Globecomm has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) as a Standard Technology Partner. This agreement will enable Globecomm to seamlessly interoperate its global satellite and fibre network with AWS’s storage, compute and cloud content delivery services.
“We have been developing platforms and scalable customer solutions on AWS since late 2014,” said Globecomm CEO Jason Juranek. “Like many of our customers, we turned to AWS for cost-effective, secure hosting of our own applications and content. With this agreement, our customers can leverage our expertise in service design and delivery for both on-premise and cloud strategies while enjoying serious savings in implementation time and overall cost.”
Globecomm is currently expanding its existing global points-of-presence with AWS within the North America, Central Europe and Southeast Asia Regions. The company anticipates deploying hybrid cloud-satellite-fibre solutions for customers in media and entertainment, enterprise video and IoT. These hybrid solutions will reach beyond the edges of the network to remote facilities, ships, offshore platforms and vehicles in motion around the world.
“In the past,” Juranek continued, “customers had to use traditional stacked hardware in their own data centres and then build their own teleport and operate the entire environment just to serve their markets. Between Globecomm’s global fibre and teleport network, and the huge capabilities of AWS, they can develop solutions, create content and connect it globally without ever owning a single physical asset.”
