LONDON, September 19, 2019 — Cloudreach, a leading cloud solutions provider, announced today that it has been named AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner of the Year in the UK & Ireland.

Each year Amazon Web Services (AWS) recognizes partners who play key roles in helping companies drive innovation and build solutions on AWS. The winner is chosen based on a range of factors including total revenue contribution, net new certification count, and proven technical expertise and customer success.

“We’re thrilled to be recognised as the APN Consulting Partner of the Year in the UK and Ireland,” said Chris Bunch, Cloudreach’s General Manager in EMEA. “As one of the first cloud-native partners of AWS we have extensive knowledge of the platform, and a proven record helping enterprises realize the benefits of the cloud through AWS. As of September 2019, 300 Cloudreach staff hold more than 700 AWS certifications.”

Cloudreach is recording hyper growth fuelled by an unprecedented demand from customers such as Eurostar, The Economist and Channel 4.

“Our migration from a fully hosted environment to AWS was both seamless and transformational. This dynamic infrastructure allowed our business objectives to be executed at an accelerated rate,” said Brenden McPartlan, VP of Operations and Infrastructure, Digital solutions of The Economist’s engagement with Cloudreach.

“The APN Consulting Partner of the Year award recognises Cloudreach’s leadership and the role the company plays in helping customers drive innovation, and build solutions on AWS,” said Niko Mykkänen, Head of Channels and Alliances, Amazon Web Services EMEA. “Cloudreach is a born-in-the-cloud partner who has embraced specialisation and collaboration with proven expertise in migration, machine learning, data and analytics, and security for enterprises, and in highly regulated industries.”

Cloudreach recently announced the next evolution of Cloudamize – its cloud management software platform which supports the entire cloud journey from migration planning, to building applications and managing multi-cloud environments.

Our approach is to codify our consulting expertise into Cloudamize so we can provide even more value to even more customers as they create their business transformation strategies and adopt AWS services.”
