IRVINE, CA – February 24, 2016 – Recognized as one of the Top 100 Cloud Service Providers by Talkin’Cloud.com and one of the Top 15 Managed Service Providers by MSPMentor, Synoptek today announced that it has been recognized by Microsoft as one of only 18 approved partners who are members of the elite Microsoft Cloud OS Network (COSN).
According to a Microsoft statement, “The Cloud OS Network (COSN) is a strategic group of service providers that can deliver differentiated value-added services to end-customers based on the Cloud OS vision. COSN is a worldwide group of elite cloud service providers, partnering closely with Microsoft to offer technically validated, cloud-based infrastructures and application solutions. Members of this network combine Microsoft technology with their hosting expertise and geographic specialization to provide flexibility and choice for hybrid datacenter solutions.”
COSN – An Elite Group of Carefully Selected Microsoft Partners
Currently there are 157 approved members of COSN worldwide, and only 18 operating in the United States according to the COSN page on the Microsoft website. To become authorized, Synoptek underwent extensive auditing and technical scrutiny by third-party experts engaged by Microsoft to assure that they had the requisite quality of infrastructure and management in place to properly support an Azure-based environment.
Acceptance into the program enables Synoptek to add Azure services to their portfolio of cloud-based offerings for customers.
“Synoptek’s customers have come to expect a fully-managed reliable cloud platform. In layering additional security, compliance, and disaster recovery on top of Azure technology, we’re now able to deliver a complete cloud solution out-of-the-box,” said Miles Feinberg, Vice President at Synoptek. “Our customers choose us to gain confidence knowing that their infrastructure needs are met end to end – enabling them to focus on core business functions.”
Microsoft’s Cloud OS Vision
As stated in the Microsoft COSN Engagement Guide:
“The Cloud OS is Microsoft’s vision of one consistent platform for infrastructure, applications, and data across customer, service provider, and Microsoft datacenters. This vision helps companies realize a cloud-optimized business because it fulfills infrastructure needs from every perspective. What makes this model so unique is that end customers have the ability to deploy a true hybrid solution spanning on-premises private cloud, Microsoft Azure, and service provider-hosted clouds. Customers can make decisions about where to host services based on business needs rather than technology limitations. This enables better optimization of IT resources while providing limitless scale, compute, storage, and networking for the countless day-to-day needs of operations and the workforce.”
