which was nearly forced upon us) and it clearly states that we will get a initial response within 8 hours, after…

  13. Buy/Take control of VAWLT (or other multi-cloud systems)

    I think Microsoft should buy or take control of VAWLT (https://vawlt.io/) or other similar multi-cloud systems. These systems open the cloud to everyone (no more concerns about security of a specific cloud provider).
    VAWLT is based on "SCFS: a Shared Cloud-backed File System" USENIX’14 research paper (https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/atc14/atc14-paper-bessani.pdf).
    It works by only storing ciphered data on the cloud and this data is also distributed among many cloud providers. It may be a more expensive solution, but it is the best solution available for industries which cannot rely on the cloud to store their data at the moment.

  14. Sorry page use in ALB or APPGW

    I want to use sorry page in ALB or APPGW.

    If ALB can use weight policy for load balance, I can provide sorry page in my system.
    Now, I can use weight policy only in Traffic Manager.

    I hope other product have same feature.

  15. Allow use of Azure IoT Hub for Imagine Students

    Me as a student, do not have any credit card (and can't buy one) to upgrade my subscription for making use of Azure IoT Hub. Is it possible to make IoT hub available for Imagine students or at least, make a limited edition of IoT hub available?

  17. Provide a free tier like AWS - Until then Azure is quite simply too expensive for a lesser product / platform.

    We are an MS shop however we use AWS why? because Azure is too expensive to learn and operate and has less feature / scale etc. However we would like to use Azure at some point but realistically it is simply to pricey to be worth the effort.
    ~$200 credits on sign up is a joke - please get serious and allow a free tier where you could actually host a very small system and test out the Azure platform - not just a few minutes of cpu time, developers need a genuine micro server / app platform.

    For us…

  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. Downloading from Microsoft Container Registry is extremely slow in China

    We have been experiencing extremely slow downloading speed from Microsoft Container Registry (MCR) in China for months.

    Aliyun or Docker CN have docker mirrors in China so we are OK to download public docker images, after Microsoft migrated all their docker images back to MCR we encountered countless issues downloading Microsoft docker images like dotnet core sdk or asp.net core sdk due to the slow downloading speed, and we are talking about 10MB/hour download speed which is unacceptable.

    I understand Microsoft tries to use MCR to centrally manage all MSFT's docker images and that is a great intention, but lacking…
