New Microsoft Azure Qualified Proof of Concept (PoC) Program

Earlier this year, we released Redis Enterprise as a fully managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) on Microsoft Azure, and are now authorized to sell Redis Enterprise through the Microsoft One Commercial Partner program

Since the announcement, Microsoft and Redis have partnered to make it easy for users to run, scale, and manage Redis Enterprise on Azure. We are energized by the positive feedback we’ve gotten from customers and partners who are beginning to move their Redis Enterprise databases to Azure, and we want to make it easier for everyone to see the benefits of running Redis Enterprise on Azure. 

Complimentary Microsoft Azure subscription

That’s why we are so excited to announce participation in the Azure Sponsorship Program. The program will grant qualified users access to complimentary infrastructure for thorough evaluations of Redis Enterprise on Azure. This program offers evaluation subscriptions to Azure for up to 90 days for qualified proofs of concept (PoC). 

It’s your risk-free chance to experience the benefits enjoyed by leading e-commerce platforms that are embracing Redis Enterprise on Azure for multiple real-time use cases. As part of its broader strategy to leverage the cloud, for example, this large enterprise retail company is taking advantage of the simplicity and blazing fast performance of running Redis Enterprise on Azure
