Rackspace Managed Hosting received the Microsoft Gold Certification Partner accreditation for its expertise in Microsoft Hosting, making it one of only six Application Infrastructure Providers (AIPs) in the world with this top tier designation.
To achieve certification Rackspace passed rigorous evaluations by certified, independent auditors who determined that we deliver the highest level of fully managed services available on the Microsoft platform.
The Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program provides recognition to companies providing Hosting and Application Services that have demonstrated a consistent, high quality delivery of solutions built on Microsoft technology and framework.
Most importantly, our distinction as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner means we receive emerging products and technologies while they're still in the development cycle.
This early access allows us to work with our customers on platform upgrades and technology testing months before public release.
