5Professional Direct support provides you with limited advisory support in comparison to Premier. Professional Direct Advisory is your access point to Azure Support for guidance based on publically available documentation regarding Microsoft Azure. ProDirect, however, does not provide detailed advisory assistance specific to an individual customer such as code or architecture reviews, design reviews, detailed instructions for application or configuration tuning (e.g., performance tuning), or the verification of specifications. Also, ProDirect does not engage in implementation activities such as, but not limited to, coding or configuration for customer development or deployment on Microsoft Azure.
Microsoft Professional Direct Support for Azure provides first-class support designed especially for mid-sized customers who require elevated support and access to experts and top-rated educational events. With Professional Direct Support, we help you maximize application uptime, reduce cost, and accelerate your development.
Technical support will be provided in local language where available. Exclusive content and services provided by the Service Delivery Management team as shown above will be provided in English and Japanese only.
In addition to English, Azure support is provided in local languages including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. In addition, support in Japanese is provided 24x7 for Severity A incidents and during local business hours for Severity B and C incidents (9am-5:30pm weekdays).
Support for billing and subscription management-related issues as well as break-fix issues is available at all support levels. Break-fix issues are problems experienced by customers while using Azure where there is a reasonable expectation that Microsoft caused the problem. Developer mentoring and advisory services are available at the Professional Direct and Premier support levels.
