AWS gives Powerupcloud premier consulting partner status

Powerupcloud, a technology consulting company focusing on Cloud, DevOps, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions, announced today that it has gained premier consulting partner status in the AWS partner network (APN).

The APN premier consulting partner designation recognises the top APN consulting partners globally that have distinguished themselves by investing significantly in their AWS practice. 

Companies that have gained this status have demonstrated deep expertise in delivering customer solutions on AWS. 

They have also helped a large number of customers run their applications on AWS. 

To be eligible, APN members must first have achieved APN advanced consulting partner status and met additional qualitative and quantitative requirements.

Powerupcloud achieved this status in just under two years, upgrading from an advanced consulting partner status. 

Powerupcloud has two key AWS competencies, in DevOps and Big Data.

Powerupcloud's CEO Siva S welcomes this achievement as an important milestone for the company.

Siva says, “Since our inception in June 2015, we have focused on delivering value to our customers by building innovative cutting-edge solutions on the cloud. 

“AWS Premier Consulting Partner status is a recognition of our culture of commitment to delivering technology results for our customers.”

“Powerupcloud's expertise in well-architected, framework-based data centre migrations and 24/7 advanced managed services, is now complemented by new vertical expertise in Big Data analytics, and AI solutions."

With over 120 employees within 30 months of its inception, Powerupcloud is one of the fastest growing born-in-cloud services companies.

Amazon head of Channels Amitabh Jacob says, “We are delighted that Powerupcloud has become a premier AWS consulting partner. 

“With more enterprises and SMB companies seeking help to rapidly architect, build, migrate, and manage their workloads to the AWS Cloud, we will continue to engage more deeply with these partners to ensure that our customers are matched with the right expertise and skills needed to ensure a seamless migration. 

“The premier tier in the AWS consulting partner program provides partners with more in-depth training, access to AWS Professional Services, and additional market development funding to help them better advise and enable our customers migrating complicated workloads to AWS cloud."
