Ensono Renews its AWS Managed Service Provider Partner Designation

Thursday, July 9, 2020

Ensono announces renewal into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Managed Service Provider (MSP) Partner Program. After a rigorous auditing process, Ensono was selected for upholding the qualifications needed to guide AWS clients through their digital transformation journey: an innovative team of experts, next-generation tech and experience with successful outcomes.  

“Serving as a constant ally to our clients’ individual business needs is at the core of Ensono’s work, and it’s what makes us a strong partner,” said Sean Roberts, general manager of public cloud at Ensono. “Achieving this designation year after year is a direct result of our associates’ hard work, expertise in AWS services and forward-thinking approach to digital transformation.”

The AWS MSP Partner Program recognizes leading MSPs and validates leading APN Consulting Partners highly skilled at providing full lifecycle solutions to clients. MSPs are selected by an independent, third-party auditor who conducts a multi-day audit to confirm the partner’s ability to provide clients’ AWS environments with next-generation managed services and capabilities in cloud architecture, automation, optimization and management. This designation highlights Ensono’s deep expertise in AWS and its ability to take clients on their cloud adoption journey, citing Ensono’s Cloud Transform Framework, Activate, Migrate, Operate, Enable and Optimize, as best practice.

Ensono has been managing mission critical Microsoft workloads for more than 20 years, including for its long-standing client Guinness World Records (GWR). With 50,000 applications, 47,000 record enquiries from 178 countries and 6,000 records approved annually, Ensono successfully migrated GWR to AWS public cloud environment, enabling the company to perform ongoing transformation. In addition to being an AWS MSP Partner, Ensono holds more than 140 AWS certifications, with many of their associates achieving at least five certifications each.

“We have worked with Ensono for the past 16 years, and their proven expertise in managed public cloud is exactly what we need going forward,” said Rob Howe, IT Director, Guinness World Records. “The next phase of our journey is to become an innovative, cloud-first company, with accessible and engaging record-breaking achievements at the heart of what we do; and our IT system must cater for this. Ensono’s understanding of our business demonstrated what was possible with Amazon Web Services and prepares us for the next stage in our evolution.” 

Ensono also holds numerous other designations with AWS including Well-Architected Reviews, Microsoft Workloads Competency, Amazon EC2 for Microsoft Windows Server, and Public Sector Partner and Solution Provider.
