Aquilent Named Amazon Web Services "Premier Consulting Partner"

Aquilent, a recognized leading provider of Mobile, Web, and Cloud solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government, has been named Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partner for a second year. With this designation—held by only 15 companies worldwide, and only six public sector providers—Aquilent customers will continue to benefit from its deep investment in, and knowledge of, both the AWS and Federal cloud environments.

AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partners help customers design, architect, migrate, or build new applications on AWS, according to Amazon. AWS Premier Consulting Partners are companies that “have distinguished themselves by investing significantly in their AWS practice, providing exceptional customer service, [and] helping a large number of significant customers run their applications on top of AWS,” according to Amazon.

This is particularly relevant for Federal government customers, as Federal agency missions are often complex and require a level of expertise far beyond that of an ordinary cloud provider. With Aquilent as their AWS Premier Partner, Federal customers get a government-focused cloud partner to help solve their unique Federal challenges, support their overall federal cloud strategy, and ensure long-term success.

“We are thrilled to be able to continue providing best-in-class cloud services to the federal government as an AWS Premier Partner,” said Aquilent CEO David Fout. “Our customers are the true beneficiaries of this designation, as we can continue to provide highly trained AWS experts and offer a broad range of cloud services based on each agency’s mission and needs.”

Aquilent has been an AWS Premier Partner since the inception of the program. The company touts a staff of more than 40 trained AWS professionals, with 100 percent of the Aquilent Cloud Solutions group formally trained and/or certified on AWS.

"With such significant benefits, like cost-savings and flexibility, the future of federal government technology is in cloud computing,” said Mark Pietrasanta, Chief Technology Officer at Aquilent. “This AWS Premier Partnership means our customers are in the best possible position—right there with us, at the forefront of technology, with the market leader.”

With its AWS Premier Partner designation, Aquilent will continue to offer customers a full range of federal cloud solutions through every level of cloud engagement:

  • Cloud Reseller – For government customers looking to buy a cloud solution, Aquilent offers multiple contract vehicles, enabling easy access to AWS.
  • Cloud Broker/Cloud Enabler – For government customers considering bringing a cloud solution into their organization but need help choosing the best type of service for their needs, Aquilent staff is knowledgeable on the AWS suite of solutions and able to articulate the benefits of different AWS options.
  • Cloud Transition – For government customers who have decided to move to a cloud environment but need help moving, Aquilent cloud experts helps customers get ramped up quickly with the initial set up and migration.
  • Cloud Managed Services Provider – For government customers who need ongoing help managing their cloud environment, Aquilent offers in-depth expertise in cloud services and best-of-breed experience with a range of government customers.
  • Custom Solutions Provider – For government customers who need a complete custom cloud solution, Aquilent has expertise in all cloud-associated services and serves as a complete solution provider.
