As part of safe digital transformation initiatives, Aquia has been recognized for its demonstrated technical expertise and commitment to architecting, delivering, and securing cloud workloads for businesses in the public and private sectors.
Aquia Inc., a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Company (SDVOSB), announced today that it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) and the AWS Public Sector Partner (PSP) Program. Aquia Inc. specializes in cloud and cybersecurity professional services.
The APN is a global network of AWS Partners that collaborate on projects to develop, market, and sell client goods. The PSP Program helps AWS Partners grow their public sector businesses by ensuring that their sales, marketing, finance, capture, and proposal criteria meet Amazon’s public sector requirements.
As an APN Select Tier Services Partner, Aquia has met rigorous technical and business criteria, demonstrated a high level of technical and business proficiency, and has a lot of experience implementing client solutions on Amazon. As a participant in the PSP Program, Aquia is recognized as an Amazon Partner providing cloud-based solutions with experience supporting foreign governments, non-profit organizations, and the space industry.
The chief technical officer and co-founder of Aquia, John Sasser, was a major supporter of the APN and had previously worked for the Amazon Professional Services business.
“During my time at AWS, I got to see first-hand the critical role APN Partners play in empowering AWS customers to use the cloud safely and efficiently,” said Sasser. “I’m proud that Aquia can bring our unique combination of cybersecurity, infrastructure, and software engineering skills to the table to help AWS’s commercial and federal customers.”
Aquia is not only recognized for its expertise with AWS and cloud computing as a consequence of joining the APN, but is also better equipped to support its clients, partners, and the greater cloud computing community thanks to increased access to useful resources, other APN Partners, and Amazon.
As an APN member, Aquia joins a network of 100,000 AWS Partners from more than 150 nations that collaborate with Amazon to offer cutting-edge solutions, overcome technical obstacles, close agreements, and add value for their respective clients.
