  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Start Free (Free Trial Signup)

    I tried Start Free trial and it surprised me twice as the error page came twice after signup.

    I have used Yahoo email and after signup it went to live.com and got message saying, "live.com" not available.

  5. Users would like to control the InstanceIds of VMSS

    Each instances of VMSS(Virtual Machine Scale Set) has a instance id. This id is used as the host name of each instance. And this number is provided as serial numbers. I'd like to control this number.
    E.g. initiliatize this serial number's countup. and so on

  9. Update App Service Pricing

    In App Service plans say that a D1-Shared cost "~€0.011 per site per hour" but apparently all the other plans are also charged "per site per hour" and not per instance. This is misleading and it just become clear when we are in hands with a bill higher than expected (eg: 150€ to host 3 simple sites) this pricing seems a bit odd as it becomes exponential more expensive than a simple VM doing the same job (VM ~50€, AppService ~50€ per site).

  10. Create a tier that only charges for CPU cycles used, not idle cycles

    Many instances are mostly idle; and surely your underlying VM technology can use those idle cycles for running other people's jobs.

    Instead of charging for the idle CPU cycles, create a pricing tier that charges more for CPU cycles that are actually used, and less for ones where machines are idle.

    This would be useful for very bursty workloads.

  11. 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.

  14. 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?

  15. create D0 and D0.5 optimised compute pricing steping stones

    We have a lot of users signing up to our service daily and are struggling with processes that can time-out on the A0 or A1 cloud services on azure due to the CPU performance.

    We only need 768mb of ram so going to an A1 actually is not that cost efficient for us, and certainty an A2 is definitely not effective - basically we need to scale out to many small, but fast instances.

    The D1 series CPU's are 60% faster but also have SSD plus more disk and ram than we nee, and (I assume) aren't core shared. These…

  16. Allow to use UDF(user defined function) inside a DocumentDB's Stored Procedure

    In DocumentDB, It would be very helpful if the SP could use a UDF, so the code will be in one place and more organised.

  18. programatic access to pricing data.

    I would like to be able to ask what the price of azure service X is in location Y, using a script, or program, rather than having to surf to a web page.

    Thanks,
    David.

  19. 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.
