Cloudnexa Designated a Top AWS Consulting Partner

By Paula Bernier

Amazon Web Services has designated cloud managed service provider Cloudnexa as one of its 22 Premier Consulting Partners in the world.

To receive this status, Amazon Partner Network Consulting Partners need to gain proficiency in a specific specialization or use case. In the case of Cloudnexa, that means specialization competency in Managed Services, Microsoft SharePoint and Exchange from AWS. Cloudnexa also has expertise in delivering secure and ITAR Compliant services on AWS.

"The entire Cloudnexa team is honored to receive acknowledgement and recognition of our commitment to AWS for our expertise and successes as an AWS partner," said Cloudnexa CEO Joel Davne.  "As the growth in cloud services continues, Cloudnexa is there, helping clients quickly and efficiently achieve their business objectives in the cloud.  Cloudnexa is the only managed service partner in the market offering Cloud Management as a Service, uniquely enabling customers to consume critical services, the same way they consume cloud, in a pay as you go model.  This has been a key growth driver for our business and relationship with AWS."

Cloudnexa, which was established in 2012, has made a lot of headway in the past few months. In November the company announced it had raised $2.3 million from Milestone Venture Partners, as well as Gabriel Investments and Ben Franklin Technology Partners. At the same time, Cloudnexa revealed it had hired on former Active Power manager Lisa Brown as vice president of marketing and sales operators, and former CybeData Technologies manager Shaun Enright, who is vice president of general manager for the public sector. Also in November, Cloudnexa disclosed the location of its new corporate headquarters, which is at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia at 1413 Langley Ave.

One of the areas of cloud-based managed services is managed security services. According to an Infonetics Research report issued in April, the global cloud and CPE managed security service market grew 12 percent in 2012 to reach a valuation of $13 billion.

“Buyers are moving to managed security services to deal with increased attack volume and complexity, manage security product sprawl, deliver consistent security for a distributed workforce and device population, and provide security for cloud infrastructure,” said Jeff Wilson of Infonetics.
