Azure Government Marketplace

The Azure Government Marketplace helps connect government agencies and partners with independent software vendors (ISVs) and start-ups that are offering their solutions in Azure Government.


For information on making your images available in Azure Government, see the partner onboarding guidelines.


The Azure Government Marketplace differs from the Azure Marketplace in the following ways:

  • Only Bring Your Own License (BYOL) and Pay-as-you-Go (PayGo) images are available.
  • A different set of images is available. You can find the list of available images here


Red Hat Enterprise Linux is available in Azure Government with Azure Marketplace billing. This is a special case exception to the above statement about license options in Azure Government.
