In July, it was my pleasure to recognize Rackspace as our Hosting Partner of the Year for 2012. Now I am even more pleased to announce Rackspace’s leadership in bringing Windows Server 2012 to the marketplace as an offering for their cloud customers. Rackspace has distinguished themselves by delivering innovative solutions and their steadfast commitment to customer satisfaction, exemplified by their aptly named “Fanatical Support.” With the recent release of Windows Server 2012, Rackspace is poised to offer their customers a cloud optimized IT solution that is scalable, flexible, and on an open cloud platform.
Here at Microsoft, we are excited to see Rackspace’s dedication to the early adoption of Windows Server 2012, the value and incentives they offer to their customers, and the continued building of successful businesses on top of Microsoft technologies. We congratulate Rackspace, for continuing to exemplify what an outstanding partnership with Microsoft can be.
