For the second consecutive year, Lunavi (formerly Green House Data) from Cheyenne, Wyoming, was awarded Microsoft’s Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP). The provider of digital transformation consulting and managed IT services has earned this select partner distinction for its leading Microsoft Azure expertise.
The Expert Managed Service Provider certification is the highest distinction Microsoft Partners can achieve for Azure and is awarded to a highly select set of partners with the demonstrated expertise and capabilities to help customers take full advantage of the Microsoft Azure suite. Lunavi is only one of approximately 85 partners worldwide to earn this distinction.
Created in 2018, the Azure Expert MSP certification distinguishes providers that have demonstrated expertise in transitioning operations to the cloud, modernizing applications, and ensuring information security. The certification audit process measures managed services capabilities including staff aptitude, customer support process, documentation, system architecture design, and customer-based evidence.
According to Microsoft, when organizations see the Azure Expert MSP logo, they can be confident that provider is among the most capable and highly skilled Azure providers in the world. Whether you are working on modernizing apps, entire datacenter footprints, or hybrid cloud environments, Azure Expert MSPs have proven capabilities to help navigate an enterprise through its unique IT journey.
In addition to its Azure Expert MSP status, Lunavi holds 13 Microsoft Gold competencies and has quadrupled its Microsoft certifications over the last three years to 55. These distinctions would translate into added value for customers by ensuring they have ready access to knowledgeable, experienced experts who can help them navigate and leverage resources from across the vast Microsoft solution landscape.
The hundreds of employee hours required to pass specific certification and exam requirements, as well as partner support and performance thresholds, would represent a significant investment by Lunavi to continuously provide customers with the enhanced expertise, end-to-end capabilities and additional support and training that is exclusive to Azure Expert MSPs. Lunavi is also a Microsoft Gold Partner and VMWare Cloud Verified partner.
“The audit required to become a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP is intensive. It provides our team the opportunity to showcase our proficiencies in IT modernization, cloud migration, and information security while supporting critical legacy enterprise applications within Azure,” said Thomas Burns, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and co-founder of Lunavi. “We are honored to be working with Microsoft to help companies embrace cloud technology, grow their businesses, and thrive in 2021.”
