  1. Generation 2 VM support

    We know that Azure Stack is consistent with Azure and does not support Generation 2 VMs. Only Generation 1 VMs.

    Maybe you can something implement like an option / a switch we have today for VM roles in VMM & WAP.

    • Bring Service Bus (SBaaS) to Azure Stack

      Service Bus is a common component in many applications and integrations. Widely used in my organisation.
      To have this feature in Azure Stack would be fantastic.

      • Where is SMA in Microsoft Azure Stack?

        The Azure Consistent Service Delivery session of Microsoft Ignite 2015 (https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Ignite/2015/BRK2484) details an overview of the Resource Providers that will probably be part of Microsoft Azure Stack. I'm missing SMA in that list. Will there be a version of SMA in Microsoft Azure Stack, that has a tenant experience consistent with Azure Automation in Microsoft Azure?

        • Bring SQL Databases (MS SQL Database as a Service) to Azure Stack

          When is comes to app development on PaaS platforms, Databases and DBaaS are "core" & "can't-live-without".

          I see them already included in first release ;)

          • Ability of complete Offline Installation of Microsoft Azure Stack TP / PoC

            Enterprises with special security requirements, often do not have a direct link to azure.com, which is currently needed in terms of Azure Active Directory in Microsoft Azure Stack TP1 PoC.

            Therefore a third Setup method beside AAD and AADChina, namely an integration into an on premise AD would be required.

            It is clear, that the whole automation and provisioning process of MAS has to be coordinated with all its components.
            But this also could be achieved by provisioning one additional virtual machine via the MAS-PoC-Powershell-Installer, which is a Domain Controller.

            • Backup as a service for Azure Stack (a.k.a Backup resource provider)

              We waited for a backup plugin for Windows Azure Pack, which never came. As a hosting service provider and a large enterprise with dfferent departments to cater, being able to provide backup as a service is key. Please bring this resource provider with GA of Azure stack please!

              • Bring Application Insights to Azure Stack

                APM-tools are crucial in our organisation. An on-prem solution for this is important for organisations that aren't allowed to store data outside on-prem datacenter.

                Would be a shame to be forced to use other on-prem software like appdynamics.

                • Single pane of glass. Manage Microsoft Azure subscriptions from Microsoft Azure Stack and vice versa

                  Since Portal and ARM are consistent across clouds it would be awesome if we can manage an Microsoft Azure subscription from Microsoft Azure Stack (preferably add to ARM like a region). And vice versa add a Microsoft Azure Stack region to Microsoft Azure (preferable as a region in ARM for that tenant).

                              • Bring Azure Resource Manager custom policies to Microsoft Azure Stack

                                Enterprises tend to have all kinds of policies in place related to conventions. allowedValues for parameters in an ARM JSON template can be easily worked around by using PowerShell to communicate with ARM directly instead of going through the portal. ARM custom policies in Microsoft Azure (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/resource-manager-policy/) enforces conventions at the ARM level. Please bring the policy capability for ARM over to Microsoft Azure Stack. This is a much needed capability for Enterprises.

                                • Support SAN as a backend disk type

                                  Azure stack currently supports only DAS for its disk infrastructure. Unfortunately, many on-prem datacenters use SAN for disk and blade servers that can't be reused as we start to utilize Azure Stack.

                                  The ability to point at SAN would allow us to quickly build up azure stack infrastructure.

                                        All of my customers have invested in Windows 2012 R2 for their IaaS requirements. Please support Windows Server 2012 R2 for Azure stack resource providers (at least for resource placement, tracking and utilization)

                                        • Support for Data factory and ML

                                          Data factory and ML form a great combination to make use of the existing on prem systems and legacy data and get significant value really fast. It would be great to have these 2 tools bundled in the azure stack.
