    • 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.

        • 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…

          • <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。

            • Change directory of CSP subscriptions.

              If a customer has a tenant/subscription with the same partner who has the other tenant, you should allow the partner to do the transfer of directory.

                            • 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.

                                Communicate VM installing Windows updates to Azure portal so that as a user I can tell the difference between a VM being unresponsive due to being broken or just being busy with installing updates.
                                Currently there is no way to tell the difference which might lead to users unnecessarily submit support tickets for their VMs being stuck in the Starting stage.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Why are Free Trials tied to bank card??? And is it even legal (in Europe)???

                                        Free Trial accounts appear to be linked to the bank card used in the subscription -- why a bank card is required for a free subscription is absurd and I even wonder how legal (under European law).

                                        But once a bank card was used for a Free Trial that bank card is "black-listed" from Free Trial subscriptions for 12-months.

                                        Even not thinking about the legal/privacy implications of of that, I've previously used a Free Trial to evaluate some Azure features and now wanted to evaluate Notification Hubs -- not allowed because I'm using the same bank card. It's a different…

                                        • 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.
