Use TechNet to:

  • Evaluate full-version software to make informed purchase and deployment decisions

  • Access cost-effective resources to help plan and implement products

  • Find information, tools and support to help resolve IT challenges quickly

One subscription provides access to full-version software for evaluation, complimentary professional support calls, online training and technical library, beta software, plus ideas and solutions from peer experts to help you efficiently deploy, manage and support your Microsoft technology.

Microsoft is retiring the TechNet Subscriptions service. IT professionals that would like to purchase a new TechNet Subscription or renew an existing subscription may do so through August 31, 2013. Microsoft will continue to honor all existing TechNet Subscriptions. Subscribers with active accounts, including subscriptions that were part of Software Assurance Benefits, will continue to have access to their benefits until their current subscription period has concluded. For existing Software Assurance customers, this means they can continue to use their TechNet subscription until the end of the volume licensing agreements which their Software Assurance Benefits are attached to. After Sept. 1, 2013, TechNet will no longer be entitled as a Software Assurance benefit.
