Conducted annually, this stringent audit requires MSPs to demonstrate extensive expertise in cloud infrastructure and application migration, as well as the ability to deliver value by offering proactive monitoring, automation, and management of their customer's environment.

"Once again Connectria is proud to be recognized among the elite audited group of AWS next-generation Managed Service Partners," said Rich Waidmann, President and CEO of Connectria.

"Among the thousands of AWS partners around the globe, only a relatively few are able to achieve this level. That fact that this is the third year in a row that Connectria has earned AWS MSP status is a testament to the maturity of our AWS Managed Services expertise and business. It is also a reaffirmation of our TRIA for AWS offer, which has helped many organizations get the most out of AWS by addressing its top three challenges; performance, security/compliance and cost optimization."

Connectria will be exhibiting at AWS re:Invent 2017, from November 28 - 30 at the Sands Expo Hall in Las Vegas. Please visit us at Booth #539 and ask about TRIA for AWS.
