FYI, this story is more than a year old

Unisys has maintained its membership in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Managed Service Provider (MSP) Partner Program for the third year in a row, and has been recognised as a member in the AWS Well-Architected Partner Program for its cloud offerings.

Unisys earned both designations after AWS reviewed the capabilities of CloudForte, Unisys' secure solution for digital transformation and hybrid cloud management and application development.

Unisys is an AWS MSP Partner in the global AWS Partner Network (APN) and has achieved the AWS Government Competency designation for deep experience working with AWS government customers.

The initial AWS MSP Program validation process consisted of a multi-day onsite audit performed by an independent, third-party auditor and aims to confirm the APN Partners ability to provide next-generation managed services and capabilities in cloud architecture, automation, optimisation and management of their clients AWS environments.

This year, Unisys completed an online Performance Review to renew its status in the program. The renewal was effective April 24 and Unisys will go through the full audit again in 2021.

The AWS MSP Program was created to help customers identify validated APN Consulting Partners skilled at cloud infrastructure and application migration and to deliver value to customers by offering proactive monitoring, automation and management of their own customers environments, Unisys states.

Based on five pillars (operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency and cost optimisation), the AWS Well-Architected Framework was developed to help cloud architects build secure, high-performing, resilient and efficient infrastructure for their applications.

Unisys received the designation on March 9. Achieving AWS Well-Architected Partner status validates Unisys experience in providing clients an approach for evaluating architectures and implementing designs that will scale over time.

Unisys vice president Cloud Services Anupriya Ramraj says, “These designations combined are testimony to our proven CloudForte technology and services and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-led operations.

“Our team is dedicated to helping clients harness the power of hybrid cloud and achieve business outcomes by leveraging the agility, breadth of services and pace of innovation that AWS provides.
