RapidScale Earns Microsoft Azure Expert MSP Status, Demonstrating Exceptional Proficiency in Delivering Azure Managed Services

This distinguished qualification further solidifies RapidScale's position as a leading managed cloud service provider.

RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 14, 2023 RapidScale, a leading managed cloud solutions platform, achieves Microsoft's Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP) status, a distinction earned by select partners with proven expertise and specialization in delivering Microsoft Azure services. This certification differentiates best-of-breed Azure managed service providers in the market, helping customers connect with the right partner to meet their needs. RapidScale is one of only 50 partners in the United States to hold this partner status among 400,000+ global Microsoft partners.

In addition, RapidScale is one of only three Azure Expert MSP partners in the United States that can provide fiber connectivity directly into the Azure backbone network through their Cloudport product. Differentiating itself in the market, RapidScale provides high-speed, direct, secure connectivity into the public cloud footprint with carrier-grade reliability, uniquely combining world-class public cloud management with optimized network operations.

This achievement showcases our ongoing efforts to grow our expertise in IT modernization and strong commitment to delivering specialized services to our customers.

Microsoft partners with this certification status must pass a rigorous, third-party audit process of their IT service management capabilities (300 + readiness hours across the entire business) and meet Microsoft's strict requirements related to expertise levels, consistent solution experiences, and customer satisfaction.

"We're incredibly proud of the team for their cross-functional effort to achieve this status.
