What you need to know

Microsoft Azure provides a flexible platform to let you build, release, and manage applications across a global network of data centers. You can create applications using any language, tool, or framework, as well as integrate your applications within your current IT environment.

If you have a gold or silver competency, sign in to the Microsoft Server and Cloud Partner Resources site to gain access to Server and Cloud partner resources and information to help you win against the competition (Microsoft account sign in required).

Cloud programs

 The Microsoft Partner Network is in the process of integrating our Cloud Partner programs—Cloud Essentials, Cloud Accelerate, Cloud Deployment—into the Microsoft competencies and the new Microsoft Action Pack subscription. Cloud Essentials and the cloud internal-use software benefits have been integrated into the Partner Network; however, the Cloud Accelerate and Cloud Deployment programs will continue for the time being. Learn more about the benefits of participating in the Cloud Accelerate and Cloud Deployment programs.
