Cloud Networking Company Aviatrix Announces AWS Networking Competency Status
November 29, 2017
Cloud networking company Aviatrix Systems (Aviatrix) has announced it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Networking Competency Status. Aviatrix, which has headquarters in Palo Alto, California, United States, bills itself as a “pioneer in cloud networking” with services that simplify scaling in the cloud and provide secure connectivity “across a wide range of cloud architectures”. The solution is designed specifically for AWS, Azure, and Google clouds and its customers’ public, private, or hybrid clouds. News of Aviatrix’s new status was made at AWS’ recent re:Invent conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.
Part of the Amazon Group of companies, AWS is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, United States. Offering the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, and compute and storage solutions, the company is the dominant cloud market player, and while the arena has recently become more competitive, it still enjoys 42% of the cloud market. AWS Networking Competency recognizes Aviatrix’s cloud networking and infrastructure capability and its history of enabling companies to migrate to, utilize and scale on the AWS cloud. The recognition highlights the company as an AWS APN member that “provides specialized, demonstrated technical proficiency and proven networking success with a specific focus on secure network connectivity to and on AWS”.
“Attaining AWS Networking Competency status represents an important milestone in our company’s history,” explained Aviatrix’s CEO, Steven Mih. “Being first to the program’s Connectivity focus speaks volumes about our built-for-cloud approach, which eliminates the networking pain of operating in hybrid cloud environments. Aviatrix delivers ‘network as code,’ a dramatic advance over vRouters that enables cloud and DevOps teams to deploy and change cloud connections at cloud speeds—securely, reliably and without requiring traditional networking skills. As a result, every organization running workloads on Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) can dynamically and automatically take advantage of the full range of AWS services.”
