VERSENT NAMED LAUNCH PARTNER FOR AWS OUTPOSTS IN AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND
December 06, 2019
AWS Outposts is a new fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any customer datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.
AWS Outposts is ideal for workloads that need low latency access to on-premises applications or systems, local data processing, or for local data storage needs.
You can now run Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, container-based services such as Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS, database services such as Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts, and analytics services such as Amazon EMR locally on your Outposts. You can seamlessly connect to the broad range of services and tools available in the local AWS Region such as Amazon DynamoDB, AWS CloudFormation, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, Elastic BeanStalk, Cloud 9, and others to run and manage workloads on Outposts the same way as you do in the cloud today.
“Versent is excited to be chosen as the launch partner for Australia and New Zealand. We were chosen for our expertise in migrating complex workloads to run on AWS, coupled with our deep commitment to help customers realise the value of Outposts for their business. In fact, we already have a number of customers ready to go with AWS Outposts, which was made globally available from 4 December 2019”
