Zen selected for AWS 'Well-Architected' programme

As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner for over five years, Zen already provides a first class AWS service to customers

Greater Manchester-based Zen has been selected for the new AWS Well-Architected partner programme, which will enable the cloud services provider to help customers achieve business success through well-architected systems.

As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner for over five years, Zen already provides a first class AWS service to customers, and this further accreditation means that Zen will now be able to access AWS funding to assist customers in making improvements to their AWS environments. The AWS Well-Architected Framework is built on five pillars: operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency and cost optimisation; and through a comprehensive review based on each of these pillars, businesses will be able to lay a strong foundation for cloud success.

Zen’s head of cloud and hosting, John Lyons, says: “The AWS Well-Architected Framework provides businesses with a tremendous blueprint to build secure, highly available and cost effective cloud environments. And thanks to our close relationship with AWS - and through our highly-skilled team of in-house experts - we are now able to offer this AWS approved service to our customers.”

The Well-Architected review on offer from Zen includes a half-day review followed by up to five days of free remediation consultancy to address any issues identified.

In addition to cloud expertise (including Cloud Connect, which provides a dedicated, direct connection into AWS and Azure services), Zen also owns and operates one of the largest independent data networks in the UK, and is one of only a handful of providers offering ultrafast connectivity to customers.
