Sol-Tec is delighted to announce that it has earned its Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialisation. 

This notable Microsoft accreditation serves to further demonstrate Sol-Tec’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and proven success in migrating Windows Server and SQL Server-based production workloads to Microsoft Azure.

Only Partners with an active Gold Cloud Competency are eligible to seek this advanced specialisation and Sol-Tec is incredibly proud to be among the first Microsoft UK Partners to successfully earn this title. 

Microsoft has set out stringent requirements to ensure that with this advanced specialisation, it identifies true experts in any given solution area, where high customer demand is evident. To this end, Sol-Tec had to clearly demonstrate its depth of knowledge in providing guidance on the various SQL migration options within Azure, actual experience of migrating and optimising Windows Server and SQL Server-based workloads to Microsoft Azure for its customers and it also had to meet defined Azure Consumed Revenue (ACR) performance thresholds. 

To validate its capabilities in all the above areas, a rigorous third party audit was the final phase of the review process for this specialisation, which Sol-Tec is pleased to say it passed with flying colours. 

Sol-Tec is truly proud to have this Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialisation under its belt, which will provide further assurances to its customers that they are working with a leading-edge, Microsoft specialist, capable of delivering high fidelity migrations to Azure. 

“Migration of Windows and SQL workloads to Azure is central to the cloud adoption framework that we advocate to our customers. Having Microsoft formally recognise our expertise in this area via this specialisation, is a testament to the hard work and quality of service our team deliver.”
