  1. Mechanism to control vCPU to Core subscription ratio

    Ability to set the maximum vCPU to physical Core subscription ratio in the Quota for the Compute Service.

    Additionally also provide a metric in the Health Provider to report the current level of vCPU to Core subscription ratio for a Scale Unit

    • Access to all Portal / ARM interfaces only over HTTP/HTTPS

      Reduce access / interfacing with ARM / Portal from a tenant perspective to only over HTTP / HTTPS.

      This will allow for easier access to Azure Stack instances hosted outside of a tenant's corporate network by a user located within the corporate network (which typically restricts external access to HTTP/HTTPS ports for untrusted external internet addresses= via proxy)

      • IOPs upper limit applied to virtual disks

        The application of IOPs upper limits (QoS) to virtual disks in line with the Azure-based storage profile for type of storage.

        This is to prevent "noisy neighbors" affecting other tenants in a multi-tenant scenario

        e.g. HDD (Standard) - Max 500 IOPs per disk

        • When creating subscriptions select the Directory Tenant first, then have a drop down or search to only allow users from that Directory

          When creating subscriptions select the Directory Tenant first, then have a drop down or search to only allow users from that Directory. This will help prevent any spelling mistakes on the User ID that would require the subscription to be recreated.

          • VNET Peering in Azure Stack

            Please consider to implement VNET Peering on Azure Stack (like available on Azure) to be able to connect VNETs within the Azure Stack Region without the need to provision VPN-Gateways

            • The ”big” Compute marketplace should display more items

              The ”big” view of the compute marketplace should show all Images available. They can only be seen by clicking more.

              • Ability to restrict compute sizes available to users

                It would be very beneficial to have the ability to restrict what compute sizes are available to users via offers much like you have the ability to do in Azure Dev/Test Labs. as we are working with a restricted set of compute capacity it would allow admins to have more granular control.

                • Customize default dashboard for new subscriptions

                  Azure Stack admins should be able to change the default dashboard for new subscriptions for tenants.
                  This would highly improve the tenants first impression and ability to learn Azure Stack.
                  Examples of topics to put in the dashboard:
                  Company logo
                  Corp/Hoster specific information
                  Links to movies/documentation/alm-platforms

                  • More Reliable Deployment Script

                    We found some errors during Step 60 but we resolved it by using -ReRun attribute many times. Still I want the main script to be more automated because some people might not know about these things.

                    • Scheduler

                      Are there plans to bring Azure Scheduler to the Stack? Or allow for 3rd party schedulers to be used?

                      Ideally, I would like to see the Azure Scheduler as a default and have the ability to use 3rd party schedulers.

                      • Ability to support enterprise proxy

                        In TP2 a transparent proxy only is supported to communicate with Azure. Unfortunately thats no option because of our network security policy. So it prevents to use Azure Stack as a future hybrid Cloud platform. We need the ability that Azure Stack supports enterprise proxy servers with proxy authentication/ssl interception.

                        • Small integrated systems with Azure Stack

                          For the integrated hardware and software systems coming from Cisco, Dell, and HPE, it would be nice to have a small turn key system, something line a half rack or one full rack for small businesses or department labs to be able to purchase and run independently.

                          • IPV6 and connectivity issue

                            I doubt if the Azure stack will be deployed in pure IPV6 environment hence can we disable the IPV6 on the Domain controller specially in DNS so that there are not connectivity and timeout issues during deployment

                                  • Produce an "Azure Stack Lite" BOM

                                    We have a use case where Azure Stack would be a good deployment fit, but the currently-planned integrated hardware offerings (4 physical servers) aren't small enough to match to the small workload we would like to run on it. (We need an offline Azure Stack for small deployments where data does not leave the country/deployment location.)

                                      • Add .NET Core support to Web Sites

                                        We need .NET Core support for Web Sites. How is Stack suppose to be beneficial for development when it's not even keeping up on technologies that Azure public deploys ASAP.

                                          App Service on Azure Stack is currently in preview and the most recent preview release was released in January 2016 well before ASP.Net Core was released. Therefore the capability is not supported at present. We released ASP.Net Core support in Azure App Service on the 27th June 2016. We will ship support for ASP.Net Core in a future preview but don’t have details to share on when that will be.

                                        • Easier way of creating tenant spaces

                                          Right now I use Terraform to create an entire stack within a Resource Group. With Azure Stack there doesn't seem to be a way to use an API or another automated method to create the customer accounts in Azure Stack. Right now I'd have to manually create the customer's account and subscription and create a service user in AD to be able to have an access key, client id, subscription id, etc to be able to automatically create infrastructure within that customer's space.
