  3. Improve Free/Trial/Entry level offers

    Azure is prohibitively expensive for small businesses and new/poor developers.

    £150 for 30 days is not long enough to get up and running and to make a viable website/app to cover the costs.

    Suggestions:
    -Allow users to use the free credits over 12 or 6 or even 3 months.
    -Or return to your previous offer with free monthly credits for a year.
    -Or offer SSL on the shared plan. (sites without SSL are not an option)

    £50-£60/pm for a basic website with custom domain and SSL is ridiculous.

    I feel my only option is to abandon Azure and look at…

  6. Please open a French Azure Datacenter

    France has many laws regarding datas security, and in some sector like healthcare, it's impossible to host stuff outside of France.

    I'd be a very good news for us that Microsoft could open a datacenter in France :)

  8. 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.

  10. About specification that co-administrator is removed when Subscription Ownership Transfer

    When Subscription Ownership Transfer is executed, A Service Administrator will also be changed to the destination account and a Co-Administrator is removed.

    It may happen in the case of the destination account is already registered as one of the Co-Administrators, because a single account cannot be registered as both a Service Administrator and a Co-Administrator.

    I request an additional option which gives a source account administrator to leave the co-administrator setting or not.

  11. Add a SQL Server database in the DreamSpark subscription

    I beleive including a free SQL Database (MSSQL) to the DreamSpark subscription will be greatly beneficial in the education process of many students. Having a reliable MSSQL Server that can be used for learning SQL Server is very important. There's a MySQL database included in the subscription, but I believe having experience in at least two flavors of SQL is a lot better for students, especially TSQL if they intend to work with Microsoft technologies in the future.

  12. Expend search criteria to more them 50 users

    When adding users to an Enterprise Application, the search only shows the first 50 result. I would suggest that this gets expended, as it a pain, if you have more then that.

  14. 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…

  15. Stop with ridicilous price increases

    First decomissioning of low priced features and replacing them with much more expensive ones (e.g. SQL Azure x10 price for same prior performance!), and now another 22% price hike across-the-board. Thanks MS - do you actually want customers? And all this whilst Google and Amazon keep reducing prices!

  16. Allow students to deploy virtual machines for free (to an extent)

    I believe that students should have the ability to use higher level features, like deploying virtual machines and document storage systems for free to a point.
    You could restrict it to allowing a limited number of machines overall, and force them to be in a specific pricing block, like the lowest tier. A similar system could be applied to document storage systems.
    This would allow students to deploy systems in a test environment and practice configuring them in a system where they could access it at any given time. And not be restricted to hardware that they have laying around.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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?
