Hello Microsoft Cloud Partners!
I am hearing a lot of excitement from partners about the opportunity that Azure Stack represents, and many partners are looking for training and resources to help them get started. I wanted to share some of those items with you here.
- A new Azure Stack e-book was released a couple weeks ago. It’s intended to help you plan an end-to-end Azure Stack validation environment using the Azure Stack Development Kit. You can find it at Azure Stack: Building an end-to-end validation environment.
- If you haven’t tried Azure Stack, you can prototype your applications using the Azure Stack Development Kit, our free single-server deployment option. Any applications built with it will run correctly when deployed to a multi-server production system. If you already have deployed a previous version of the Azure Stack Development Kit (ASDK), please note a new version has been released recently and you can find the release notes here.
- If you’re looking to access technical and sales readiness resources for partners that will help you build, deploy and sell Azure Stack solutions, go to Azure Stack Technical Training & Resources and Azure Stack Sales Readiness & Resources. For technical training, I would specifically recommend the MOOC course Configuring and Operating Microsoft Azure Stack.
Hope this information is helpful and good luck in your Azure journey!
