Available Azure services in Azure CSP

This article discusses the Azure services that are and are not available in the Azure Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program. It also discusses service availability in the national clouds Microsoft Azure Germany and Microsoft Azure Government.

Note

Azure China is not available in the Azure CSP program.

If you are a partner or customer who already uses Azure through Pay-As-You-Go, Enterprise Agreement, or other license channels, keep in mind that not all Azure services are currently available in the CSP program.

For example, because Azure CSP supports only the Azure Resource Manager model, non-Azure Resource Manager services are not available in the program. Several Azure Resource Manager services are also not available in the program. However, the situation is changing quickly.

Comments

  • Some Azure network services are not region-specific. They can be deployed inside a global Azure subscription and used for national cloud purposes. These services include:

    • Azure Content Delivery Network
    • Azure DNS
    • Azure Traffic Manager
  • Non-Azure Resource Manager services and the Azure classic portal. Services that are not available in Azure CSP include:

  • StorSimple Virtual Array Manager: This service is available in Azure CSP, but StorSimple Physical Array Manager is not. You can purchase and manage physical StorSimple devices only through an Enterprise Agreement.

  • Operations Management Suite (OMS) components: These components are available as separate Azure services. OMS E1 and E2 SKUs are not available in CSP.

  • Azure Active Directory Premium and Azure Multi-Factor Authentication: These services are available as license-based subscriptions in Partner Center, outside the regular Azure usage-based subscriptions.

  • Azure Active Directory Domain Services - This service is now available in CSP. For more information see Azure Active Directory (AD) Domain Services for Azure Cloud Solution Providers (CSP).

  • Azure Active Directory B2C: This service is currently not available in Azure CSP. The estimated launch timeframe is middle of 2018.

  • Azure App Service: There is no support for integration with third-party Azure Marketplace applications (for example, ClearDB) because third-party Marketplace applications aren't enabled for Azure CSP subscriptions yet.

  • Key Vault: The process for setting up Ke y Vault for Azure CSP subscriptions is the same as that for other types of Azure subscriptions (Enterprise Agreement, Pay-As-You-Go). However, the vault access control list (ACL) policy must be set up manually. For more information, see Setting up Key Vault for Azure CSP subscriptions.

  • Azure Time Series Insights: This service is available in Azure CSP, but please note that only users from the customer tenant can access data in their Time Series Insights environment. Partners can manage their customer’s Time Series Insights environment by default, but if they need access to the data in it, they must be added to the customer tenant. For more information see Azure Time Series Insights.

Visual Studio Marketplace

You can now purchase items from Visual Studio Marketplace with the exception of third party extensions for your customers. This includes:

To help get you started, we have created videos and documentation about how to set up, purchase, and manage Visual Studio in CSP.

Tip

Check Azure Services in the Azure CSP Release Notes on the Partner Center Pricing and Offers page (requires authorization).

Azure Marketplace items in Azure CSP

Not all Azure Marketplace items are currently available in Azure CSP subscriptions.

  • Microsoft-based Azure services: These services are available. Review the previous table and comments.

  • Bring your own license (BYOL) items: These items are available. A full list of BYOL-enabled Azure Marketplace items is available on the Azure Marketplace BYOL page.

  • Pay-As-You-Go third-party Azure Marketplace items: These items are not available, with few exceptions like Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

  • Citrix XenApp Essentials: Partners can purchase XenApp Essentials for customers in CSP. For more information, see Citrix Blog- Distribution of XenApp Essentials now available through Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Channel.

Azure Marketplace in CSP

Though Pay-As-You-Go Azure Marketplace items are not available in Azure CSP, many of these services can still be obtained for a customer. One of the strengths of the Azure CSP model is that an Azure CSP partner can bundle Azure services and BYOL items with third-party software licenses, which are purchased through a separate partner channel (outside Azure CSP).

In this way, a customer can use a third-party product that's deployed in Azure and then pay for it in a single bill.

Next steps

  • Learn about the available capabilities for Azure in Partner Center.
  • Create your first customer in Azure CSP, and deploy Azure services.
