Microsoft Partner Network members at the Action Pack or Competency level all receive USD $100 monthly Azure credit as a Core benefit.
Those of you with the Silver or Gold Cloud Platform Competency are eligible for an additional credit boost of USD $6,000 and $12,000 respectively.
That’s a fair chunk of credit at your disposal – but what can you do with it?
Common Azure usage scenarios for partners include:
- Cloud Storage, Disaster Recovery and Backup
- Cloud based virtual machines
- Custom websites or web hosting
Which is a fantastic opportunity for both you and your customers, but it does generally require an investment in skill development. If you’re impatient like me – you’ll take any advantage available to get up and running asap.
