      • Add Service Map Solution to Azure Government OMS

        Add the Service Map solution to MAG OMS. The ability to map and show details of the entire IaaS/PaaS environment can assist with both ATO and required documentation making the transition to Azure Government much smoother. This also ties into incident management and remediation as well as Security Center.

              • Azure File Sync service in Azure Government

                With the migration to off-premise cloud, the ability to synchronize large datasets from traditional file servers to the Azure File and Azure IaaS File servers would be greatly beneficial. Especially when you are looking at between 20 and 60 TB of data to sync.

                                • Enable Log Analytics search REST API for government use

                                  The log analytics search REST API is available for marketplace use but not government sites. We followed the documentation here thinking our logs could be searched using api.loganalytics.io: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-log-search-api. Expanding the API log search capability to government sites with an api.loganalytics.us option would be a useful feature for our company and potentially others. At the very least, the documentation should mention that government sites are not supported.

                                  • Azure Government Marketplace parity with Azure Marketplace

                                    Some of the products in the Azure Marketplace are not available in Azure Government Marketplace.
                                    Security product options are wider in the Azure Marketplace compared to Azure Government Marketplace. One example is Cisco Firepower Next Generation Firewall.

                                    When can we expect to see parity?

                                      We are continuously working on reducing the gap between the Azure Marketplace and the Azure Government Marketplace. We have some ideas to tackle this more programatically/systemically, however we’d also encourage folks to create individual entries for specific images they’d like us to ensure are made available in the interim.

                                      For example, you can create a feedback entry for the Cisco Firepower Next Generation Firewall offering and we can prioritize that one and keep you appraised on its progress.
