Solvaria Among Top One Percent of Microsoft Elite Partners

Richmond, Va., – Solvaria, Richmond’s only IT consultancy focused exclusively on database services and strategic IT leadership, has achieved Microsoft’s Gold Competency in Data Platform as of Q1 2017. The Gold Competency in Data Platform is Microsoft’s highest level of certification and is only awarded to companies that have demonstrated expertise in SQL Server administration and in building enterprise-scale data solutions both on-premises and in cloud environments. Businesses that achieve this level of competency are among the top one percent of Microsoft elite partners worldwide.

As a Gold Certified Partner in the Data Platform competency, Solvaria has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and proven ability to meet customers’ needs. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including access, training, and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the channel.

As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Partner status, Solvaria had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner’s capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution. Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry. Previously a Silver Partner in Data Platform, the new Gold Partner relationship provides Solvaria with more benefits that will enhance the offerings and services to clients.


“Attaining the Microsoft Gold Partnership is a great accomplishment for Solvaria,” said Greg Samuels, CEO at Solvaria. “Our company has greatly evolved in the past couple years, and this partnership proves we are headed in the right direction. We focus on the needs of our clients and the benefits of this partnership will allow us to provide more expertise and offerings to them.”
