After evolving its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model into a consultative, hybrid multi-cloud sales approach last year, managed hosting company Codero is now celebrating the successful migration of more than 1,000 servers and 500 customers to Microsoft Azure in 2018.
Codero’s evolving go-to-market strategy is now focused on helping clients architect, implement and manage their optimal IT using a combination of managed public cloud resources and dedicated servers. To support this move, in January 2018, Codero joined the Microsoft Azure Cloud Solution Provider Program and certified its team to manage Azure-based services. Codero also provides Managed AWS solutions to its customers.
Soon after joining the Microsoft Azure Cloud Solution Provider Program, Codero began working with existing customers to migrate from other hosted cloud environments onto Microsoft Azure. According to Microsoft, 95 percent of Fortune 500 companies use Azure, which provides hundreds of tools and solutions for storing and analyzing data, meeting compliance needs, building cloud-based applications, and more.
AI, IoT, DevOps, Data Analytics
“Azure is one of the top cloud platforms in the world and offers our clients an approachable path to incorporating emerging technologies like AI, IoT, DevOps, and advanced data analytics,” said Ric Riddle, Chief Revenue Officer of Codero.
“Early in our partnership with Microsoft, we recognized that our client base would be best served by operating on Azure in many cases, and have since had a remarkable year helping 500-plus clients modernize by migrating to Azure. We are proud of the relationship we’ve built with Microsoft and thrilled we’re now able to deliver Azure’s leading-edge services to our clients.”
Codero also recently announced it was chosen by Microsoft as one of a select group of Datacenter Optimization Partners to pro-actively support and manage Azure SQL Database Managed Instance as part of a pilot program.
