TORONTO, Nov. 18 /CNW/ - Ceryx Inc, the leading managed service provider of enterprise-grade messaging, collaboration and unified communications, has been named Hosting Solutions Partner of the Year for the 2nd year in a row. Microsoft made the announcement at the 2009 Microsoft Partner Network IMPACT Awards.
The IMPACT Awards were established to recognize and award excellence within the Microsoft technology partner community as well as the innovative solutions and value they deliver to customers.
This year Ceryx was recognized for the value of their flexible Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and Office Communication Server (OCS) platform. This platform has been distinguished by its ability to handle the level of sophistication required by the enterprise, such as advanced privacy and security, operational choices, the ability to map to existing business processes and legacy applications, tight integration to other applications, as well as a range of deployment options.
"Once again, I'm very pleased to receive this recognition from Microsoft and the clear confirmation of the value that partner-developed solutions play in the market," says Gus Harsfai, CEO and President of Ceryx Inc. "Microsoft's cloud solutions are well suited for the portion of the market with simple requirements but Ceryx has developed its offering for the segment of the market that wants some of the cost efficiencies associated with cloud computing without giving up the sophistication typical of on-premise solutions."
Part of the recognition Ceryx received was for its success in migrating complex Lotus Notes environments to Ceryx's outsourced platform. As a Microsoft Gold Partner of Excellence with competencies in Network Infrastructure, Security, Mobility, Hosting and Unified Communications Solutions, Ceryx has established expertise in almost every e-mail and messaging platform currently in use.
"Many of the Notes customers we are working with are finding significant cost savings and enhanced functionality by switching to Exchange and outsourcing the management to Ceryx. They are still retaining enterprise level integration and high availability that is an absolute requirement but they are seeing a 25-30% reduction in costs," says Harsfai.
