Cloud solutions distributor for managed services providers, Pax8, has signed a North American Distribution Agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Pax8 will use AWS to help North American MSPs construct flexible, scalable, and reliable public cloud applications. As of May 18, 2022, the solutions will be publicly available to Pax8 reselling partners.
“As a leading cloud marketplace for partners serving SMBs, Pax8 is thrilled to expand our multi-cloud management services through working with AWS,” said Ryan Walsh, Chief Operating Officer at Pax8. “With our technology, education, and enablement, we can help partners overcome the cloud management challenges around cost, as well as the risk of over-provisioning. We expect to see rapid adoption of public cloud in the SMB market across our ecosystem of partners and more than 200,000 businesses.”
Pax8 partners that wish to provide their clients with a secure, technologically advanced, scalable platform for developing their businesses will have access to some of the most popular items in the AWS library of consumption-based solutions.
“The work with Pax8 will open incredible opportunities for SMBs in the IT channel to scale their cloud-management strategies and grow their businesses with AWS,” said Jeremiah Jenson, Global Leader – Distribution at AWS. “We see tremendous opportunity for new and incremental revenue streams with the channel. The relationship with Pax8 is a testament to the value and opportunity we are seeking to provide the channel.”
Over 250 AWS Solutions Available
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) – With over 500 instances to select from, Pax8 partners may choose the CPU, RAM, and storage that best matches their workload demands. This cloud solution offers 400 Gbps ethernet networking.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) – Amazon S3 would provide the highest scalability, data availability, security, and performance for Pax8 partners that are ready to tackle big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and high-performance computing (HPC) applications.
“Our team is excited to see AWS being added to Pax8’s offering,” said Dan Johnson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at machineLOGIC. “With customers increasingly using multiple cloud providers to drive their businesses, partners have an opportunity to deliver multi-cloud solutions by leveraging AWS services for backup and disaster recovery, IaaS, cloud storage, and more. We’ve been AWS partners for many years, but we lacked solid go-to-market and training resources beyond what AWS could offer us. With Pax8’s proven track record on partner enablement, it will be great to see how Pax8 empowers partners as they adopt AWS to drive that multi-cloud strategy.”
