Atmosera seizes the Azure Cloud Solution Provider Program offer from Microsoft to accelerate the transformation to the cloud for its colocation customers.
It’s a common pressure point for many businesses. They evolve from owning, managing, and maintaining a set of servers, then build out and manage small on-premise data centers to run its workloads. Next, to support its business growth, it moves and expand its capabilities using a colocation environment. Now, managed service providers such as Atmosera are focused on helping its customers address their digital transformation needs for a modern infrastructure with geo-distribution, dynamic scaling, and better reliability by moving their workloads to Microsoft Azure.
Atmosera architects, deploys and operates public, private, and hybrid Microsoft Azure environments for customers across the United States and around the world. They deliver a scalable, reliable, and innovative spectrum of Azure solutions to companies and application developers globally who demand a modern, open, and flexible cloud service platform. Atmosera has developed a customer-proven assessment practice that ensures the accurate correlation between a customer’s needs and the optimal Microsoft cloud solution. Customers receive an expert cloud assessment, which delivers a clear roadmap with options to make informed decisions.
“Our success and industry tenure are a direct result of our core focus on customer outcomes, our employees, and innovation,” says CEO Jon Thomsen. “Many of our customers’ strategic IT objectives are to move their core business applications to a public cloud. We compared pricing, performance, strategic trajectory, alignment, partnership and more from the leading public cloud providers and we selected the Microsoft Cloud Platform, which has become 100% of our focus.”
“We built a 20-year success record rooted in Managed Services spanning colocation and hosting environments; it was a natural evolution to develop our expertise with hybrid cloud technology,” adds Scott Harvey, VP Engineering. “We were the first Cloud Solution Provider globally to deploy Azure Certified for Hybrid solutions with deployments in Europe, United States, and APAC regions.”
Along with earning the Azure Certified for Hybrid accreditation, Atmosera is a Microsoft Gold Certified Cloud Platform partner, Certified Cloud OS Network (COSN) provider, and maintains HIPAA/HITECH, HITRUST, PCI-DSS, IRS-1075, and SSAE-16 compliance accreditations. “These certifications provide our customers with the peace of mind needed to trust that we know what we’re doing,” notes Thomsen.
The Azure Cloud Solution Provider Program is a global initiative at Microsoft which targets service providers interested in migrating workloads from its data centers to Azure. Microsoft provides all the required services, tools, and training to help ensure the transition to Azure is efficient and repeatable for partners. The Azure CSP product portfolio includes Office 365, Dynamics 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, Azure, and other Microsoft online services for business.
“Atmosera really validates innovative services and opportunities by committing 100% to the Azure platform,” says Mark Rice, Microsoft General Manager, Managed Services Providers. “Our goal is to empower our partners and enable our mutual customers to transform. Atmosera is capitalizing on every opportunity to help these customers grow and achieve more.”
Atmosera has fine-tuned its transformation expertise with first-hand experience, in-depth training, and direct access to experts through the Microsoft DC migration program. Migration specialists at Atmosera help customers assess, migrate, re-platform, and properly operate Azure-based clouds and managed deployments to public, private, and hybrid clouds.
