I primarily work with Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform.

I will just focus on Azure suggestions:

- IaaS deployments are slow with Windows VMs

I'd ask for better documentation, preferably with all updates dated.
I'd also ask for improved error messages that actually give a clue as to
what is really wrong.

I primarily work with Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. My main
business partner has years of expertise with Amazon.

I will just focus on Azure suggestions:

- IaaS deployments are slow with Windows VMs
- Versioning / packaging is too coupled with Visual Studio
- A cloud platform should be fully controllable with only the command line
- otherwise you're killing DevOps
- msbuild is not great at bridging that gap
- Support is iffy compared to what I'm accostomed to with Google (inculding
by phone)
- There are some gaps with hybrid models
- websites can't connect to on premise VMs
- reserved IPs don't work with affinity groups
- I receive connection timeouts periodically when controlling the VMs via
Powershell (and the client network is super fast)


PLEASE ADD SSH / SFTP SERVICES IN WINDOWS ... something like this:

It is very hard to administer a machine across WinRM

I do not use Microsoft products, so I shall only give suggestions for Amazon.

Also please allow me to install my custom OS and have interoperability with KVM images.
