  1. Binaries building and hosting for Open Source projects

    In Nodejs world, building native binaries for several platforms using node-gyp and wrapping it with nodejs wrapper is getting popular.
    Case in hand is node-sass, a wrapper around libsass, which builds and host its binaries on GitHub, which happen to be a not very viable solution. See https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/504 and https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/535.

    It would be nice if Windows Azure team shed some love towards open source community and provide building binaries on multiple platforms (Windows, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, FreeBSD and Mac) and hosting them for free of cost.

    On a related note, it would be great if Microsoft consider building…

  2. Offer a Visual Studio Online Advanced Plan W/ VS Ultimate IDE (like Professional)

    Many organizations would likely pay a premium monthly fee to get a license for the Ultimate edition of Visual Studio in the same way that a Professional license is offered with VSO. At the heart of "only pay for what you use" this would be a great service as many developers do not need Ultimate for the entirety of their projects, so a $13,000 expense is not justified. This would essentially be the Advanced VSO offering, but would include a monthly license to the VS Ultimate client IDE as well.

  4. Enable storage of secret keys for Websites

    For encryption purposes, it would be great to store keys within Azure securely. Key/value pairs in Config are viewable by anyone logged into the portal, and x509 certs (which apparently are hidden once uploaded) are not available for Websites (only Cloud sites).

  5. 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.

  6. Add the xtra small standard website instance, and make the pricing very aggressive

    Currently, Standard Websites are only available as Small, Medium, and Large VM instances. For a company just starting out, the free plan isn't going to be used, for fear one would hit the limit and have interruptions of service.
    The Small plan, at approximately $75/month, is a bit pricey, but is necessary to get out of the problems that shared websites can have.
    An extra small instance could fill a gap there, allowing one to get out of shared plans, but at the same time, fitting nicely in the business plan before upgrading to a small instance.

    -thanks

  9. figure out a way to join/merge offerings

    I have a "free" Azure via my Action pack and I have purchased credits via Open as these are 2 "offerings" they are treated by M/S as separate and cannot be linked - there cannot be a technical reason why these 2 offerings need to be separate and it complicates my management of your cloud offering

  10. Allow adding new subsciption to an Azure account using PowerShell

    Add new Cmdlets Add-Subscription, Delete-Subscription, etc. so that we can automate the creation of subscriptions in an existing Azure account.

  12. send a notification per mail incase a website backup fails.

    right now, one needs to manually check the portal to detect failed backups.

  19. Add country/state name to the locations list

    Please add the country or state to the locations list when you set up a new virtual machine. For example, Europe is very confusing since Ireland is North Europe and The Netherlands is West Europe (Ireland is more west than The Netherlands). It's the same for East US 1 & 2 which can be confusing
