AWS PartnerST. LOUIS, MO. (October 17, 2013) – Connectria Hosting, the gold standard in cloud monitoring and management, today announced the launch of its Managed Amazon Web Services (AWS).

As an AWS Consulting and Channel Reseller Partner, Connectria has begun implementing 100% secure, highly available, managed AWS solutions all backed by Connectria’s superior 24/7 support. Connectria provides and supports a full complement of AWS products, including AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and AWS Simple Storage Service (S3), among others.

By using Connectria’s Managed AWS solutions, Connectria’s customers will enjoy the on-demand, “pay-as-you-go” services of AWS, along with Connectria’s comprehensive managed services and support. Connectria’s experienced, AWS certified engineers will provide a host of AWS services including AWS architecture support, 24/7 AWS monitoring and tech support, AWS data backups, AWS security management, and AWS cost and performance optimization, among many other services.

“We are thrilled to be an Amazon Web Services Consulting and Channel Reseller Partner,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria’s President and CEO. “Connectria’s Managed AWS is a strong complement to our existing managed cloud portfolio. Connectria has always been technology agnostic, and we can now provide our customers greater flexibility regarding the type of cloud they require as well as how and when they want it delivered.”

Waidmann further added, “We believe Connectria’s Managed AWS will be a good fit for organizations looking to implement AWS, but don’t know where to start, as well as for organizations already using AWS but need help monitoring and managing their environment(s). AWS provides many powerful features, but AWS environments can require a significant amount of expertise to implement and manage them. In either case, Connectria provides the experience and 24/7 support customers need to successfully operate secure, reliable and cost-effective AWS solutions.”

Connectria Managed Amazon Web Services will be highlighted during AWS re:Invent 2013 – the largest gathering of developers and technical leaders from the AWS community. Please stop by Connectria’s booth, #909 or visit us at www.connectria.com/cloud/managed_aws.php.
