Created in 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a collection of remote computing services that together make up a fully fledged cloud computing platform. The most central and well-known of these services are Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3. AWS allows for large computing capacity much faster and cheaper than building a physical server farm in-house. We have been utilizing the Amazon stack since late 2013 and now fully rely on it for all of our data center needs.\r\n\r\nRecently we were approved as an <a href="https:\/\/aws.amazon.com\/partners\/find\/partnerdetails\/?n=Pagely%20-%20Managed%20WordPress%20Hosting&id=001E0000013FevVIAS" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Amazon Advanced Technology Partner<\/a>, the top level of the AWS partner tiers. By becoming a partner, we now have a dedicated contact and in addition receive top shelf business, technical, marketing, and GTM support. This includes things like a repository of technical and business content created by Amazon exclusively for partners, weekly webinars, online and in-person training, joint marketing opportunities, and sales support for in-depth technical help. Early access to new preview products is a nice benefit as well.\r\n\r\n<strong>What does this mean for you as a customer?<\/strong> That we're deepening our relationship with the world's leading provider of data centers worldwide; home to world-class organizations such as NASA, GE, HTC, Novartis, Spotify, The CDC, The FDA, Adobe, Netflix and more. This means better solutions and technical know-how for you and your business. Need a complex cluster for WordPress built on top of AWS? Check. Need help with scaling beyond critical mass? Check.
