    • Add cloud shell w/ Azure CLI/PS support in Azure Gov Portal

      Same as commercial: Shell access from virtually anywhere
      Connect with Azure using an authenticated, browser-based shell experience that’s hosted in the cloud and accessible from virtually anywhere. Azure Cloud Shell is assigned per unique user account and is automatically authenticated with each session. Combined with Azure portal’s familiar GUI experience, Cloud Shell adds the power and flexibility of using an authenticated shell experience.

          Azure AD B2B is planned for CY18Q3.
          This initial iteration of B2B is scoped to support only adding guests from other Azure Government tenants and not Azure commercial.

          Give us as much details as possible about your scenario anyway so that we can make sure we’re addressing your needs!

            • 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.

              • Azure Search in Azure Government

                Azure Search delegates server and infrastructure management to Microsoft, leaving me with a ready-to-use service that I can populate with my data and then use to add search to your web or mobile application.

                • Premium Storage in 'US Gov Iowa'

                  None of the S versions of VM SKUs are available in 'US Gov Iowa'

                  With Premium Storage, I can add up to 32 TB of persistent storage per virtual machine, with more than 50,000 IOPS per virtual machine and extremely low latencies for read operations.

                        • 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.

                          • Data Lake in Azure Government

                            Have many states actively asking to start projects in Data Lake. This would be a major advantage in the Gov space.

                              • Enable Managed Service Identity for VMs in Azure Government

                                Allow for Azure Government VMs & VM Scale Sets to be managed via the new Azure AD Managed Service Identity (MSI) feature.

                                https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/managed-service-identity/overview

                                Note this is different from MSI for App Services & Functions, for that see:
