Foster City, California, USA — June 25, 2012— Today, Janus Networks announced it has been selected as a finalist for the Microsoft Server Platform Partner of the Year Award.

“Thank you, Microsoft, for recognizing our hard work and efficient Hyper-V server platform solution. Janus Networks is honored to be a finalist for this year’s award.” -Nicholas Nye, Vice President of Operations

Awards were presented in multiple categories, with winners chosen from a set of nearly 3,000 entrants worldwide. The Server Platform Partner of the Year Award recognizes the partner that has delivered solutions enabling a customer to increase the reliability and flexibility of their server infrastructures, save time and reduce costs, and provide a server platform for a dynamic and efficiently managed data center. The winner used the Windows Server 2008 platform, technologies, and solution accelerators, including, but not limited to:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V
  • Windows HPC Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Web Server 2008 R2

The winner’s solution dramatically transformed a customer’s server infrastructure, resulting in higher levels of scalability, availability, and reliability, reduced IT labor or hardware costs, or streamlined overall operational efficiency.

“We are proud to recognize our 2012 Partner Award finalists for their outstanding commitments to solving customer challenges,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “Our partners are critical to our success as a company, and it is their creativity and innovative thinking in solving the unique needs of our customers that serves as the foundation for mutual, long-term success. We congratulate this year’s finalists on their achievements and look forward to following their continued success in the future.”

Janus Networks placed as a finalist for their work on a corporate server migration and upgrade to Microsoft Hyper-V. The upgrade reduced data center costs for their client because of Hyper-V’s virtual nature, and reduced support costs because Windows 2008 R2 includes support in their software package. Plus, the client’s system ran faster on the Hyper-V platform. Janus Networks provided training on the new servers and their client is very happy with the results.

The Microsoft Partner Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year.
