20 Jun Windows Azure Dynamics for GP and NAV
Windows Azure Dynamics is available for Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV deployments.
This offers another deployment option for Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV customers that want to host their ERP systems in the cloud. This allows customers to run their Dynamics systems on Microsoft’s infrastructure. But it does not mean that Microsoft is offering Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV directly to end users.
Unlike Microsoft CRM Online where Microsoft directly offers CRM and runs it on its infrastructure, Windows Azure Dynamics will only be available through certified Dynamics Partners. In the words of Paul White, Senior Director, Microsoft Dynamics ERP, “It’s important to note that there’s no change in our partner model here, meaning that Microsoft Dynamics GP and NAV continue to be available only through our partners, and not direct from Microsoft.”
Paul’s entire blog post is available here.
The advantage to hosting Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV on Windows Azure may be that users can rely on Microsoft’s experience and scale in offering and managing business solutions in the cloud.
RoseASP has been hosting Dynamics since 2000 in enterprise-class datacenters and will continue to do so. We will also offer Windows Azure Dynamics as an option to our customers. For more information, click here.
