    • Add Network Watcher to Azure Government

      I believe this feature is heavily dependent on Azure Diagnostics among other things in order for it to be ported into Azure Government, but I wanted to note it specifically. The Network Watcher would be an invaluable tool to troubleshoot and audit network configurations in Azure Government.

                      • PowerShell cmdlet for creating a new subscription in Azure Government

                        Our business separates each customer at the subscription level. This is creating a manual process when deploying customers that could be avoided if there were some way to programmatically create a new subscription.

                            Please allow cool storage accounts in Azure Government.

                            I will be able to choose between Hot and Cool access tiers to store object data based on its access pattern. Example use cases for cool storage include backups, media content, scientific data, compliance and archival data. In general, any data that is seldom accessed is a perfect candidate for cool storage.
