This is something we’re still actively working on. It has a been a big area of investment and it still is moving forward. We keep investing in performance, both from a client and server side perspective.
We have a few things coming in the near future which should help address some of the initial UI performance issues. We’re also heavily engaged with all of our partners driving a broad effort to improve performance across the portal for all experiences.
If you have any specific areas which are causing pain please feel free to reach out to me or comment and state if we can contact you, it would be great to understand the common pain points.

We added auto-stop in the platform and we are considering the addition of auto-start as well. Please continue to vote up this item if you would like to see auto-start included with our existing auto-stop feature.
NFS or SMB? Please vote this up for NFS.

Startup times for VMs continues to be a focus in Azure. I am leaving this item in the “Started” state because we still have work to be done, but the current deployment time we are seeing for Windows Server on average is 2 minutes (1 minute for Linux). We’ll continue to invest resources in driving down this number.

Currently you can increase the size of a disk when the VM is in the stop-deallocated state. We are also working on a solution where a disk can be increased in size while attached to a running VM.

This is still coming. The work is being completed now and we will be able to expose it in a few months.

The status of this item has been moved back to Under Review. We initially planned to move to VHDX support as part of our support for HyperV Gen2 VMs, but we ended up using the VHD format for Gen2 VMs as well. Some aspects of the Azure Infrastructure do not cleanly support VHDX OS or data disks. So this feature is dependent on some of these internal services being updated which is an ongoing process.
Thanks for the feedback.
