Today I’m happy to announce the limited preview for Azure Active Directory Premium on the Microsoft Azure Government Cloud.
This preview is for customers that have specific compliance needs (e.g., FedRAMP or DoD requirements), and while certifications aren’t in place yet, we plan to have them in place for General Availability.
To gain access to this limited preview, just complete our onboarding survey and someone from our engineering team will connect with you to discuss next steps.
We know you probably have questions, and we’ve tackled a few of the big ones below.
Pricing and licensing
The Azure Active Directory Premium for Microsoft Azure Government Cloud is free during this preview period. We will announce pricing details as we get closer to General Availability.
Is there a preview for other EMS services?
This preview is currently limited to Azure Active Directory Premium. Other EMS services are not currently in preview. We’re planning to conduct additional previews in the future and will be sure to announce them as they’re rolled out.
