Recognition for Cluster Reply for leading the way as a partner for Microsoft Azure and Cloud Computing
At this year’s Microsoft German Partner Conference in Hamburg, Cluster Reply was awarded the coveted Microsoft Cloud Service Partner Excellence Award FY 2011. Key to the award was the consistent integration of Microsoft Azure Cloud into Reply’s own company strategy and their proactive promotion and support of the concepts of Public Cloud and Azure. Together with its subsidiary Cluster Reply, Reply Deutschland AG has become a specialist in Microsoft technology and applications. Cluster Reply is Microsoft Gold certified and supports its customers in implementing the advantages of the latest Microsoft technology. Cluster Reply relies on Microsoft Azure Cloud in several projects. For example, Windows Azure was viewed as a success with the introduction of Sky TV to the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
According to Bernd Stopper, Director of Partner Strategy and Program “with Reply we are recognising a partner with the Cloud Partner Excellence Award who has consistently and successfully introduced Windows Azure and Public Cloud into its company strategy and has lead the way by “spreading the word” about both concepts".
"We are convinced of the advantages of cloud computing, particularly with regard to the outsourcing of data processing centres, platforms, software development and greater scalability. Particularly interesting is the introduction of Cloud for mobile applications (Apps) with the possibility of developing these devices independent of platform. That’s why we are promoting the use of Microsoft Azure Cloud and are very pleased with this award”, said Wolfgang Klein, managing director of Cluster Reply GmbH.
