Arvato Systems, AWS In Multi-Million Euro Deal
Arvato Systems has been working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a cloud service provider for several years. And the cloud business of the IT specialist is growing steadily. Arvato Systems and Amazon Web Services have now agreed to purchase AWS services with a value of several million euros.
By 2017, Arvato Systems and Amazon Web Services (AWS) had already expanded their longterm partnership and established the Arvato Systems AWS Business Group. In this context, Arvato Systems bundled its AWS expertise and gradually began to expand its existing consulting and reseller business in the German-speaking region. In the meantime, the Bertelsmann IT subsidiary can rely on extensive experience from successful cloud projects, a dedicated AWS team and the associated broad-based know-how, which the company can use to add value for its customers.
The increase in demand for Amazon Web Services from an international customer resulted in Arvato Systems negotiating a 12-month agreement with AWS for the purchase of AWS services worth several million euros. By bundling demand volumes, Arvato Systems as a reseller was able to offer attractive AWS conditions and more cost-effective access to dedicated 24/7 AWS support to this major customer. In addition, Arvato Systems will also provide extended services if required.
“All in all, such agreements will create a win-win-win situation for all parties involved, both for our customers and for AWS and ourselves,” says Manfred Heinen, SVP of Arvato Systems.
Arvato Systems is a member of the AWS Partner Network and is an AWS APN Advanced Consulting Partner.
