Get Windows Azure for Free
If you are an MSDN subscriber:
- Sign up for free Windows Azure subscription from the Azure MSDN subscriber benefits page.
- Watch the video Activate your MSDN Azure benefits for a step-by-step process of activation.
If you are not an MSDN subscriber, no problem!
- You can get a Windows Azure 3-month free trial to help you get started with a no strings attached subscription. Read more details on the free trial at 3-Month Azure Free Trial.
- Follow the step-by-step instructions on how to sign up for a free trial.
- Watch a small video on Azure Free Trial.
In both cases you will need to use a credit card. The card is used solely to prove you are over 18 and a real human. Windows Azure has a spending cap in place for MSDN and trial accounts that will keep you from spending more than your free allocation of resources, so you credit card WILL NEVER BE CHARGED.
