I understand the difficulty to test and support every feature that users ask for. Being in a software editor company myself I know it represents a lot of time. What we do when we have a feature which is asked by a lot of customers, we provide a first version of it, with minimal testing and we indicate the fact that this feature is in beta mode. Customers are more than welcomed to test it and provide us feedback but it is not production ready nor fully supported (contractually).
Yeah it is really easy.
1 Create an azure subscription (if you don’t have one already)
2 Create an azure website (3 clicks really)
3 Create a clear db MySQL db via the third venders (20MB free) (3 more clicks)
4 Upload Piwik and start the setup
Azure WebSite is a free IIS based hosting. And lot of persons already have some free credit on azure (most of them are MS technologies developers but not only). So if Piwik supported MSSQL they could run Piwik for free on azure, even with big amount of data. It would be a good way to reach more users.
I set up the GeoIp, Piwik control panel is telling me that it is properly configured.
