Cloud services provider named finalist in Hosting category for new IaaS prior to its official launch
Sherbrooke, QC, July 15, 2014 — Cloud services provider SherWeb today announced it was named a finalist for the 2014 Microsoft World Hosting Partner of the Year Award. The announcement makes SherWeb the only Microsoft partner to achieve consecutive Winner-Finalist honors in the history of the highly competitive category.
SherWeb was recognized for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of global customer solutions based on Microsoft technologies. In 2013, SherWeb won the Microsoft World Hosting Partner of the Year Award for its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) bundle, which includes Exchange 2013, SharePoint 2013 and Lync 2013, along with a long list of value-added services such as free migration and round-the-clock customer support.
This year, SherWeb was selected from over 2,800 entries for its innovative new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering. Extensive benchmarking has shown that SherWeb Performance Cloud Servers are the fastest on the market today, allowing businesses to prevent server sprawl and failure with a virtual infrastructure that offers all the on-demand compute power they need in just a few clicks.
“I’ve been floored by the performance of SherWeb’s Cloud Servers,” says Colin Rowe, President of digital asset media firm, Archimedia. “My customers are primarily in the public, academics and business sectors, and they demand enterprise-grade speed and stability. SherWeb’s virtual servers allow me to compete with service providers of any size, and the cost beats many big-name cloud providers that don’t even compare in terms of performance.”
“The fact that SherWeb was named a 2014 finalist for our new IaaS offering prior to its official launch speaks volumes as to its market potential,” says SherWeb’s Co-founder and President Matthew Cassar. “SherWeb and Microsoft have a strong track record of simplifying IT for customers, and our new Performance Cloud Servers will change the Cloud landscape and market expectations of “high” performance.”
SherWeb is being honored this week (July 13-17) at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington DC. For more information about the event and this year’s winners, visit http://www.digitalwpc.com.
