dinCloud, a cloud transformation company, recently was selected as a finalist in the 2013 Microsoft (News - Alert) Partner of the Year Awards. The company was the only U.S. partner to be recognized as a finalist in the Cloud Partner of the Year.
dinCloud is a cloud transformation company that helps organizations rapidly migrate their IT infrastructure to the cloud to embrace this new, expanding computer trend. The company basically has four product areas: hosted virtual desktops, hosted servers, hosted storage for disaster recovery/business continuity and its orchestration platform, dinManage. Its hosted virtual desktops are run from a private virtual data center and allow employees or contractors to log in from a laptop, desktop, iPad or Android (News - Alert) device and have access to the same workspace regardless of what device they are using, according to the company. The hosted virtual desktop is in the hands of the firm using the service, and virtual desktops can be easily added, changed or managed in real-time.
“In general, SMBs face business challenges including high demand for keeping the lights on, too many pain points with having to deploy, maintain, and manage their PC fleet in-house, and expensive to maintain, aging IT infrastructure,” said Kevin Schatzle, CEO, dinCloud. “Utilizing Microsoft products helps us to reduce our customers’ overall technology spend, increase their flexibility, scalability, and user efficiency, while helping them manage their IT operations. We are excited to be named the North American finalist for Microsoft’s Cloud Partner of the Year in SMB.”
“We are pleased to recognize our 2013 Partner Award finalists for their dedication in solving today’s most vital technology challenges facing our mutual customers,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “Their unwavering commitment to quality and innovative solutions earns their place among our best Microsoft partners.
