Connectria’s Managed Amazon Web Services Undergoing Rapid Growth

Achieves Amazon Advanced Consulting Partner Status In Less Than A Year

ST. LOUIS, MO. (November 10, 2014) – St. Louis-based Connectria Hosting, a global managed and cloud hosting provider, today announced it has achieved the level of Amazon Advanced Consulting Partner due to the rapid growth of its Managed Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Connectria formally launched its Managed AWS last October during AWS re:Invent 2013 after a number of months of alpha and beta testing with existing customers. Since then, Connectria has experienced strong customer growth for its Managed AWS solutions, and has invested in its AWS engineering and support organization to support the demand.

The growth in Connectria’s Managed Amazon Web Services has been so successful that in less than a year Connectria has achieved Advanced Consulting Partner status with Amazon. In order to achieve Amazon Advanced Consulting Partner status, a partner must exceed significant monthly revenue thresholds, have a substantial number of customer references, and possess a large number of business and technical accreditations.

Whether an existing AWS user or someone new to AWS, customers such as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, ATSG Corporation and Adeptia have been drawn to Connectria for several reasons; Connectria’s expert knowledge of managing and supporting AWS environments on a 24/7 basis, Connectria’s ability to support not only AWS but a customer’s entire application stack, and Connectria’s No Jerks Allowed® customer-centric model that ensures every customer has a great support experience.

“We are very excited about our Managed AWS business,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “It’s become one of the fastest growing segments of our business, and Connectria is clearly addressing an unfulfilled need with our Managed AWS solutions. Running production environments in AWS is very challenging, and it requires highly skilled staff, sophisticated tools, and proven support processes. Unlike other companies that are trying to provide AWS managed services, Connectria has been providing superior managed services across a wide range of technologies since 1998. When we decided to add Managed Amazon Web Services to our portfolio, we were able to leverage our proven processes and highly skilled engineering capabilities to ramp up quickly to address the growing market demand.”

Connectria will be exhibiting at AWS re:Invent 2014 and will be highlighting its Advanced DEVOPS Integration, Advanced 24/7 Monitoring and Management (including recently added New Relic to its portfolio) as well as its longstanding Windows and Linux expertise. For those attending AWS re:Invent 2014, please visit Connectria at Booth # 204. Go Code. We’ll run your AWS™.
