Continent 8 Technologies has strengthened its cloud offering to operators and suppliers as it achieves Microsoft Silver Partner status for two competencies: Datacenter and Application Development.
As part of the Microsoft Partnership Network programme, it allows for companies to undergo various tests and “close scrutiny” to deliver its software, solutions and support based on Microsoft technologies.
To achieve this status, the company completed official training tracks and exams, as well as having to meet various performance requirements.
On the status upgrade, Justin Cosnett, chief product officer at Continent 8 Technologies, said: “Our cloud offering continues to develop, and I’m delighted that Continent 8 has joined the Microsoft Partner Network having achieved Silver Partner status.
“A big thank you to the team involved in obtaining this accreditation. The certification acknowledges our proven expertise in delivering quality cloud solutions to our customers.”
In obtaining Silver Partner status, Continent 8 is now considered part of a group of partner network members that have “proven expertise in delivering quality solutions”, according to Microsoft.
As a result, Continent 8 will augment its existing cloud offering with Microsoft Azure Stack, initially offering Azure Stack HCI. This will allow partners to refresh their virtualisation host using a hybrid and hyper-converged solution integrated with Azure.
Michael Tobin, founder and CEO of Continent 8 Technologies, added: “Achieving Silver Partner status with Microsoft is a strategic step for Continent 8 and forms part of continued efforts to be the leading multi-cloud solutions provider to organisations in the global gambling industry.”
