Cloud essentials and cloud accelerate program step by step enrollment guide

Enrollment Process: Cloud Accelerate vs. Cloud Essential Requirement

  • The primary difference between the enrollment process for the Cloud Accelerate Program and the Cloud Essential Pack is as follows:

  • Online Application Form: Partners are required to complete and submit an Online Application Form in “Step 2” to qualify for the Cloud Accelerate program.

  • Requirement Status: The additional requirements for the Cloud Accelerate program, displayed on the Qualify tab, are manually set by the Regional Service Center upon review and approval of the application form. Therefore, these will not be checked until this process is completed.

  • Eligibility: The Cloud Accelerate program is open to all partners who can meet the requirements – they do NOT have to be a managed partner.

  • Opting In: If a Partner has accepted the terms and conditions of the Cloud Program upon qualification for the Cloud Essentials Pack, the Partner does not have to accept these again upon qualification for the Cloud Accelerate program.

NOTE: The Step-By Step guide focuses on the detail processes for Step 2 of the enrollment process only. Step 1: Accessing the Portal and Preparing to Enroll and Step 3: Accessing Benefits are essentially the same. Please refer to the detail steps in the Cloud Essential guide for detail steps for those processes.
