How can we improve Microsoft Azure?

Spreadsheet pricing

would be great to have a spreadsheet import for Azure pricing. There are many times where customers want to know how much their VMs will cost to run, but they don't or can't install anything. If there was a way to take a spreadsheet with CPU, Memory, and disk space info and just import that list to the Azure Pricing Calculator or Azure Migrate to get pricing info, that would be perfect.

    A must required feature, at times there are long list of Servers and adding each one onto Calculator consumes lot of time

    Indeed, this would be very helpful Azure Solution Architects in the early presales stages. Customers often comes to us with spreadsheet reports of their VM landscape and ask how much is that going to cost on Azure.

    We have to waste a lot of time to manually add VMs in the pricing calculator. Importing data from a CSV or XLS file will be very helpful. Ideally it would support the ExportedEstimate structure, as we often have to make changes on the fly that's much in Excel than through the web interface - i.e. exporting estimate, modifying it and importing it back would be a nice feature to have!

    Would agentless discovery using remote execution and system accounts work? Agentfull discovery is an issue for companies with extensive change control for installing apps on servers and especially if requiring to disable AV etc.
