Canonical recognized as a 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Winner


LONDON — July 8, 2021 — Canonical, the publishers of Ubuntu, today announced it has been named a winner for a 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Canonical and Microsoft launched Ubuntu Pro in 2020 to give customers a seamless experience, combining the infrastructure of Azure with the security and compliance features of Ubuntu, the world’s most popular Linux for cloud environments.

“By teaming with Microsoft, we’ve been able to help the increasing number of organizations that want to migrate to Azure through Ubuntu,” said Daniel Bowers, Canonical VP of Cloud Alliances. “Being named a Microsoft Partner of the Year winner is a wonderful validation of the work we’ve been doing together to help businesses of all sizes achieve their digital goals, with no compromises on security, support, and efficient management of workloads.”

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognizes Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 4,400 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. Canonical was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services.

“I am honored to announce the winners and finalists of the 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards,” said Rodney Clark, corporate vice president, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief, Microsoft. “These remarkable partners have displayed a deep commitment to building world-class solutions for customers—from cloud-to-edge—and represent some of the best and brightest our ecosystem has to offer.”
