Advania is one of only twenty IT companies in the world handpicked by Microsoft to join its Cloud Solutions Provider Program and one of hundred picked for the Cloud OS Network. This means that Advania is one of very few to have both. Advania and Microsoft will work closely together in setting up cloud services for data storage and hosting of IT infrastructure and software.

Available in the Nordics 

“We are both proud and delighted “comments Gestur G. Gestsson, the CEO of Advania. „Being a part of this elite group is a great honour for us. This enables us to offer these advanced cloud solutions throughout the Nordic region“ he adds.

Advania leads in the Microsoft cloud

“Advania is the largest partner of Microsoft in Iceland and the Partner of the Year in Sweden. This is certainly great news and is an important milestone for Advania and again demonstrates yet again its leading role in its partnership with us“ says Heimir Fannar Gunnlaugsson, Country Manager for Microsoft Iceland. 

Customer Benefits

Advania can now offer its customers Microsoft cloud services in a new way. Cloud services enable companies to economize their IT costs while increasing their flexibility and scalability. Microsoft cloud solutions include the hosting of IT systems, data storage and access to ERP systems such as Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Office 365. 

According to Gestur the benefits for customers are numerous. „We are now able to offer our customers subscriptions directly which means that IT costs become an operating expense instead of a capital expense. For example, if a customer needs to hire a lot of summer interns it can easily scale up its subscriptions as needed and then reduce their number at the end of summer.“
