Dubai, UAE, 1st March, 2023 – Mindware today announced it has earned the Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure 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.
This level distinguishes channel partners that have met the stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as passed a third-party audit of their migration practices, earning them this Azure specialization.
More and more companies seek to modernize their applications and take full advantage of the benefits that cloud computing can deliver. The end-of-support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2002 R2 (plus upcoming end-of-support for Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2012 R2 in October 2023) will continue to increase the need to find partners with skills to assess, plan and migrate their existing workloads to the cloud.
“The achievement of this Microsoft Azure Specialization is a confirmation of our capabilities at Mindware to successfully plan and deliver complex cloud migration projects,” said Silmi Khanfir, Director of Cloud and XaaS at Mindware. “Together with our partners and Microsoft, we are working to help customers transform their businesses, and we’re delivering impactful, human-centered solutions to the market every day.”
Andrew Smith, General Manager, Partner Program Management at Microsoft added, “The Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure Specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to migrating Windows-based workloads over to Azure. Mindware 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.”
