Following the launch of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016, we are pleased to announce general availability of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV managed service for partners, a significant new option for Microsoft partners interested in providing multitenant Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV and deployed in the cloud on Microsoft Azure.
The Microsoft Dynamics NAV managed service is a highly scalable and reliable platform-as-a-service offering that consists of:
- Streamlined administration: A new management portal and web services API enable Microsoft partners to efficiently deploy, manage, upgrade and monitor Microsoft Dynamics NAV multitenant solutions on Microsoft Azure.
- Simplified operations: Cloud-optimized licensing and billing helps partners deploy customers more quickly, manage users seamlessly, and receive a single bill from Microsoft for the service.
- Microsoft Azure: Auto-scaled, load-balanced and highly-available, the service utilizes Microsoft Azure, which includes many built-in benefits such as enterprise-class security, geo-replication, backup support, and point-in-time restore.
- 24×7 support from Microsoft: Microsoft Cloud Engineers monitor and maintain partner solutions, customers, and users, offering Microsoft partners a financially-backed SLA of 99.9% availability.
The Microsoft Dynamics NAV managed service has been in preview since April 2015, with partner solutions and customers live on the service today. Partners interested in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV managed service can find more information at http://aka.ms/NAVManagedService.
