Are there any guidelines for what an Azure Partner Directory profile should have?

The goal of the Azure Partner Directory is to have a listing for customers who need to connect with Partners in the context of leveraging the Azure public cloud offering. With that in mind we are asking partners to describe their business in the context of Microsoft Azure services/solutions they provide that meet a customer’s need.

  • In general, comply with Azure brand guidelines (e.g. Microsoft Azure, not Windows Azure)
  • Profile must contain a logo (340X148 pixels, .png, .jpg or .jpeg)
  • URL should reference your Microsoft azure business and not a generic homepage
  • Service description should not be generic (e.g. overview of company) but specific to your Microsoft Azure service practice
  • Profile must reference only those Azure services/solutions for which you have an active practice and expertise
