Hybrid Cloud Blog


Building the unified platform experience for modern business is core to Microsoft’s Cloud OS vision. With cloud technologies playing an ever expanding role in business, we want to ensure that we deliver exceptional value to our partners. To that end, our logo certification program enables partners to showcase their applications with a symbol of quality and reliability.

The logo certification program enables partners to differentiate their applications with a certified badge of quality and reach global exposure through the new and improved pinpoint marketplace. The marketplace allows partners to grow their business through lead generation. The Windows Server Logo certification program has helped us connect our partner ecosystem with customers worldwide by delivering their certified applications globally.

We want to bring the same level of commitment to applications built on System Center and Hyper-V as well. In this spirit, we are happy to announce the launch of System Center Logo certification program and Hyper-V Logo certification program to our partners in the coming months. This blog provides an overview of what these programs entail. We also encourage you to stay tuned for more information in the coming months.

We are laser focused in delivering exceptional value to application providers, ISVs, IT pros and customers through the logo certification program. With this goal in mind, the program has been designed based on the following principles:

  • Deliver great partner experience. Our new partner portal makes it even simpler for partners to register, certify and generate market visibility to their applications.
  • Certify quality and reliability. Partners can now run validation tests and certify their applications against a badge of quality, compatibility, reliability and security.
  • Reach global exposure. With the new and improved pinpoint marketplace, partners can now reach a global market, generating leads to grow their business.

With the launch of the two additional logo certification programs, partners will now be able to certify their applications on the System Center management pack and Hyper-V server/core. We encourage you to stay tuned as we ship more details around availability of the programs.
