(Stephen Parker, Head of Cloud Strategy)
If you have signed up as a Microsoft Online Services partner then you may already be taking advantage of the 250 internal usage rights (IUR). For the first year this is free and for year onwards if you sell 2 BPOS deals with 25 or more seats then these internal usage rights remain free. This is a pretty low barrier and should be easy to achieve for anybody who has made any sort of commitment to BPOS.
However if for any reason you are approaching your 12 month anniversary and have not yet met the requirements then there is a quick way to reset your 12 month free period.
Go to www.microsoftcloudpartner.com and join the Cloud Essentials program. This will not only reset you 12 month free period, but also add a number of other benefits.
