By Dux Raymond Sy, CTO, AvePoint Public Sector

The new partnership between AvePoint and Rackspace – which we launched this week from the electrified halls of Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014 in Washington, DC – provides Rackspace customers the ability to access enhanced hybrid and cloud-based environments.

Whether your organization is interested in going all in with the cloud or leveraging a model that combines both cloud and on-premises options, the combination of AvePoint’s award-winning SharePoint management software and Rackspace’s expertise in cloud and managed hosting will deliver the flexibility and custom SharePoint experience your business requires to exceed its goals. Both organizations have deep histories in delivering success with Microsoft technologies for customers around the globe and are ready to help your business truly maximize the value of its SharePoint investment.

So why should you be excited about the partnership? Here are three important reasons:

Best of Breed Products

More than 13,000 customers worldwide rely on AvePoint’s solutions to simplify the deployment, monitoring and enforcement of SharePoint governance policies while integrating cloud computing as specific business needs dictate. Rackspace is now offering AvePoint’s data protection, reporting and content management solutions to new and existing customers. With these tools at their fingertips through the fully integrated DocAve Software Platform, administrators can ensure SharePoint is protected and managed according to their company’s specific service level agreements while saving time to focus on what matters most – enabling users to work better together. Keep an eye on this blog in the coming days as some of my AvePoint colleagues will offer a deeper dive into each solution.

Unrivaled Support

Rackspace is famous for giving customers its patented brand of Fanatical Support, providing access to teams of experts such as Microsoft-certified professionals who are ready to put their expertise to work and help accelerate success. We couldn’t agree more with this philosophy, as we at AvePoint are also committed to providing the highest quality, 24×7 support to customers and believe that our success can only be achieved from their complete satisfaction. With a focus on customer service at the core of both companies, businesses can rest assured that we will work tirelessly to meet their needs, answer their questions, and ensure their environment is optimized for business success. Because, in the wise words of our new partners at Rackspace: Anything less is unacceptable.

Experience and Expertise from Renowned SharePoint Thought Leaders

At AvePoint, our history with SharePoint dates all the way back to 2001 when the platform was known as Tahoe. Supported by our team of Microsoft-certified engineers and developers, our products have continually expanded and evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of SharePoint users worldwide. Since then, we’ve grown to become the established global leader in enterprise-class cloud management, governance and compliance software solutions for SharePoint and other next-generation social collaboration platforms. As the world’s leader in hosted and managed SharePoint with more SharePoint MVPs on staff than any company, Rackspace is also renowned for its SharePoint expertise. When you engage Rackspace and AvePoint, you’re working with two companies that truly know SharePoint, which allows you to bring that knowledge, history and experience to your own company’s use of the platform.

When the best of two worlds combine, customers can only benefit, and this is just the beginning of a very good thing. On behalf of all of us at AvePoint, we look forward to teaming up with Rackspace to provide you and your organization with the SharePoint hosting and management solutions you need to collaborate better than ever before.
