Elastic IP Address to Enable Call to Other Web Services (eg Twitter, Enterprise)
As more and more services will call other services in the cloud; many services require white-list of IP address for policy reasons. For example, Twitter or try to connect to other Telco Gateway. They cannot accept a IP Address Range (especially the whole Azure), as the IP address.
Is there any plan to allow us to specify an IP address for a set of instance types (for example for these web or worker roles the IP address are xxxxxx)? In other words, one static IP address will be mapped to N instances of x role.
I know Amazon EC2 allows us to do this - I really hope Azure can also do it in the very near future
Thanks for your feedback.
We are already working on the ability for customers to reserve IP addresses that can be used as the public IP address of a service running in Azure. This should be available for customers in the next few months. Stay tuned!

I second Andy's scenario.
