UDP endpoints would allow for full RTP/RTCP/RTSP media streaming implementations as well custom protocols for game systems.
UDP is supported on Windows Azure.

How can i get my JSON from windows azure hosted website?

Not having this is absurd.

'ping' is a must!
and how about ping :)?
I'm maklng a multiplayer game for WP7 and I really need UDP for it.
Sean Homan commented
There are numerous applications that are begging for an azure adoption that can not happen because azure blocks public udp endpoints. Guess its EC2 for me... they have no problem supporting udp.

I need both ICMP and UDP... or I need to change provider

I need UDP, to deploy a DNS Grid.
UDP is necessary for a LOB application I need to host, without UDP endpoint access I'm going to host it with someone else. Additionally I need multiple port ranges of 100 ports open, this also prevents me from using azure
UDP ports are necessary to deploy a RADIUS server.
The lack of udp is the only foreseeable limitation to migrating our game server over to azure. Please make it happen!
We need it to communicate with some remote devices native implementations.

Lack of UDP is preventing a whole range of apps from being implemented. It would be very helpful to at least get some indication of whether this is even being considered as a feature so we can plan accordingly.
We cannot use Microsoft's Load Testing Tools effectively without UDP enabled. The Test Controller uses this protocol to collect data from the system under test. The system we are attempting to load test is running in Azure and we are not able to collect performance data from that instance because of this.
When does Azure plan to support UDP?
for example if you want to query a ntp server, thats only support udp
A lot of applications require UDP . Why Azure Don't Support It ?
I cannot understand a distributed online system without UDP
Want to migrate to Windows Azure but must have UDP for faster communications with our game and other servers. Please implement this at least in a simple case, i.e. only to VM roles and without load balalncing (which we don't use) - just want the communication capability. Thanks !
