Ceryx named Hosting Partner of the Year at the Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards
TORONTO, November 17th, 2008 – Ceryx, the leading provider of secure and reliable hosted and managed Microsoft(R) Exchange, announced that it has been named Hosting Solutions Partner of the Year at the 2008 Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards. The sixth annual IMPACT Awards recognizes excellence within the Microsoft technology partner community as well as the innovative solutions and value they deliver to customers.
Within the Hosting category, this award carries particular significance as Microsoft has begun to put a strong emphasis on its Software plus Service strategy. Looking to expand their market reach and provide greater choice to customers in how they consume software services, Microsoft has acknowledged with this award Ceryx’s unique and complementary contribution to this strategy.
Ceryx, with its proprietary provisioning platform, has been able to successfully penetrate and expand into new markets, satisfying the needs of larger organizations and complex channel partners with an entirely hosted solution. “We are thrilled to be recognized by Microsoft for our innovations in the area of hosting,” says Gus Harsfai, President and CEO of Ceryx. “This recognition by Microsoft is further confirmation that hosted solutions are the new norm for application delivery, even for the large Enterprise.”
Ceryx stands alone in the hosting market through their development of an offering that exposes a broader range of features and functionality than is found in out-of-the-box solutions. By exposing significantly more ‘configurability’ options and making customizations to Hosted Exchange possible Ceryx has been able to meet the complex needs of larger organizations looking to reduce risk, cut costs and outsource their messaging to a reliable partner.
“As real leaders in their fields, technology partners like Ceryx continue to help customers optimize their business performance,” said Lora Gernon, Senior Director, Partner Group, Microsoft Canada Co. ‘Our annual IMPACT Awards celebrates top technology partners who have shown true passion through their tremendous service to customers and innovative solutions.”
Recently recognized by the Radicati Group as the top ‘trailblazer’ in their 2008 Market Quadrant, Ceryx is best known for their development of a geographically redundant Hosted Exchange architecture, providing real-time data replication to a secondary Tier 4 data center, over 500 miles away. This robust architecture allows Ceryx to provide a 100% uptime guarantee and a ‘near-local’ application performance that far surpasses the availability and performance of an on-premise solution.
