What are Managed Amazon Web Services?

Intelligent cloud adoption at scale

With data traffic exploding, customer expectations rising, disruptive competitors emerging, and cost pressures intensifying, the move to cloud is critical for achieving agility and the pace of innovation required to be successful in today’s changing market.

But it’s not always straightforward. Firstly, there’s an infrastructure challenge to underpin global and consistent application performance in the cloud. Secondly, there are cloud security and compliance considerations. Finally, there’s the skills shortage, exacerbated by tensions between creating the new cloud operating model and resourcing the management of traditional IT.

Our focus is on intelligent enterprise cloud adoption at scale. We’re bringing together our unparalleled global infrastructure capabilities with cloud-native partner expertise from Amazon Web Services. Driven by software-driven insight, we’ll focus on enterprise cloud enablement through a proven, outcome-based approach.

How does managed AWS work?

Our  strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services focuses on networking, security, and managed AWS services to transform enterprise cloud adoption at scale.

We're an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner with a roadmap to achieve Premier Partner by 2020. We’ve also achieved AWS Networking Competency with our Direct Connect offering and offer re-sell of AWS globally. We recently hosted the largest AWS partner training event in EMEA with over 180 attendees and have AWS certified Solutions Architects available globally to support your cloud migration.

Managed AWS features:

We’re committed to delivering the best hybrid cloud solutions on the market. Our Managed AWS service gives you:

  • BT / AWS Direct Connect - the internet doesn’t always provide the connectivity you need for your cloud-based services. BT / AWS Direct Connect provides secure, reliable and high-performance connectivity directly from your MPLS network into AWS
  • Our Cloud Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) - this is all about Managed Detection and Response, which combines threat detection, incident response and collaborative threat intelligence. It enables security operation centre (SOC) teams to effectively detect and remediate cyberattacks of all types
  • private clouds across your business - our Cloud Managed Services are platform-agnostic across any public or private cloud. We offer you fully integrated services, so we can not only assess and migrate your systems from your data centre to the public cloud, but can also offer managed services on those systems.
