          • Fix your Cloud Pricing Calculator!!! It is currently USELESS

            Fix your Cloud Pricing Calculator.

            It currently is almost completely non-functional. To see what one should look like go look at the Amazon Web Services pricing calculator

            a) the slide bars without text input are horrific. I challenge you to try and figure out what a 3GB SQL server instance will cost you. Measure how many tries on the slider it takes to get it to be 3Gb

            b) you have a weird mix of services, features and details:
            --Web Sites are instances of a Web Worker
            -- Cloud Services mixes Web and Worker role instances and the SQL DB…

              • Add ability to mail bills or a billing administrator account. Office 365 and Azure bills are the most dysfunctional uninformative bills

                Microsoft really needs help in designing billing systems. I am sympathetic as in their entire history they never had a reason to bill retail customers. Invvoices generated through an ERP system are not the same thing as service bills tied to usage. Office 365 is terrible, but at least has a way of setting up a billing administrator that can view and download bills. Azure seems to have no parallel. I can't assign rights to just download and view bills to someone in accounting without giving them the ability to modify services. Plus the bills are hard to understand. sometimes…

                  Thanks for your feedback. We’re actively working on these enhancements:

                  1. A more flexible RBAC model for billing
                  2. Improved notification mechanisms in general, including communications about invoices

                • 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.

                    • 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 better monetary credit to startups similar to Google's $100K

                        Currently Azure provides $150 a month in credit through BizSpark. I'm sure Microsoft can top that.

                        • 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.

                                        • Enable MPN subscriptions to be associated with an Organizational Account

                                          In a recent ticket (114111712051179) it was clarifed to me that a subscription with Microsoft Partner Network benefits cannot be associated with an Organisational Account, only with a Microsoft Live ID.
                                          Microsoft Partners are ambassadors of the Microsoft products, and should be able to fully leverage features such as ADFS. As power users, we now have to use live ID's for our Azure subscription, and Org ID for Office 365 - this creates issues, confusion and a lackluster adoption of the various cloud services.
