What Is a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP)?
A Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) is far more than just a reseller of Microsoft Cloud products. A CSP needs to demonstrate technical expertise in Azure clouds solutions. When you purchase cloud services from a CSP, you are not just getting the product, but also the expertise and reliable support you will need to ensure that product is best serving your business.
What Is Tier 1 vs Tier 2 Microsoft CSP?
A Tier 1 Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) is a direct provider of Microsoft products, working directly with Microsoft on behalf of your business. Tier 2 CSPs are indirect partners, working through a third-party Microsoft distributor. Becoming a Tier 2 CSP is easier and faster than becoming a Tier 1. That's because a Tier 1 CSP must meet stringent requirements and show a level of expertise with Microsoft products far beyond a Tier 2 level.

A Direct Line To Microsoft
When you purchase your Azure Cloud Solutions from a Microsoft Tier 1 Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) you can be assured that the highest level of expertise and experience is going into designing and supporting your cloud services.
With a Tier 2 CSP, businesses purchase their license from the third party and get support from that third-party instead of Microsoft. With a Tier 1 CSP like SkyTerra, licenses are directly tied to Microsoft from procurement through support, allowing us to have a direct line to Microsoft to leverage their expertise and assistance for our clients when needed.
A Tier 1 CSP offers the following benefits:
- Single point of contact for all licensing and support
- Strategic optimization of your cloud investment
- Scalable solutions customized to your business
- Support that is superior in both our expertise and our commitment to customer service
