Unlock the power of cloud computing with AWS

Benefits of AWS

As a cloud partner, you are obviously aware that cloud is the future of computing.

With over 200 fully featured services available from data centers located around the globe, AWS provides exceptional scalability, reliability and security to its customers. By partnering with AWS, you can offer your customers the most advanced and innovative cloud technology that enables them to grow and transform with ease.

Let’s explore some of the key features and benefits of selling and implementing AWS solutions. 

Build a profitable public sector business with AWS

State and municipal governments everywhere are allocating their budget towards solutions that produce total cost of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI). To tackle projects that directly impact society, they are adopting technology-driven initiatives which include sustainability, environmental, social governance and smart city-focused challenges. AWS’s cloud capabilities and data sovereignty can help you increase operational efficiency by leveraging and driving profitability for your public sector business.

Extensive functionality

AWS provides a vast array of services, including infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, databases, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data lakes and analytics and Internet of things (IoT).

With AWS, you have access to a wide variety of purpose-built databases that are designed for different types of applications. This allows you to choose the right tool for the job while also reducing costs and optimizing performance. Furthermore, AWS makes it easy and cost-effective to move existing applications to the cloud, as well as providing the ability to build almost anything imaginable. This versatility provides options with robust functionality for businesses at all levels of cloud adoption.

Large community

With millions of users and countless partners worldwide, AWS has built a sizeable and active community which includes startups, businesses and public sector organizations.

The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a key component of this community and consists of thousands of systems integrators, independent software vendors (ISVs) and consulting partners. 

Secure and flexible

AWS is a highly secure and flexible cloud computing environment. Its core infrastructure is designed to meet the most stringent security requirements of highly sensitive organizations such as global banks and military organizations. AWS also provides a robust set of cloud security tools, including over 300 security, compliance and governance services and features that can help secure your cloud environment. 

AWS's commitment to security is further reinforced by its support for 98 security standards and compliance certifications. Additionally, all 117 AWS services that store customer data offer encryption capabilities, which means that you can encrypt your data at rest and in transit. AWS's security architecture is designed to protect data, applications and infrastructure so you have complete control over security posture in the cloud.

Fast-paced innovation

As a reliable cloud provider that offers cutting-edge technologies, AWS provides businesses with the opportunity to experiment and innovate more quickly.

AWS first introduced serverless computing in 2014 with the launch of AWS Lambda. This allowed developers to run code without provisioning or managing servers and gave them computing power without infrastructure management. 

Another innovative technology is Amazon SageMaker, a fully managed machine learning service that enables developers and scientists to use machine learning without any previous experience. This technology is essential for businesses that require the power of machine learning to transform their operations.

Operational expertise

For mission-critical applications, trust in the operational expertise of AWS. 

With over 16 years of experience, AWS has been providing reliable, secure and high-performance services to millions of customers worldwide. Its broad array of services and tools enable you to manage your infrastructure more efficiently. 

Monitoring and administration tools, automation capabilities, APIs and numerous security and compliance features (like access restrictions, encryption and data protection) are all included. 

AWS has extensive experience operating at scale, delivering proven, highly available services for even the most demanding workloads. This allows you to focus on your core business objectives without having to worry about the operational details of your infrastructure.

Global infrastructure

AWS offers one of the most extensive global cloud infrastructures and currently has 99 Availability Zones across 31 geographic regions with more regions planned in the future. 

This global network provides customers with the ability to choose the physical location of their resources and data and enables them to meet compliance and data residency requirements. 

The AWS Region and Availability Zone model was recognized by Gartner as the recommended approach for running enterprise applications that require high availability. With this global infrastructure, you can deploy your applications and services closer to your end-users, while also reducing latency and improving performance. 

Additionally, AWS offers a range of edge locations to improve the delivery of content and applications and has more than 450 Points of Presence in over 90 cities globally. This allows you to deliver your content and applications with lower latency and higher performance.

Benefits for end users

Migrating to AWS allows your customers to fully take advantage of AWS’s clout in the cloud in several ways. It enables your customers to:

  • Reduce costs with a data-driven migration assessment
  • Be more agile in the cloud
  • Improve security and resiliency with security best practices
  • Leave obsolete hardware behind and modernize the IT infrastructure
  • Consolidate data centers and improve operational efficiency
  • Accelerate digital transformation with flexible, forward-looking infrastructure

AWS was named a leader in Gartner’s 2022 Cloud Infrastructure & Platform Services (CIPS) Magic Quadrant for the 12th year in a row. This is a testament to AWS's solid reputation, reliability and quality of its services.
