Last week we announced that Azure will be available for partners to resell in the Open Licensing programmes from 1 August 2014.
Azure in Open Volume Licensing offers a new option for you (Partners) to purchase a Microsoft product or service from preferred distributors and resell to customers in order to continue to help build a profitable business while meeting growing demand for flexible cloud solutions.
With Azure in Open, you can control the direct relationship instead of purchasing Azure directly from from us or as part of an Enterprise Agreement (EA) with us.
For more information, please read the blog post from Josh Waldo. Additionally, if you're attending the Worldwide Partner Conference in July (July 13-17 in Washington, D.C.) you can expect to hear more details about how you can grow your cloud practices with Azure in Open.
