Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow.

 

Explore how millions of customers are currently leveraging Amazon Web Services cloud products and solutions to build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability.

Why should a customer move their Amazon Web Services spend to a channel partner?

The top five challenges that end users have from dealing directly with AWS are:

 

  • Un-organised Amazon Web Services infrastructure
  • Outdated AWS infrastructure
  • Not leveraging Amazon Web Services pricing models for cost optimisation
  • Inability to accurately deliver departmental chargeback
  • Paying in USD on credit cards

By moving billing to a channel partner, you can resolve these challenges, plus see further benefits that will enable lower costs and leverage more from the Amazon Web Services. Such as:

 

  • Receive billing in GBP
    • Removes USD exchange rate costs
  • Receive invoices and billing reports for each department
    • Deliver correct department chargeback
  • Leverage credit line with the partner
    • No more credit card billing
  • Put security and control policies around spend
    • Remove any unsecure “Shadow IT” created by departmental spend
    • See all spend by account/department via a single easy to use platform
  • Realise cost savings via partner assessment services
    • Look for efficiencies in existing services
    • Find opportunities to provision Reserved Instances (RI’s)
    • Identify new workloads to migrate
  • Create a plan to migrate further workloads to Amazon Web Services
    • Realise further cost savings
    • Innovate at speed and get to market quickly
