Cloud Services

Lighthouse Technology Partners earned “2014 Microsoft NY-Metro Region Cloud Partner of Year” by reaching the highest levels of both technical competency and customer satisfaction. As a testament to our on-premises legacy infrastructure practice, last year we were named, “Microsoft 2013 East Region Top VAR of Year.” After helping hundreds of customers move to Microsoft Cloud solutions, we are one of the most experienced Microsoft Partners in the Northeast. Customers range from smaller to quite large: commercial, nonprofit and private education.

Providing on-premises, cloud-only and hybrid cloud solutions, our practice revolves around the Microsoft Cloud Platform including Office 365, Azure and inTune. Hybrid cloud setups give organizations the flexibility of the cloud while maintaining the on-premises environment they have already invested in. Lighthouse can help your organization transition to the cloud in this staged manner. By setting up a hybrid deployment your existing hardware investment stays operational while end-of-life servers are migrated to the Azure cloud. Our services are delivered on a project basis, or as a managed relationship agreement.

We are the first to offer turnkey Azure hosted session-based RDS solutions utilizing ExpressRoute which eliminates all practical latency.
