The Azure Marketplace operated by 21Vianet is a unified display portal for the products and services of Microsoft partners (within this article, the scope of Azure Marketplace is limited to mainland China).It provides Azure customers with diverse services through Azure Partners, including stand-alone virtual machines, ARM (Azure Resource Management) solution templates, and customized services.Service providers must be registered as a legal entity in mainland China in order to get their registration approved.

In principle, Azure Marketplace only requires a minimum amount of service provider data to be retained. Service providers can modify all of this information on the Cloud Partner Portal.
