  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  15. 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.
