London, UK (PRWEB) October 15, 2009
The Full Circle (http://www.thefullcircle.com), the Microsoft Gold Partner specialising in virtualisation and infrastructure deployments, announced today that it had secured Ascom Network Testing's (http://www.ascom.com) participation in the Windows Server 2008 R2 UK Early Adopter Program (EAP).
Ascom Network Testing is a global mobile data software systems provider. They offer test and measurement solutions to many of the world's largest mobile network operators, including Verizon, Orange, and T-Mobile.
The EAP enables selected partners to take part in co-funded consulting engagements to drive product deployments prior to full launch. This gives partners and customers strategic advantage while enabling Microsoft to develop public references for their marketing efforts.
Reuben Cook, Founder, The Full Circle, said, "We are delighted that Ascom Network Testing will be part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 EAP. We are confident it will offer tremendous value as it will enable them to reap the benefits that the new technologies can deliver to the business well in advance of their competitors. Windows Server 2008 R2 is planned for release October 22nd."
Kit Smithers, Chief Technical Officer, Ascom Network Testing Ltd, said, "We immediately recognised the benefits of participating in the program. We have a particularly strong interest in the benefits of virtualisation and consolidation, and look forward to enjoying the performance and flexibility benefits that it will give us."
Mike Peers, Channel Development Manager, Virtualisation, Microsoft said "The Full Circle have been an active partner on our Windows Server 2008 R2 Early Adoption Programme. The programme is designed to help partners gain early experience deploying Hyper-V, whilst also benefitting customers in the early adoption of the technology."
Cook concluded: "At first we saw Hyper-V as a component that could accelerate Ascom's internal solution development process. But it has quickly become apparent that Hyper-V could in itself become part of their client solution offering, due to the power, performance and stability it offers. It has been a great success."
