July 14, 2014 – DiscountASP.NET, today announced it has attained a Gold Hosting competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
With over a decade of leadership in shared hosting on the Windows web stack, DiscountASP.NET has gained a reputation in being early adopters of new Microsoft technologies. DiscountASP.NET recently launched Everleap, their entry into scalable cloud hosting for websites and web applications which is powered by Windows Azure Pack.
“The Microsoft Gold Hosting competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology and the recent launch of our Everleap cloud hosting platform demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products,” said Takeshi Eto, VP Business Development at DiscountASP.NET/Everleap. “We’ll continue to strive to deliver shared and cloud hosting solutions that meet the needs of modern developers.”
“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”
Attaining the Hosting competency is exclusively for partners that specialize in hosting solutions and maintain their own datacenters or act as a reseller or agency of services hosted by Microsoft, providing agreed-upon service levels and customized hosted offerings and consulting for common customer scenarios. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software and support, partners help customers offset the cost of maintaining critical business applications with scalable hosting solutions.
The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
