Managed hosting and cloud services provider Datapipe has partnered Microsoft to drive cloud adoption among enterprises in Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
Datapipe has been recognised by Microsoft as a Direct Partner in its Cloud Service Provider (CSP) programme in Hong Kong.
"We think of a Cloud Solution Provider as an extension of our Microsoft team. It's critical that our Cloud Solution Providers have high capability standards to manage the cloud lifecycle and provide a great customer experience," said Flora Yu, Cloud and Enterprise Business Group Lead at Microsoft Hong Kong.
"The Cloud Solution Provider programme puts our partners at the centre of the customer lifecycle with direct provisioning, billing and support of Microsoft cloud services. By joining the programme, partners can create differentiated offers for our mutual customers, while helping them on their cloud journey," added Yu.
Following the collaboration, businesses on Microsoft's cloud platforms can now tap into the managed services of Datapipe from billing and provisioning to providing 24 by 7 customer support.
"As Microsoft continues to invest heavily in its cloud platforms, we're pleased to be a partner on that journey. Microsoft Azure and Office 365 are used by millions of businesses across the continent, and several thousands in Hong Kong," said Colin Chan, Vice President and General Manager of Datapipe in Asia.
"While any business can use Microsoft's cloud platforms easily, they don't always have the right skills to ensure best practice deployment, migration and management - that's where Datapipe comes in," added Chan.
