Grazed from REAN Cloud

REAN Cloud, a global Cloud Systems Integrator and Premier Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN), achieved four new AWS competencies in Education, Security, Storage and Microsoft Workloads. These four are added to the five AWS competencies the company had already earned in Financial Services, Life Sciences, Government, Migration and DevOps. To gain each competency, REAN Cloud has had to demonstrate that it not only possesses deep expertise and experience with the AWS platform, it must deliver solutions in each of the areas mentioned seamlessly in the AWS cloud environment, providing specialized consulting services and helping enterprises adopt, develop and deploy complex projects on AWS.
REAN Cloud earned AWS Security Competency status in multiple security consulting categories: Governance, Risk, and Compliance and Security Engineering. This highlights the company’s strength, depth and expertise in areas of security and compliance – including FedRAMP security standards – and recognizes that REAN Cloud has already helped many customers with various aspects of IT governance, regulatory and compliance standards at scale.


To achieve AWS Storage Competency status, AWS requires that an APN member possesses deep domain expertise in one or more of the following core storage categories – Backup & Recovery, Primary Storage, Archive, or Business Continuance/Disaster Recovery (BCDR). Having developed innovative technology and solutions that leverage AWS services, REAN Cloud differentiates itself by exhibiting the required expertise in all of them.
“Demonstrating our command of multiple categories for both AWS storage and security really helps cement REAN Cloud’s status as one of the most skilled premier AWS consulting partners,” said Dan Connolly, EVP of REAN Cloud’s Customer Business Group. “As one of the first APN members to earn the AWS Storage Competency, we take pride in helping enterprises realize the full benefits of AWS Cloud storage.”
It was important for REAN Cloud to gain the AWS Microsoft Workloads Competency because many data centers run on Microsoft technology. Achieving this competency demonstrates how REAN Cloud excels in analyzing and managing Microsoft workloads – with a specific focus on workloads based on Microsoft Database Solutions – for large enterprises.
“A majority of data centers run on a version of Windows so in order to be considered a top choice to help leading companies migrate Microsoft-based apps to the cloud it was crucial to achieve the AWS Microsoft Workloads Competency,” said Sekhar Puli, Managing Partner at REAN Cloud.
Achieving the AWS Education Competency differentiates REAN Cloud as an APN member that has successfully delivered specialized solutions aligning with AWS architectural best practices to support the academic experience of teachers and learners and/or improve the operational needs of administrators. This designation recognizes that REAN Cloud has demonstrated technical proficiency in building solutions that support mission-critical workloads for education customers of all types: higher education, K-12, research and publishing.
“Educational institutions are a great fit for REAN Cloud’s portfolio because we are very comfortable working in highly regulated industries such as financial services, the public sector and healthcare,” said Sri Vasireddy, Managing Partner at REAN Cloud. "The AWS Education Competency highlights our commitment to provide our education customers with the same kind of bimodal IT managed services we provide for our enterprise customers.”
Achieving the four new competencies is just one way REAN Cloud has been recognized for its cloud expertise. Earlier this year REAN Cloud was included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers and more recently the company was named to CRN magazine’s 2017 Solution Provider 500 List.
The AWS Cloud is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
