      Many Clients request that we have the DataBase in thee Country. It would be good to have this functionality added to the Geo-Replication and that we can select a Local DataBase. This would help with the country laws and also with BackUp. But...it should .synced with current data...

      • Fix link forwarding where there exists only en-us version

        From page http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/hh369930.aspx

        there is a link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=262845 to "Testing the Performance of an Azure Cloud Service Locally in the Compute Emulator Using the Visual Studio Profiler"

        After clicking it, it forwards me to http://www.windowsazure.com/cs-cz/develop/net/common-tasks/profiling-in-visual-studio/ but it does not exists. After changing cs-cz to en-us manually, everything works.

        Can you please fix link forwarding and fallback to en-us version where localized version is not available.

          • Add Grenada to the list of countries you provide service to

            I don't understand why Grenada is not listed but Trinidad and Tobago is. Trinidad is 10 miles from my country.

            • should offer a reduced pricing plan for non-commercial organizations

              Here in Germany the DPSG Muenster would like to use Azure as a public cloud service but the money for the IT is limited. So maybe you can offer a plan for non-commercial organizations that has a specific credit like the BizSpark program for developers.

              • AZURE Billing Problems are IMPOSSIBLE to resolve

                Please contact me ASAP.

                I am receiving bills for Azure service and have no login to control whatever servers are being billed for.
                I am not going to pay these bills.

                This is the 3rd time I've notified you of this.
                I've called and emailed.

                • Change how Database space alert works

                  It appears that the alert looks at the possible size, not the the actual current used space. This doesn't make much sense so maybe its just a bug, but if not you should change how that alert works.

                  • Build a data center in Lagos, Nigeria

                    Lagos is a coastal city, building a data center here will support the regional economies. It is nicely situated at the heart of Africa and can serve most of Africa. This will also play nicely with Microsoft's interests in on the continent.

                    • When sending emails about subscriptions please include the Subscription ID

                      You recently sent me an email about one of my subscriptions but there was no information about which one it was.
                      Can you please include the Subscription ID when emailing please? It would save time for your support staff as well as for users.

                      • open up the billing and costs what might follow...

                        I recently quitted my day job and started my own company. All these virtual machines and cloud computing stuff are very familiar, but from now, I have to pay from those as well. At the moment, I have been trying to enable Azure Backup and trying to get somekind of Virtual AD to work, but there is one big show stopper - I cannot find the price for these services.

                          • to form advisory committee for new startup with new ideas

                            Most of the startup companies get stuck at any point of time to move ahead in way of converting idea into reality. Microsoft must have one localized committee who have same domain knowledge and development experience to advise new startup's. On base on my experience, we have good startup of our ideas but from technical side and management side we are still learning things and doing research by downloading and testing tools which is time consuming and expensive. To built one prototype we must need some help and community is not enough for startup companies.

                            • Rest API to fetch ACL's for instances

                              Currently it seems like REST API's exist for Updating ACL's in endpoints, create endpoints and ACL's for an instance while creation. But no REST API exists for fetching ACL's.

                              It would be greatly appreciated if you could provide the REST API to fetch ACL's for instances.

                              • Pay more attention to existing services

                                I am happy to see new features/services coming up.

                                BUT Azure might strength too long and couldn't react to the feedback/needs quick enough for exiting feature/services.

                                Please review the backlog and actually clean up those planned or started items (either kill them or finish them, you know some of them planned 4 years ago or started 2 years ago). Keep opening up new items but not delivering the promises is not a good thing for us.

                                  • Why no datacenters in Middle East and Africa?

                                    Hi Microsoft,
                                    I can’t help thinking that Microsoft is pursuing some sort of imperialist western agenda with the deployment of its worldwide Azure Datacenters! As an independent software developer based here in Dubai with clients right across Africa, The Middle East and the Sub-continent we currently have the choice of hosting in Western Europe (Amsterdam) which is between 6500km and 8000km away from our clients, or South East Asia (Singapore) 5000 to 11000kms away.
                                    Guys it is time to realize that there is 2/5's of the world’s population nearby - let’s see something proactive in terms of datacenter deployment, and…

                                    • Removal of vote limit on forum

                                      Currently, only ten vote is allowed for users to "improve the overall quality of ideas" and vote is not returned until "Once ideas I vote for are closed".
                                      On the other hand, there are feedback that has more than 600 votes and keep unclosed for 4 years (http://feedback.azure.com/forums/169397-cdn/suggestions/556307-ability-to-force-the-cdn-to-refresh-a-specific-blo ).
                                      I strongly suggest you should remove this ridiculous limit, or at least vote should be recovered after certain amount of time.

                                        It would be great to allow the user to set a default currency for Azure billing instead of only USD
