The Instillery earns Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization

21 August 2020

The Instillery today announced it has earned the Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization, a validation of a solution partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and expertise in migrating Windows Server and SQL Server-based workloads to Azure.

Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their migration practices, are able to earn the Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Azure advanced specialization.

As companies look to modernize their applications and take full advantage of the benefits that cloud computing can deliver, and with the recent end-of-support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2, they are looking for a partner with advanced skills to assess, plan, and migrate their existing workloads to the cloud.

“Following The Instillery’s announcement as Aotearoa New Zealand’s Azure Migrate partner of the year, we’re absolutely stoked to have earnt the Windows Server and SQL Server Advanced Specialisation. This advanced specialisation is reflective of our unique partnership with Microsoft New Zealand, our immense skills, the calibre of our national team, proven experience and relentless dedication to instilling the power of the world's leading technology into the bloodstream of Kiwi businesses and government agencies.” - Mike Jenkins – CEO & Founder of The Instillery

Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. added, “The Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to migrating Windows-based workloads over to Azure. The Instillery clearly demonstrated that they have both the skills and the experience to offer clients a path to successful migration so that they can start enjoying the benefits of being in the cloud.”
