Herndon, Virginia – 3 June 2015 – Gartner, Inc. recently released an updated Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) worldwide, assessing the market for cloud IaaS. In that report, Amazon Web Services (AWS) maintains a sizable margin with its lead against other competitors, continuing movement to the top of the leader’s quadrant.
Smartronix, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, was recognized in the Magic Quadrant report as a "third-party cloud service brokerage" that can "resell major cloud IaaS provider’ solutions, and that typically adds significant value as well." Specifically in the "Government (Federal) Context" section of the report, Smartronix was identified as a company that can help Government customers overcome potential challenges in contracting directly with cloud providers due to Government acquisition rules.
Smartronix VP of Sales, Sean McCarron, noted, "This acknowledgement comes on the heels of Smartronix’ recent recognition as one of the first companies to successfully enter into the AWS Managed Service Partner Program, further highlighting our commitment to the cloud and the delivery of agile solutions to our customers, addressing their often unique and custom needs."
Having delivered AWS cloud solutions to dozens of enterprise and commercial customers as well as the United States Department of the Treasury and other Federal and civilian agencies, Smartronix has a long history of developing and managing customer environments on AWS. Smartronix CloudAssured Managed Services are certified ISO 9001-2008 for quality management systems, CMMI Level 3 certified for Product and Service Deployment, and ISO/IEC 20000:2011 certified for IT Service Management (ITIL).
