Apply to sell in Microsoft national clouds

In addition to selling to customers as part of the global Cloud Solution Provider program, qualified Microsoft partners can also sell cloud solutions to customers in three separate national clouds. National clouds are physical and logical network-isolated instances of Microsoft enterprise cloud services, which are confined within the geographic borders of specific countries and operated by local personnel.

For more information about Microsoft's national cloud offerings, see Microsoft National Clouds.

Microsoft makes these services available in the national clouds:

  • Microsoft Azure in-scope services offer hyperscale computing, storage, networking, and identity management. Azure safeguards data in the cloud at the government-required level of security, privacy, control, compliance, and transparency.

  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) solution that equips government employees with data reporting, modeling, and workflows, while offering security features that can limit access to sensitive data.

  • Microsoft Office 365 combines a defense-in-depth approach to security, rich data-protection tools, and an enterprise-grade compliance framework to provide a secure cloud-based productivity experience for government employees.

Qualified partners can sell Microsoft cloud solutions to customers in these national clouds:

  • Microsoft Cloud for US Government Designed for the US government from the ground up, Microsoft Cloud for Government enables public sector customers in the United States—from large federal agencies to small town governments—to select from a range of cloud computing services. To best address its customers’ specific needs, Microsoft has made significant investment in datacenters and is dedicated to meeting compliance with US federal and state policies, mandates, and requirements.
