Datapipe Named Winner of Microsoft’s Most Innovative Data Platform Offering Award

2017 Microsoft Cloud & Hosting Summit award recognizes Datapipe’s full suite of data services on Microsoft’s SQL Server.

Jersey City – May 11, 2017 – Datapipe, a leader in managed cloud services for the enterprise, announced today that it has been named a winner of Microsoft’s Most Innovative Data Platform Offering award. Presented at the 2017 Microsoft Cloud & Hosting Summit, the annual award recognizes the partner who saw a substantial consumption increase of Microsoft SQL Enterprise and provides their customers with a full suite of data services on Microsoft SQL Server.

As database workloads grow, SQL Server offers nearly bottomless capacity to accommodate inactive data that businesses rarely use or access. This reduces the strain that certain workloads can create for on-premises servers. SQL Server offers users easier workload mobility between data centers, private clouds, and Microsoft Azure, which benefits enterprises with mission-critical capabilities to achieve scale, security, availability, and high performance for data-heavy workloads. Datapipe was recognized with this year’s award due to the fact its SQL consumption has increased 20 percent year-over-year and the consumption of SQL Enterprise among its customers has grown nearly 70 percent year-over-year.

“With the ever-increasing amount of information organizations must store, we’ve seen an influx in demand for solutions that store data in a way that is both cost-effective and scalable,” said David Lucky, Datapipe Director of Product Management. “This recognition speaks to our best-of-breed data platform service offerings and the hybrid cloud database solutions Datapipe deploys to drive enterprise cloud-first strategies.”

Aziz Benmalek, vice president, Worldwide Hosting and Cloud Services, Microsoft Corp. said, “Datapipe continues to deliver flexible solutions that combine Microsoft technologies with its unique expertise and services. We congratulate Datapipe on this achievement and for the outstanding value it continues to provide for our mutual customers.”

Throughout the past year, Datapipe has increased its data platform service offerings. As a Microsoft Gold Data Center and Cloud Platform Partner, Datapipe has expertise in SQL Server, as well as deep database and data services experience.
