Microsoft CSP Direct

It’s time to modernise the way you manage and distribute licences.

This is the model for you if you want to consume Azure services internally for example if you have a SaaS application charged to end-users on a per user per month basis. Alternatively, you can use the Hosting Exception rule to provide a custom solution using Azure services – without reselling or redistributing Azure services to your customers.

You would typically charge your customers based on your hosted solution. All the Azure resources in your customers’ products and services would be created and managed within your own Azure tenant and would be shared. You would need to consider your Azure hosting charges associated with each of the products and services you provide to your end customers.

As the customer, you would be billed for all your own Azure usage for any Azure CSP subscriptions provisioned by us.

What else do you get?

Flexible billing, scalability and cost savings

Moving to CSP can reduce the costs and significant upfront investment in Microsoft licensing with a simple monthly subscription model. You pay for what you use and can increase or decrease your subscriptions whenever you need to. Plus, if needed, you have the option of paying annually.

Cloud subscription management portal

With our cloud automation platform, GMCirrus™, you can add and remove subscriptions easily as well as track your cloud usage whenever you want. Please get in touch if you’d like a demo of the platform.

Products and subscriptions available on the platform include Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Dynamics 365, Visual Studio, and ReSharper, third-party add-ons, and Barracuda Essentials, with more being added all the time.
