ePLDT expands cloud expertise with Amazon Web Services
Makati City – ePLDT, the digital enterprise enabler of the country's leading telecoms and digital services provider, PLDT, continues to expand its cloud expertise and strengthen its portfolio of cloud solutions with its recent elevation to Standard Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN).
As an AWS Standard Consulting Partner, ePLDT enables enterprises to design, build, migrate, and manage their workloads and applications on Amazon Web Services.
"This fits our overall strategy to offer a full-spectrum of enterprise cloud solutions via our own managed infrastructure and expertise as well as through partnerships with the best in the business," shared Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT Group COO. "We recognize that when it comes to cloud adoption and implementation, one size does not fit all requirements since different workloads require different deployment models and infrastructure tuning. The mission is to empower enterprises with the countless benefits that cloud offers - lower cost of ownership, operational agility, auto software updates, increased collaboration, easy and affordable business continuity and disaster recovery implementation- to name some. Of course, this is wrapped around by the combined expertise of ePLDT and AWS."
Amazon Web Services, widely regarded as the leading cloud infrastructure provider globally, is the cloud computing platform of Amazon. Operating on 11 regions around the globe, it includes a wide range of web-based services including Compute, Storage, Network, Mobile, and Database.
The Amazon Partner Network (APN), the global partner program of Amazon Web Services, is focused on providing members of the AWS partner ecosystem with program, technical, business, and go-to-market support. Consulting Partners, which include System Integrators, Strategic Consultancies, Agencies, Managed Service Providers, and Value Added Resellers, gain access to a range of resources and trainings to support customers in deploying, running, and managing applications in the AWS Cloud.
Apart from being an AWS Standard Consulting Partner, ePLDT is also a member of the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA). An industry trade association, ACCA aims to accelerate growth of the cloud market in Asia and provides a platform for members to discuss implementation and growth strategies, and establish policies and best practices related to the cloud computing ecosystem.
"We are proud of joining the AWS Partner Network as a Standard Consulting Partner, as it reflects our commitment to help our customers leverage on cloud technology to drive growth and performance in their businesses," noted PLDT Enterprise, International & Carrier Business EVP and ePLDT President Eric Alberto. "This, along with our membership in the Asia Cloud Computing Association, is just a few of the many initiatives we have undertaken to expand our solutions portfolio and strengthen our expertise to ensure we sustain our status as the digital solutions partner-of-choice for the Enterprise market."
