United Kingdom, 18th March 2011 – Full Circle Technology Limited (“The Full Circle”) announced today that three of their existing clients had been part of the pre-launch early adopter trial campaign for Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011, which Microsoft announced late yesterday as now generally available.
Reuben Cook, Founder of The Full Circle commented: “As a Microsoft partner who’s a keen early adopter – we were one of two UK partners in the Essential Business Server TAP in 2008-09, and following that the launch of Windows Server 2008 R2 – we are always interested in opportunities to get involved in new product launches.
We are now delighted to announce that we successfully enrolled three of our customers into the pre-launch early adopter program for Windows Small Business Server 2011, which we understand is more than any other UK partner”
Cook added: “We nominated three customers some six months ago, and we were delighted when Microsoft confirmed that all three would take part in the trial. Our first client deployment was for Verona Pharma plc, a London based but globally working drug discovery / life science business that we have provided managed IT services for since 2006 when we built a complete greenfield solution based on SBS 2003 allowing them to grow rapidly with heavy SharePoint use for their genuinely global workforce.”
“We then added Talking Tables, a fast –growing, fun and fresh UK based party and giftware designer and manufacturer. They too needed a short-cut to leading edge technology in order to meet their growth needs and global working.”
Maurice Martin, Director, Server & Cloud Platforms, Microsoft UK added:
“Over the past six months, The Full Circle has participated in the Microsoft Early Adopter Programme for Small Business Server 2011. It has successfully deployed SBS 2011 Standard into two customer environments and, looking forward, it will also be deploying SBS 2011 Essentials, a new cross-premise cloud-facilitated server, into a third customers premises later in the year.”
Cook concluded: “And finally we introduced a South London based Estate Agency, who acknowledged the need to upgrade in order to support the expansion of their business from 2 to 3 sites, and from 15 to 20 staff, which was why we brought them to the Windows Small Business Server early adopter programme – they have been accepted for the Essentials version of the product due to be released in the coming weeks”
