US Cloud offers one comprehensive Microsoft Enterprise Support plan, and we charge a flat rate for support hours, meaning you buy only the hours you need. This model is similar to your legacy Microsoft Premier Support pricing model which makes future support costs more predictable than MS Unified. Your rate is locked-in for the entire 12- month contract term, allowing you to add up to 50% more hours with no penalty. Hours can be used for either reactive or proactive support with no restrictions.
All US Cloud Microsoft Enterprise Support clients receive 15 minute Rapid Response for Azure + all Microsoft technologies and incident severities. You also receive the industry’s first financially backed Service Level Agreements (SLA) for response times and ticket escalation. The following Microsoft Unified Enterprise Support services are also included: Escalation management, IT health assessments, Cloud assistance, Technical Account Manager (TAM – not the weaker CSAM), Advisory support and Technical training.
As mentioned, you may use your support hours fluidly for either reactive or proactive services including: Server migration, Security, MS Teams, Power Apps, Analytics and more. Enhanced Microsoft Enterprise Support solutions available as add-ons include: Mission critical, Designated Support Engineering (DSE), Azure Event Management, Microsoft 365 Engineering Direct, and Developer support.
Designated Support Engineers (DSE’s) help keep your enterprise operating at peak performance with expert support for your core Microsoft technologies. DSEs reduce costly IT service disruptions by identifying critical recurring issues and implementing changes to prevent future outages. DSEs can also supplment and enhance your operational resources as well as drive important deployments and migrations.
US Cloud Designated Support Engineers are offered at a flat rate, regardless of what Microsoft technology they’re supporting and with signifcantly lower hour minimums than MS Unified. This means you get on-demand access to expert advisory support for enterprise projects of all sizes. And unlike Microsoft, our DSE rate is all inclusive – we don’t disguise a mandatory 30% upcharge for “Technical Account Manager (TAM) or involvement.”

Savvy enterprise procurement teams have discovered they can slash their exploding Microsoft Unified Support spend while protecting their enterprise from significant projected MS support cost increases when looking at their enterprise’s 5 year Microsoft roadmap.
