Fully Managed® today announced the achievement of the Microsoft Gold Virtualization Competency, a new advanced designation available for leading Microsoft partners specialized in Microsoft Virtualization technologies. The stringent requirements for this new designation include:

  • Employ four unique engineers with relevant, virtualization-specific MCITP credentials, not assigned to any other gold competency.
  • Meet a minimum revenue commitment.
  • Employ one person who has passed the Microsoft licensing overview assessment.
  • Employ two people who have successfully passed the online sales and marketing competency assessment.
  • Provide five verifiable, virtualization-specific customer references.
  • Participate in the Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) Index.

"We are all in with Microsoft on their virtualization platform which is an amazing fit for the SMB space", said Chris Day, CEO of Fully Managed®. "We have had so many successes with Microsoft virtualization solutions, it was only logical for us to pursue this competency. I am incredibly proud of our team for their hard work in achieving this prestigious designation."
