  1. 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…

    • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

              The current Azure offer in the "Your Academic Institution" version of "Microsoft Imagine" is difficult to follow. Please check it, test it, and make it clearer.

                    • Allow instructors to use multiple AzurePass subscriptions

                      I am an instructor who wants to be able to use Azure in several classes in our program to promote learning. It has come to my attention that to activate a new Azure pass subscription, you have to have a new email address. Apparently you cannot apply a new AzureU subscription to an existing account.

                      I am, therefore, concerned:

                      First: I will have to rebuild my class infrastructure each time my subscription needs to be refreshed.
                      Second: I will have to approach my institution for a new email address each year.
                      Three: Or I can use a special (concocted) public…

                        • Provide very simple email account service

                          Moving to Azure from other web-host - I need very simple email service to receive and occasionally reply to small # (<100) messages per month. This was built-in support from webhosting company I'm trying to move from. Don't need spam engine api (SendGrid), and setting up VM manually seems like overkill. (provide a blog on this?)

                              • Last 4 digits of credit card on invoice

                                If Azure invoices are being paid automatically from a credit card, the last 4 digits of that card should appear on each invoice. I manage an Azure account for my company; service charges are billed to my personal card, and I submit a monthly expense report. Company rules require that all expenses charged to a credit card must have the receipt with a credit card number. Because there is no credit card number on the Azure statements, I have to print out my credit card statement to prove that I used my card to pay for the monthly Azure charge.

                                • Make Azure more available and affordable to Office365 Home Subscribers

                                  Azure offered a 30 day Trial (too short) in which I had no time to finish the on-line course. To make Azure more attractive and more users to join and to learn how to use it properly with proper training is to offer to Office365 Home subscribers perpetual limited system time.
                                  .
                                  How could this work:
                                  .
                                  Office365 offers 5 licenses, 60 min Skype and 1TB Disk Space.
                                  Azure could be offered to only 1 of the users to try and train as long as the Office365 subscription is paid.
                                  So for example there would be a 60 day Azure…

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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!
