By Thomas Trappler. Since 2014, the UC wide agreement with Microsoft (2018.000231) has made Microsoft’s Azure products available for use under terms and conditions aligned with UC’s needs, policy, and the law.
Effective July 1, 2020, as a result of negotiations, UC receives an additional discount off standard Azure pricing. This discount is the result of the ongoing successful partnership between the UC IT community and UC Procurement Services.

What Are the Agreement Details?
- Three-year discount term, effective July 1, 2020
