Lokad founder Joannes Vermorel, posted his “big wish list for Windows Azure,” itemized the suggestions for new features and tweaks that the “would turn Azure into a killer product, deserving a lion-sized market share in the cloud computing marketplace.” Vermorel has a number of suggestions about the core Windows Azure cloud-operating-system core, ranging from smaller VMs, to per-minute, per-hour pricing. He also made a case for some new features for SQL Azure. But there’s one piece of Azure that Vermorel said he doesn’t like at all: The Windows Azure Console. “The Windows Azure Console is probably the weakest component of Windows Azure. In many ways, it’s a real shame to see such a good piece of technology so much dragged down by the abysmal usability of its administrative web client. Vermorel said it needs a 100-times speed-up (he says users can be required to wait 20 minutes for an update after a configuration of a role),” Vermorel said. Also, “if you’ve a suggestion or idea for a new feature for Windows Azure? Go here to post requests and vote on other people's ideas,” Azure blog.
