By First Distribution Team | 0 Comments | 18 March, 2019
First Distribution, Africa’s leading Cloud distributor and Microsoft Indirect Provider, is offering cash-
back incentives to Azure resellers.

25 February 2019 – First Distribution is giving resellers even more of a reason to sell Azure by providing
access to two Microsoft cash-back incentives until 31 May 2019.
 Azure resellers will receive $500 back on their Azure spend when they add any Net-New Azure
customer that consumes $500 of Azure services.
 Azure resellers that scale a Net-New Azure customer’s Azure consumption to $5 000 will earn
$3 500 when that consumption is purchased by the reseller from First Distribution.
First Distribution will further provide a credit equal to 10% of consumption until 31 May 2019 for
tenants added in March 2019 for Net-New Azure customers that commence with First Distribution in
March 2019. The credit will be applied to each customer’s June consumption.
“Our goal is to offer our resellers the initial financial boost to move customer solutions to Azure,”
explains Natasha Bezuidenhout, Microsoft Brand Executive at First Distribution.
As an Indirect Cloud Services Provider, First Distribution distributes Azure across the African continent.
“We take the time to understand the specific goals, objectives and compliance requirements of our
partners and resellers,” says Bezuidenhout.
“With the launch of South Africa’s Azure Datacentres, resellers have an unprecedented opportunity to
offer customers a Public Cloud solution that is scalable, trusted, reliable – and now local.”
With 54 Azure regions and availability in 140 countries, Azure has more global regions than any other
Cloud provider—offering the scale needed to bring applications closer to users around the world,
preserving data residency, and offering comprehensive compliance and resiliency options for customers.
“We believe that this value proposition, coupled with our incentive programme, will help Azure resellers
drive new heights of digital transformation across the south African SME sector,” concludes
