Press release March 21, 2017
Fixstars Solutions, Inc. demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.
Irvine, CA, USA — March 21, 2017 — Fixstars Solutions, Inc., a global leader in providing multi-core CPU/GPU/FPGA acceleration technology, today announced it has attained a Gold Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
Based on multi-core acceleration technology, Fixstars Cloud Solutions has proven to contribute to not only improved performance and reduced processing time, but has also provided a reduction in the amount of money spent on cloud services. Last year, we moved our service one step further, and announced “Cloud Cost Saving Services”. In this service, we will evaluate and optimize a client’s application free of charge until we can demonstrate a cost reduction in their cloud services. If there are no cost savings, Fixstars will not charge any service fees. In a successful case, we optimized a cloud application in the life science industry and achieved a cost reduction of almost 90%.
“This Microsoft gold Cloud Platform competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft’s products and services,” said Akihiro Asahara, CEO of Fixstars Solutions, Inc. “We plan to accelerate our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors for their business demands.”
“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated a deep expertise and commitment that puts them at the top of our partner ecosystem,” said Gavriella Schuster, general manager, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners’ proficiency of the latest Microsoft technology is instrumental in helping customers continue to drive innovative solutions.”
