AWS India partner network registers 80% growth

AWS India, the cloud business of Amazon, has registered 80% growth in its AWS Partner Network (APN) to help it expand its business across the country, said Amazon Internet Services Managing Director Bikram Bedi.

In an interaction with DH, Bedi said the rapidly expanding AWS Partner Network (APN) is made up of tens of thousands of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Systems Integrators (SIs) around the world.

AWS SIs include Infosys, TCS, Wipro, HCL, Accenture, PwC, Blazeclan, Minjar, Frontier, Intelligrape, Progressive, Cognizant, and Team Computers. They help enterprises migrate to AWS, deploy mission-critical applications on AWS, and are providing a full range of monitoring, automation, and management services for customers’ AWS environments.

AWS ISVs in India include SAP, Microsoft, Adobe, Druva, Freshdesk, Manthan, Indusface, Newgen, RAMCO, Seclore, Mediology, Mithi Software, Vinculum, Infor, Splunk, and many others who are providing software solutions that are either hosted or integrated with AWS.

Currently, AWS India has over 75,000 active customers and more customers are added every day. The company also launched the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region, its sixth in Asia Pacific (APAC), in middle of last year.
