Offer a crypto-currency mining specific product.

I am one of the people who "steal" CPU time for mining digital currencies as has been complained about by other user on here. I got my account suspended within 10 hours of starting mining. So clearly my suggestion is to offer a mining-specific product which is firewalled from 'regular' instances and which offers optional GPU mining support also.

    We have no plans to offer a crypto currency mining product however after the large influx of miners to our platform last year we did have to adjust how our CPU sharing works to account for them especially given that the majority of them were fraudulent accounts as the economics of mining crypto currency on a public cloud are just not feasible when there are sever farms with GPUs dedicated to that task. As a result you should see better overall utilization and if you still run into an issue please open a support ticket and we'll look into it. Thanks, Moisey
