Microsoft Azure

Use the world’s most powerful cloud infrastructure to help your customers realise their ultimate business goals.

What is Microsoft Azure?

Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud computing services to help your customers’ organisation meet its business challenges. With Azure, they have the freedom to build, manage and deploy applications on a massive, global network using their preferred tools and frameworks.



Turn your customers’ ideas into solutions faster with Azure. Develop using any tool, language or framework they want and access 100+ services with great end-to-end tools to make them successful.



Deliver a consistent experience, whether you and/or your customers are in the cloud or on-premises, and a comprehensive view across both environments. Azure has the broadest set of hybrid capabilities of any cloud service provider.



Enable your customers to achieve more with a leading set of modern artificial intelligence (AI) services, tools and enterprise-grade infrastructure that allow them to run their AI workloads from anywhere at scale.



With more certifications than any other cloud provider, Azure leads in privacy, compliance and security. Build your customers applications and migrate their infrastructure with peace of mind.

Direct to Indirect Transactions

Microsoft has updated the requirements for joining the Direct Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) Partner Program. If you no longer meet these requirements you will need to transact with an indirect CSP provider such as Tech Data.


The requirements:

  • Partners must provide at least one managed service, IP service or customer solution application
  • Partners must meet the minimum infrastructure capabilities, such as billing and provisioning
  • Demonstrate steady business growth
  • Purchase either a Microsoft Advanced Support for Partners package or Microsoft Premier Support for Partners package

Should you not meet Microsoft’s requirements, our CSP provisioning here at Tech Data is designed to be seamless, ensuring minimal disruption to your cloud services for both you and your customers.
