Continent 8 Technologies has improved its cloud offering to operators and suppliers by becoming a Microsoft Silver Partner in two areas: datacenter and application development.
It permits organisations to pass several examinations and “close scrutiny” as part of the Microsoft Partnership Network programme in order to supply software, solutions, and support based on Microsoft technology.
The company has to complete approved training tracks and exams, as well as meet specific performance requirements, to attain this designation.
Justin Cosnett, chief product officer at Continent 8 Technologies, commented on the status upgrade: “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.”
As a Silver Partner, Continent 8 has joined a select club of Microsoft partners who have “proven expertise in delivering quality solutions,” according to Microsoft.
Microsoft Azure Stack
As a result, Continent 8 will add Microsoft Azure Stack to its existing cloud offering, starting with Azure Stack HCI. This will enable partners to renew their virtualisation host by integrating a hybrid and hyperconverged solution with Azure.
Continent 8 Technologies’ founder and CEO, Michael Tobin, 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.”
