OVERLAND PARK, KS – Codero Holdings, Inc. (Codero), a leader in managed hosting and technology enablement, has been chosen by Microsoft as one of a select group of Datacenter Optimization Partners to pro-actively support and manage Azure SQL Database Managed Instance as part of a pilot program. Managed Instance is a new resource type in SQL Database that streamlines the migration of SQL Server workloads and combines the best of SQL Server with all the benefits of a fully managed database service. This pilot is designed to accelerate SQL Server migrations to Azure SQL Database Managed Instance, the optimal destination in the cloud for businesses that have performance and latency IO requirements.

Customers who migrate to a managed instance will receive back-end management from Microsoft — including OS patches, redundancy, and high availability guarantees — while Codero provides pro-active, premium management to ensure each company’s database keeps up with organizational growth and ever-changing demands.


As a participant in the Microsoft Azure Cloud Solution Provider Program, Codero’s team is certified to manage Azure-based services, having already migrated 1,000-plus servers to Azure in 2018.

“We are well versed and experienced in architecting, optimizing, and managing Azure environments, and we’re ready to help customers achieve such an improvement in their database performance, reliability, and ROI that they notice a big difference in their day-to-day operations,” Codero Chief Revenue Officer Ric Riddle said. “It’s an honor that Microsoft has selected us as a trusted pilot participant, and we look forward to making lifetime believers out of many new SQL Managed Instance customers in the months ahead.”

As IT management becomes more challenging for time- and resource-strapped in-house IT teams, companies are migrating to managed solutions for systems they have traditionally hosted on-premise, including SQL Server. Azure SQL Database Managed Instance is highly compatible with on-premise SQL Server so that migration and onboarding are easier and less time consuming.

Once migrated, customers experience up to 30 times improved throughput and latency and up to 100 times faster queries and reports with in-memory technologies, according to Microsoft. The cloud-based model also brings dynamic scalability and up to 406 percent ROI versus on-premise or hosted databases.

About WordPress
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the use of thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is limited only by your imagination.
