Azure Gold Partner in Cloud Competency
To achieve Gold Status in the Cloud Competency category, Foghorn DevOps engineers had to validate the depth and breadth of their Microsoft Azure expertise. Areas of testing included server admin, application and cloud lifecycle optimization.
“With AWS Premier Partner status, growing Google Cloud platform capabilities, and now Azure Gold, Foghorn clients can expect well rounded and objective counsel as we steer them towards an agile and aligned future,” shares Alex Roosakos, CEO of Foghorn Consulting.

Azure is always part of that conversation and many organizations are going “all in” with Azure with great results.
