Web Host Enables Customers to Unleash the Power of the Cloud with New Managed Services for AWS
LOS ANGELES – July 7, 2015 – Media Temple, a Los Angeles-based company that provides premium web and cloud hosting solutions, today unveiled its new managed cloud hosting services for Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers. Backed by white glove, 24/7 support provided by its own certified cloud engineers, Media Temple’s managed services cater to the business needs of not only creative agencies and web developers, but also content providers, e-commerce, SaaS and enterprise businesses.
AWS has been a dominant force in the cloud space since its launch in 2006, providing building blocks and operational efficiencies to create amazing hosting solutions. However, in order for high-traffic websites and complex web apps to get the most out of AWS, a solid expertise in cloud architecture and administration is required.
Media Temple’s new offering delivers repeatable SysOps-like services for customers so they can cost-effectively leverage the flexibility and scalability of AWS without having to source these services internally – or externally. The Media Temple team of cloud experts can also help architect a brand new autoscaling environment on AWS and/or migrate websites and apps to AWS.
“Working with cloud pioneer AWS was an obvious choice and allowed us to focus on developing premium cloud architecture and SysAdmin services that were highly successfully put to the test in the pilot program we conducted a few months ago,” said Brendan Fortune, Product Director, Cloud Solutions at Media Temple.
“Our relationship with AWS is a natural extension to Media Temple’s 16 years of expertise architecting and supporting hosting and cloud solutions,” added Brian Kuhn, VP of Product at Media Temple. “Our customers have requested and expect high-performance, cost-optimized managed services. We’re eager to help them unleash the power of the AWS Cloud while focusing on running and scaling their business.”
Media Temple is a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), a global partner program focused on helping partners build a successful AWS-based business by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support. To achieve Advanced Consulting Partner status, companies must meet stringent requirements and pass an AWS technical review. Media Temple achieved Advanced Consulting Partner status even before its solution had been officially launched.
Media Temple’s cloud engineers can help businesses identify the services they need – for free. More information about the company’s new managed cloud hosting services can be found at http://mediatemple.net/managedcloud/.
