SendGrid in the Cloud with Microsoft Carly Brantz January 17, 2012 Partnerships, Product // SUMMARIES ?> Today, we are thrilled to announce our new SendGrid partnership with Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform. We are very excited about this partnership where we will be providing our industry-leading email infrastructure to all Windows Azure customers. As part of the initial sign up, we are including a free package with 25,000 free emails each month. Tens of thousands of companies and web developers currently use the Windows Azure cloud platform to build and deliver innovative web applications to their customers. Clearly, many of these applications rely on transactional email to confirm order purchases, send updates and notifications and confirm account details. Now, these developers can leverage SendGrid as part of the Windows Azure partner ecosystem and avoid the complexity of building and maintaining a proprietary transactional email solution.
