    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re reviewing it.

  2. Why no datacenters in Middle East and Africa?

    Hi Microsoft,
    I can’t help thinking that Microsoft is pursuing some sort of imperialist western agenda with the deployment of its worldwide Azure Datacenters! As an independent software developer based here in Dubai with clients right across Africa, The Middle East and the Sub-continent we currently have the choice of hosting in Western Europe (Amsterdam) which is between 6500km and 8000km away from our clients, or South East Asia (Singapore) 5000 to 11000kms away.
    Guys it is time to realize that there is 2/5's of the world’s population nearby - let’s see something proactive in terms of datacenter deployment, and…

    Stay tuned for more updates here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/?v=17.14

  4. Create this new Azure region : Switzerland

    Switzerland is a small country but it is one of the world’s strongest economies. Many swiss companies can't make the move to Azure because they do need to have theirs data inside the country.
    Please create this new Azure region : Switzerland !
    Thanks.

    Windows Azure is commercially available in the following 84 countries, and this is not one of them. Learn more here: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/faq/

    We are adding more countries as we can, but in the meantime if you wish to use the service in an unsupported country, you’ll need to use one of several third party providers which front the Azure Subscriptions for organizations in unsupported countries. Just keep in mind that those providers are not MSFT so perform due-diligence to make sure any vendor you select is reputable.

    Thanks for understanding.

  6. Azure not available in Malawi

    Malawi is not listed among countries in the Azure signup. It is therefore impossible to set up and/or use any Azure services. Please can we be added? We are on boarding as a Microsoft partner in a program where we expect to have massive adoption of Azure services

  7. provide Azure availibility in Gibraltar

    Please provide Azure services availability in Gibraltar. Gibraltar as financial center does high value, a lot of big UK gaming companies are settled her. For me as a developer based here is hard to promote Microsoft solutions to potential clients while Microsoft solutions are not supported here. Many companies her are using Oracle solutions, it will make sense to catch the train here. It is the small country with big business here. It is bad, that MS is not supporting UK overseas territory, especially that one, that is member of EU as Special member state territory.

  8. Include Martinique and Guadeloupe

    It would be great to include Martinique and Guadeloupe (both french overseas territories) in the Azure countries list. As they use specific phone prefix (+596 and +590) we're unable to sign up with the France +33 prefix.

  9. Azure plataform, small business, brazilian location,

    Dear MS, i'm simple enchanted with the azure plataform. As a 3 world businessman, i try to look forward and see big and small business sharing the same technology, on next years. can we think as fabien (open erp) and look forward? with all visual suít and etc... why we cant focus on small business, whoio needs technology too? i guarantee that, Microsoft will sell more Windows and office licenses than ever. Maybe small business ppl arent ready now, but they shall be on future, when a lot of developers will come with a lot of options for us............... idk,maybe…

  14. Add Seychelles in the list of supported countries for Azure

    Seychelles is currently not in the list of supported countries for Azure, hence cannot benefit from the features currently available even for trial purposes. However, the certifications are available. This is causing constrains even for students who wish to pursue a career and use this platform for training purposes. Neighboring Islands such as Mauritius and Madagascar has the access, hence makes no sense in a regional point of view for Seychelles not to be included.

  15. Availability set is the only solution/suggestion provided by MS whenever we face backend host failure issue

    Availability set is the only solution/suggestion provided by MS whenever we face backend host failure issue and this solution/suggestion is not useful for large enterprise customer where we manage like 1000 VM's.

  16. More specific document in Azure Region

    I want to build VMs in South Africa West, but I cannot see this region on Portal. When I requested a ticket to Azure to ask for permission , the support engineer replied that this region is only for disaster recovery. I wish there could be a notice shows on Azure Region(https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/global-infrastructure/regions/).

  20. sync Azure availability zones and regional pairs

    We run an application with active-active in EastUS and WestUS2.
    A full switch from one Region to another is possible.
    EastUS was selected as it offers more features compared to EastUs2, e.g. VMscaleset encryption, Application Insights.
    Would be great if EastUS and WestUS2 could be used also as regional pairs - as currently only EastUS2 is offered as partner for WestUS2 - to benefit from the not simultanious updates.
