Cloud Girls co-chairs co-author “Mapping AWS” article for Channel Partners Magazine
Laguna Hills, Calif. and Bellevue, Wash. (January 23, 2013) – Knowing how to procure cloud services for the enterprise can be mystifying and daunting. Itʼs not enough just to know storage and compute requirements. TeleProviders Director of Converged Cloud and Data Services Joanne Peterson and Nuvalo Principal Manon Buettner co-authored an article, “Mapping Amazon Web Services,” that examines the offerings of cloud giant Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“ʼBut while weʼve all heard of AWS, do we really know where it plays? More importantly, how do we intelligently compete with this offering?ʼ” the authors ask.
The fact of the matter is, our customers know what it is and are using it whether IT management knows it or not! Further, it is often considered the baseline by which other compute and storage alternatives are gauged. Our job as consultants and agents is to internalize the AWS offering and communicate to our clients where it makes sense to consider alternate private or public clouds based on their business, technical and cultural requirements.”
The article dives into the details of AWS product portfolio, strengths and weaknesses, terms and competitors. Organizations considering AWS may find this piece useful for understanding what aspects of business and technology requirements to consider, and what third-party software might be used to fill some of the gaps for certain enterprise environments.
