Smart421 appointed AWS Direct Connect Solutions Provider
11 January 2012 - Ipswich, UK
Smart421 announces today that it has been appointed an AWS Direct Connect Solutions Provider by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the global leader in Cloud Computing. This accreditation opens new revenue opportunities for both firms and positions Smart421 as the only UK company able to architect, build and deliver Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and application layer solutions in the AWS Cloud as well as provision and manage connection services that allow businesses to bypass the internet when accessing AWS’s Cloud in the European Region.
Robin Meehan, Chief Technology Officer of Smart421, said: “This particular move with Direct Connect builds on all the work we have been doing over the last 12 months to help major UK enterprises on their Cloud adoption journey. It adds another important capability that allows us to continue to provide enterprise-grade cloud services to our customers whilst providing even more control over how those services are accessed.” He added, “We partner with AWS because our experience shows us that AWS is still the largest and most credible provider of Cloud services recognised by our customers, and their pace of managed innovation continues to be extraordinary.”
Smart421’s strategy is to sustain business growth by providing relevant technological change through its consultancy, integration and managed services portfolio and to offer its existing customers an enlarged set of information and communications technology (ICT) services as well as to build its future client acquisition strategy.
