Azure splash


Dear partner,

Following the availability of Windows Azure in Open licensing as of 1st August 2014, Microsoft and Ingram Micro would like to invite you to our Windows Azure Splash trainings in July and August.

With this availability date fast approaching, we believe it is high time for us to help you get to know Windows Azure and all of its possibilities in terms of Hosting Solutions and Infrastructure.

Surf the Azure Wave!

To this end, we proudly introduce the Azure Wave! Much like surfing, riding this wave is a three step process:

Step 1: Complete preparatory work ahead of the training

· Azure 101

· Sign-up for Azure – with MPN Credits or Free Trial

Step 2: Attend 1 of the 2 full day Azure Splash trainings at Ingram Micro*

· Wednesday 9th July 2014

· Thursday 28th August 2014

Step 3: Complete post-training work to perfect your knowledge

· Attend all short sessions in the Azure pre-sales learning path track

*Please note: make sure to complete the recommended prep work before attending a training, as the training will dive deeper into the offered content!

Registration for the trainings is required.
