(Cloud) Tip of the Day: Create a non-expiry Azure Active Directory tenant

Today’s (Cloud) Tip…

Did you know that if you sign up for Office 365 or Windows Intune, your tenant could be deleted after the subscription is expired?

But if you sign up for a tenant directly from Windows Azure, this tenant will never be deleted.

You can get a Windows Azure Active Directory without the need of a Windows Azure subscription by using the following link…


You can then manage many aspects of this tenant using the Office 365 portal (even if you don’t have an Office 365 subscription).

Tenants have a special tag that the tenant provisioning (or de-provisioning) service takes a look at to determine whether or not to delete a tenant.
