    • Create a template document for customers

      Hello Guys,

      1st of all I just want to say that you're doing great! I just heard about the new announcements and I’m very excited to get starting working with the new features.

      2nd of all I would like to suggest and request from you guys if you can create a template for customers just like the Azure calculator but as a document form, so they will be able to see the entire options they have in a more detailed view so they will be able to choose exactly what services they would like to have and use and then…

      • Make Azure available in Haiti

        Microsoft Azure should be available for developers and businesses in Haiti. This country lack of a power supply system you can rely on for business, so the cloud is our best options. Please consider adding Haiti in the list of supported countries while signing up for Microsoft Azure.

          • Address the "Snowden/NSA" issues in every territory in a visible and concrete manner

            Let developers and consultants configure where certain data is stored (geographically) and also verify that it is really stored in the given location and does not cross international boundaries at any time. This is important for most companies since they are bound by compliance regulations, insurance, and legal best-practices that require this granularity for particular type of data.

                • Allow e-mail unsubscribe

                  I have received three e-mails in one day from azure. One about downtime (I have no services right now), and two advertising features. None of these e-mails have unsubscribe buttons, and I cannot find a way to suppress them in the account page. All contact checkboxes are un-checked.

                  • Offer an ACTUALLY free program for INDIVIDUAL students without credit card

                    There was a question about this but it was closed several days ago. I know there is windowsazure pass but that is only for educators. It would be awesome if you can just verify your student identity (Like in Dreamspark) and then get serveral websites for free.

                      Would love to hear more on the kind of services you believe should be made available to students as part of this free offer.

                    • I suggest you fix your system so that it actually works. That would be a good start.

                      Frankly, Azure is unreliable - so much so that our staff has what we have come to cal the "Azure Yips". We actually cringe and look at the screen out of the corners of our eyes, so as to try and avoid a huge disappointment each time the system is down. It's really not a matter of making it "better". It's more a matter of either making it functional and reliable or simply making it "go away".

                        Can you provide some examples of things that you consider to be unstable in Azure?

                      • Small error on Oracle page

                        On http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/campaigns/oracle/ the images are out of sync with the text in the thumbnail views (e.g. the select oracle software thumbnail is not shown with the select software text)

                        • Permission set per Management Certificate

                          It would be great to be able to configure which of the management APIs a specific management certificate is allowed to use. Currently there is no real difference between certificates, so having multiple are of limited value.

                          If management certificates are treated as roles, then it would provide many configuration options and better security w.r.t. how certificates can be used.

                          I could for instance create a certificate that only allows existing virtual machines to be started, but nothing else and then deploy that with an application, to a perhaps-not-fully-secure environment, without the danger of allowing someone who gets hold of…

                            • I can't even sign up for a trial account because I live in the Cayman Islands.

                              Microsoft sucks. I am a Canadian. I live in the Cayman Islands. My Microsoft Account has it's region bound to Canada. My credit cards are in the Cayman Islands. I can't change my billing address. The trial page will only accept Canadian credit cards. I called a bunch of different Microsoft departments and have been given the run around non stop. Everyone just keeps passing the buck and no one knows what is going on. Good job on blocking out an entire country.

                                Windows Azure is commercially available in the following 84 countries, and this is not one of them. Learn more here: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/faq/

                                We are adding more countries as we can, but in the meantime if you wish to use the service in an unsupported country, you’ll need to use one of several third party providers which front the Azure Subscriptions for organizations in unsupported countries. Just keep in mind that those providers are not MSFT so perform due-diligence to make sure any vendor you select is reputable.

                                Thanks for understanding.

                                you should make azure available in Cambodia. I think there are some students or people want to explore and use it.

                                    • api reference between service and location status

                                      Right now I have to call hosted service, get the location then run over the RSS calls and filter through to see if the service/location had any issues. These two should be related and the value of a locations service issues but valid from inside the service call.

                                        • Allow easy donation of unused CPU cycles to cancer research, Folding@home, etc.

                                          I would like to easily 'donate' my unused CPU cycles towards a good cause, such as cancer research within the Folding@home project.

                                          Ideally this setting would be incorporated into the config of my worker roles, or within the Windows Azure portal.
