Hosting Controller Inc. a validated Microsoft Solution Vendor for Exchange 2010 SP2 earns distinction and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada — April, 24, 2012 — Hosting Controller Inc. today announced that its cloud hosting automation solution has been validated by Microsoft for Exchange 2010 SP2 and it has also attained Silver ISV and Software Development competencies.

According to Microsoft “Using the on-premises version of Exchange to provide a hosted Exchange solution requires some unique considerations and specific configuration changes in order to configure a multi-tenant hosted solution. Microsoft provides guidance for control panel vendors to assist them in developing solutions that are supported.”  Microsoft says “In order for multi-tenant Exchange solution to be considered fully supported, a host must follow all the guidance in published Microsoft documentation. The easiest and quickest route to support for most hosters, though, is likely be through engaging with a hosting automation vendor whose solution adheres to the guidelines.”

Hosting Controller is an automation solution that Microsoft has reviewed and found to comply with guidance produced by Microsoft to offer Exchange in a Hosted Multi-tenant cloud based environment. Hosting Controller uses only documented and supported processes and methodologies in its solution.
