Toronto, Canada, November 27, 2017 – Carbon60 Networks, a leading managed cloud and infrastructure hosting service provider, today announced it has achieved the Standard Tier as a Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN). This demonstrates that Carbon60 meets the necessary criteria for AWS technical certifications and accreditation combined with customer success in the design, implementation and on-going management for solutions powered by AWS for customers that leverage the support of Carbon60 to manage their critical cloud workloads.
“Organizations of various sizes in the private and public sector in Canada are searching for optimal hybrid cloud deployments built with security and governance to run the technology infrastructure that powers their business,” said John Witte, President and CEO of Carbon60. “This year Carbon60 made a concerted effort as a business to invest in our people by expanding our AWS technical and business skill set to guide and support customers that need help to modernize their infrastructure using the appropriate cloud models.”
“Businesses continue to accelerate migration of workloads to the public cloud and AWS remains the default choice for many,” say Phil Shih, Managing Director of Structure Research. “But taking full advantage of AWS – both the economics and the technology – requires deep understanding and knowledge of the extensive tool sets Amazon provides. This can be overwhelming to the uninitiated and underscores the need for managed service providers like Carbon60 that have the scale, skills and experience to help organizations get through all this complexity and produce positives outcomes on the cloud.”
Managing AWS solutions is not new to Carbon60. Prior to AWS launching in Canada, Carbon60 deployed the Toronto 2015 PanAm and Parapan American Games web infrastructure using several cloud origins including AWS and Carbon60, combined with a secure perimeter to thwart expected attacks. More recently, Carbon60 leveraged AWS to deploy a scalable web platform for a significant global fundraising lottery e-commerce engine with agility and security as the key drivers to optimize the end-user experience.
