WatServ Earns Advanced Specialization for Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure

WatServ Earns Advanced Specialization for Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure

WatServ announced that it has earned the “Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure” advanced specialization, demonstrating the company’s extensive experience and knowledge in migrating and optimizing Windows Server and SQL Server-based workloads to Microsoft Azure.

This follows on the heels of WatServ’s achievement in May 2021 that saw it earn an advanced specialization for Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop.

To earn the achievement, WatServ was required to pass an intensive, third-party audit that evaluated all aspects of its Windows and SQL migration architecture and implementation practices, including the assessment, design, pilot, implementation and post-implementation phases. The company was also required to meet stringent criteria around competencies, customer success and staff skilling. Specifically, this meant that WatServ had to hold status as a Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform partner, as well as meeting the threshold requirements for employees having the Azure Administrator, Azure Data Engineer, and DevOps Engineer certifications.

This achievement demonstrates WatServ’s adherence to the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework foundations and protocols, which ensures a consistent methodology and process for Azure adoption aligned with customers’ expected outcomes.

“This is the second advanced specialization that our team has earned from Microsoft in the past few months. Demanding and prestigious, the specialization confirms our proficiency – both from a technical and process standpoint – when it comes to cloud migration and optimization,” said WatServ’s CEO, Dave Lacey. “We’re committed to enabling modern, high-value cloud technology solutions for our clients and this is another way we’re demonstrating that.”

Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief at Microsoft added, “The Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to migrating Windows-based workloads over to Azure. WatServ 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.”
