Altaro Earns Multiple Microsoft Certifications

Microsoft Gold Application Development competency achieved; Altaro Hyper-V Backup now Microsoft certified for Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2.

Altaro Software, a fast growing developer of backup solutions for Microsoft Hyper-V and file servers has earned the Microsoft Gold Application Development competency, demonstrating a “best in class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft customers’ needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top one per cent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft Gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Altaro also confirmed its flagship product, Altaro Hyper-V Backup, is now Microsoft certified for Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2. These certifications identify software solutions that meet Microsoft standards for compatibility and recommended practices with the respective Windows Server operating systems. Certified applications have been tested by Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) using technical specifications and tools required by Microsoft.

“Achieving Microsoft’s Gold Application Development competency is a clear vote of confidence from Microsoft and more importantly our own customers, demonstrating that our products provide them with tangible results within their environments” comments David Vella, CEO of Altaro. “Having been one of the first Hyper-V backup solution providers to offer support for Windows Server 2012 R2, I’m delighted for Altaro Hyper-V Backup to earn these certifications. It’s another strong signal that we’re providing solutions our customers believe in and trust.”
