Datapipe, a provider of managed cloud services for the enterprise, has been named a winner of Microsoft’s Most Innovative Data Platform Offering award. Presented at the 2017 Microsoft Cloud & Hosting Summit, the annual award recognizes the partner who saw a substantial consumption increase of Microsoft SQL Enterprise and provides their customers with a full suite of data services on Microsoft SQL Server.
As database workloads grow, SQL Server would offer nearly bottomless capacity to accommodate inactive data that businesses rarely use or access. This reduces the strain that certain workloads can create for on-premises servers.
SQL Server would offer users easier workload mobility between data centers, private clouds, and Microsoft Azure, which “benefits enterprises with mission-critical capabilities to achieve scale, security, availability, and high performance for data-heavy workloads.”
Datapipe was recognized with this year’s award due to the fact its SQL consumption has increased 20 percent year-over-year and the consumption of SQL Enterprise among its customers has grown nearly 70 percent year-over-year.

Throughout the past year, Datapipe has increased its data platform service offerings. As a Microsoft Gold Data Center and Cloud Platform Partner, Datapipe has expertise in SQL Server, as well as deep database and data services experience.
