  1. Add support for nested virtualization

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

  2. 30 days trial is too short for exploring the wast feature set of Azure, it should be based on some cost based on what features get used

    It's like the way you do now without the time limit. Give me the credit and give me the time to use it. As a developer, I need time to get to explore the features.

  3. One year free trail

    The free trail is so short to try build cloud base service, and for sure it's not good idea to pay money while development

  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.

  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. Offer Custom SQL Database Tiers

    Offer the ability to customize a SQL Database Tier. For example, I have 500 clients that are migrating to the cloud. Azure is great. Each client only needs the S1 Tier. Except 250GB is not nearly enough space. My clients need at least 2TB and this feature should charge per GB like SQL storage does.

  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. policy for tags enumeration

    Set a policy, that only certain values are allowed on a specific tag.
    For instance, if you set the tag: "Environment", you can only set the values "Dev" or "Prod" nothing else will be accepted. (An enumeration of unlimited numbers please)

    If a tag is needed in the Azure Portal (UI) Then an combobox (drop down) should be presented.

  13. Invoicing for Azure MarketPlace solutions

    We need to get invoices from Azure Marketplace’s 3rd party solutions. (country=Turkey) Currently, we couldn't have reached the invoice from Azure portal or any other place (https://account.microsoft.comhttps://commerce.microsoft.com).

    The invoices are required for tax reasons. If we couldn't get invoices from Azure Marketplace, our tax department asked us to buy those solutions from on-prem.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. <Request>App service plan Increase storage size and add

    To increase the size of the App service plans storage and add it, you need to scale up the App App plan, but you need a function to add more storage by adding more storage than the scale up.

    <In Japanese>
    Appサービスプランストレージのサイズを増やして追加するには、App Appプランをスケールアップする必要がありますが、スケールアップよりもストレージを追加してストレージを追加する機能を実装要望します。

  17. 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.

  19. Upgrade the free Windows VM from B1S to B2S

    The 12 months free 750 hours of Azure B1S General Purpose Virtual Machines for Microsoft Windows Server is too small. I would strongly recommend providing at least B2S virtual machine for 750 hours Windows Server.
