    We have been using Azure since the real early days in 2012. What was great about the cloud and Microsoft's ethos at the time (which they had right) is that it was all about scale as you grow and pay for what you need. Unfortunately as Azure has grown clearly the 'old' marketing folks have moved departments, taken over and completely missed the point. Large swaths of Microsoft's Azure services are now unusable because they have adopted this strategy of adding BASIC / absolutely necessary functionality and features - like security - (deploying to VNETs) to only the highest tiers which have ridiculous prices. Therefore for a lot of deployments where API Managment and other Azure services could be utilised MS have priced themselves out of the market / consideration. Apps are built without including their services and as they say small Acorns in time grow into large oak trees. Once built these apps will be around for years and if they contain competitors offerings they won't be rewritten / replaced anytime soon. Even as an SME with reasonable budget for most projects we can't justify £2400 p/m for API management for a particular service, £900 p/m for Azure secure app environment (this not even including VMs), and various other disproportionate costs to simply run a various low volume services in a particular project securely - which is a must have requirement. AWS have this right. Create, maintain, and secure APIs at any scale.

    Gibraltar is a hub within europe for many large gaming and insurance companies who are based here. It seems odd that every other country is listed including ones you might consider high risk - Yemen, Afghanistan or small scale like Gibraltar such as the Faroe Islands etc... Gibraltar seems to have been forgotten please add as its not possible to setup a billing account directly for Gibraltar based companies.

    Thanks for the feedback! We are interested in collecting feedback on this request – please vote for it if this is something you like to see.

    We’re also interested in learning more what people want to use the SFTP/FTPS for and which protocol they prefer. Please feel free to leave us a comment letting us know more detail!

    Thanks,

    SFTP is bread and butter for most businesses (read essential). I've been saying this for years to Microsoft / Azure teams but as someone said below falls on deaf ears. Anyhow Amazon now have a service for this - AWS Transfer for SFTP - for those wanting a PaaS / managed SFTP solution. Links to S3 storage bucket, users can be permission-ed down. Haven't looked at Amazon for a while but there are lots of new services its worth having another look.

    An FTP server is one of those bread and butter services every company will need at some point and is prime for turning into a PaaS offering to free up IT from having to setup and maintain multiple VMs to act as a high avalibility FTP service. As others have said allow upload to blob storage and provide a HA hosted FTP service with access controlled via Azure AD. It always amazes me how Microsoft have released so many advanced Azure services over the years yet still consistently fail to adress the bread and butter problems of most SME businesses.

    An FTP server is bread and butter for most SMEs e.g. almost everyone has at least one. We have been waiting since 2012 for a secure FTP as a service offering thinking it can't be too much longer and it amazes me how Microsoft time and time again fails on providing / getting the basics right most SMEs need.

    Managed high availability SFTP server with security managed through Azure AD and storage either to or automatically backed by Azure storage.

    Easy money for MS and reduction in friction for SMEs trying to move from traditional hosting companies to Azure.

    Hi Joseph! Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. We have recently published updates to the Microsoft Azure Trust Center [http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/trust-center/compliance/], and we are planning on releasing updated guidance specifically covering PCI compliance. Keep an eye on the Trust Center Resources page for the latest information, as well as the Azure Security and Compliance blog at http://azure.microsoft.com/blog. Thank you for your patience! Best regards,

    —Joel
