Pythian Announces Support For AWS Outposts As A Launch Partner

OTTAWA, ON – December 4, 2019 – Pythian, a global IT services company, announced today that it has capabilities to support AWS Outposts, fully managed and configurable compute and storage racks built with Amazon Web Services (AWS)-designed hardware that allow customers to run compute and storage on-premises, while seamlessly connecting to AWS’s broad array of services in the cloud. As an AWS Outposts Partner, Pythian has been trained and vetted in delivering positive customer outcomes at scale through re-architecting complex workloads to run on AWS operations. 

There are AWS customers today that have certain workloads that will likely need to remain on-premises for several years, such as applications that are latency sensitive and need to be in close proximity to on-premises assets. These customers want to be able to run AWS compute and storage on-premises, and also easily and seamlessly integrate these on-premises workloads with the rest of their applications on AWS. Until now, customers lacked the same APIs, the same tools, the same hardware, and the same functionality across on-premises and the cloud to deliver a truly consistent hybrid experience. AWS Outposts solves these challenges by delivering racks of AWS compute and storage—the same hardware used in AWS public region datacenters—to bring AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models on-premises. As an AWS Outposts Partner, Pythian is able to help AWS customers overcome challenges that exist due to managing and supporting infrastructures both on-premises and cloud environments and deliver positive outcomes at scale.

“Pythian is proud to support AWS Outposts,” said Vanessa Simmons, VP of Business Development. “Our team is dedicated to helping companies achieve their technology goals and providing business value through automation and analytics by leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides.”

Pythian’s deep expertise, automated blueprints, and processes provide the fast time to value with AWS, whether it’s leveraging AWS Outposts, migrating to AWS for the first time, providing 24×7 operational management of AWS environments on-premises or in the cloud, or working to develop and refine a cloud strategy, adopt innovative technologies, execute roadmap and optimize service quality on an ongoing basis.
