  1. Nested Virtualization

    Stack includes several F*s_v2 machines with hyper-threading. Still, however, nested virtualization is not enabled. Having access to nested virtualization in Azure Stack would allow the use of third party tools that depend on nested virtualization. These tools are an important part of the development/test/deployment cycle.

  4. Bring Snapshot capability on Azure Stack

    Azure Stack is not supporting Snapshot (Disk, Manage Disk, ...)

    Out of the box backup capability are very limited (the sole option available consist to deploy an Agent on IaaS Virtual Machine to make some hybrod backup with an Azure Backup solution on the cloud and/or a 3rd party tool, but once again limited to what is "inside" a Virtual Machine + following Agent deployment on VM + interconnection with Backup Server Solution.

    Snapshot support on Disk, Data, Storage Account will be a great feature to :
    * smooth difference with Public Cloud
    * ability to make "snapshot" manually by…

    Azure provides support for IPv6 public facing IPs, both static and dynamic.

  8. The possibility to assign an public ip adres from an different IP pool.

    It is possible to add an new public IP pool, only it is not possible to assign an IP address from that new IP pool to a new customer by using an offer and network quote. Or by creating an VM with an Public IP address and have the possibility to chose an IP address from that new pool.

  9. Add a premium vs. standard storage utilization view for Azure Stack Operators

    Add a premium vs. standard storage utilization view for Azure Stack Operators. The view should also correlate tenant utilization of the different storage tiers to physical storage resources.

  10. Azure Stack Admin REST API - Add Tags within Public IP Addresses endpoint

    We would like to make some automation on Azure Stack and PIP @ip address within Datacenter integration by using TAGS.

    The REST API : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-ca/rest/api/azurestack/publicipaddresses/list?view=servicefabricactors-2.6.204 have tags properties available, but when we call the REST API Endpoint, the JSON response not reporting value setup within Stack :(

    In term of usage, here 2 use cases.

    use case 1 : if Public IP scenario is used for PIP and deployement, then by "default" the Public IP could be protected by Physical Firewall in front of Stack (ie Policy with low priority with Deny/Deny by default). Then, if the end user want…

  14. Add SQL Pay as You Use Images to Marketplace

    The current Azure Stack SQL images are all BYOL.

    Please add SQL Pay as You Go Images to the Marketplace so they can be billed under CSP Billing.

    Having to add SPLA licensing for each SQL VM is not ideal.

  16. SQL Resource Provider: Allow default database permissions to be customized at the SKU level

    The default permission for any SQL Login added at the time a database is provisioned through the SQL Resource Provider for Azure Stack is DBO.

    This is not permittable for enterprises subject to regulatory compliance requirements to ensure least rights applicable are deployed (SOX compliance, PCI, etc.)

    Allowing the permissions to be customizable at the SKU level allows the SQL Resource Provider operator to accommodate more restrictive default permission deployment requirements for servers offered through the resource provider.

  17. SQL Resource Provider: Add support for Active Directory Global Groups when provisioning a SQL RP database

    Add support for Active Directory Global Groups when provisioning a SQL Resource Provider database in Windows Azure Stack.

    Currently, only a SQL Login can be specified.

    The SQL Resource Provider for Azure Pack allowed either a SQL Login or a Windows Active Directory Global Group to be added.

    Additional functionality to configure only Active Directory Global Groups to be provisioned instead of a SQL Login at the SKU level would be useful for enterprises that do not permit SQL Logins as a matter of regulatory compliance.

  20. Create message center like in Office 365

    Keep your customers better informed about changes to the Azure stack that may affect them.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/manage/message-center?view=o365-worldwide
    As an example the rollout of outbound rules broke our load balancer for outbound traffic and we only spotted this later. This should have been flagged as' plan for change'
