C24 strengthens partnership with Microsoft through Cloud OS Network

C24, a specialist applications hosting provider based in the Midlands, has been successful in joining Microsoft’s exclusive Cloud OS Network to deliver true hybrid cloud capabilities to UK customers.


Microsoft Cloud OS Network

The Microsoft Cloud OS Network is a select group of world class hosting providers, chosen by Microsoft to deliver Cloud OS – an enterprise cloud architecture that spans infrastructure, applications and data.  The Cloud OS Network delivers differentiated value-added services to end customers, based on the Microsoft Cloud OS vision.

In conjunction with Microsoft, C24 has developed a Cloud OS platform within their Midlands datacentre, which has been technically validated by Microsoft to deliver a range of hosting and application services based on HP infrastructure.

Customers can now consume private cloud services from C24, in addition to tapping into the flexibility and scalability that Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform offers.  Within the UK, there are currently less than 15 Cloud OS Network partners, of which C24 is now one.  This hybrid cloud model enables customers to consume public and private cloud services, delivered by a local, Midlands provider.

Head of Sales and Marketing at C24, David Ricketts, commented, “C24’s invitation to be part of the Microsoft Cloud OS Network is further evidence of our close partnership and commitment to working strategically with Microsoft over the long term”.

C24 is currently a Microsoft Gold Hosting Partner and joining Microsoft’s Cloud OS Network means that customers now have more choice than ever when choosing a cloud strategy for their business.  C24 offers clients a range of hosted cloud services, across Office applications through to Microsoft Dynamics AX and specialist ERP applications.

Paul Hemming, Managing Director at C24, said, “Many customers are now looking at how public cloud services, such as Azure, can help them to save money and resources across their business.  C24’s cloud offering through Microsoft’s Cloud OS Network enables customers to have more choice in deploying a true hybrid solution, leveraging C24’s Private Cloud and also Microsoft’s Azure services.”
