Beta

Beta is the point at which we are ready to open a release for any customer to use.


Beta customers must agree to applicable terms online.


Beta releases are mostly feature complete and are guaranteed to be released for General Availability.


No SLAs are provided. Technical support will be provided on a best effort basis by the product team and via online forums.
