What is the cloud marketplace?

Two distinct marketplace storefronts together comprise the cloud marketplace: Azure Marketplace and AppSource. Using these virtual storefronts, partners can list offers and trials, and transact directly with Microsoft customers and our ecosystem.

The cloud marketplace platform allows customers to find, try, and buy applications and services that help them accelerate their digital transformation, while providing partners access to our customers and partner ecosystem.

Here is how the two storefronts compare.
