FREDERICTON, May 5, 2016 /CNW/ - Blue Spurs, a leading provider of managed cloud services in Canada and the United States, today announces their recognition as an Advanced Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). As one of only three advanced AWS partners in Canada, and the only one in the Atlantic region, this designation solidifies Blue Spurs position as a leader in the ever growing cloud space.
Along with the Advanced Consulting Partner designation, Blue Spurs has been named an official AWS reseller as part of the AWS Channel Reseller Program. The AWS Channel Reseller Program allows Blue Spurs to resell AWS services to both commercial and public sector end users in Canada and the United States.
With a team of nearly 100 IT professionals, Blue Spurs has delivered cloud solutions to customers in government, media and publishing, financial services, healthcare and IoT. Both the achievement of Advanced Consulting Partner and recognition as a member of the AWS Channel Reseller Program are strong indicators of Blue Spurs' ongoing commitment to being a leading cloud services provider, and the ever increasing strength of their relationship with AWS.
"Since the company's inception in 2012, we've strived to be a leader in innovative technologies," says Mike LeBlanc, CEO and Founder of Blue Spurs. "Seeing the successes of AWS in the United States, we were quick to adopt a native-cloud approach relying on the market-leading infrastructure. Canadian hockey great Wayne Gretzky talks about being where the puck is going to be, instead of where it's been. Our early adoption of AWS proves that we were able to do just that."
The Blue Spurs announcement comes on the heels of exciting news from AWS: before the end of the year, the first Canadian multi-datacentre Region will be live in Montreal. By expanding their Canadian presence, AWS is demonstrating their commitment to growing a strong ecosystem in the country and Blue Spurs is proud to be one of the first advanced partners to join the journey.
