Amazon Web Services Names Smartronix Premier Partner

RESTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Smartronix is pleased to announce that it was named one of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partners. This new top-tier designation highlights the Consulting Partners in the AWS Partner Network (APN) program who have distinguished themselves by investing significantly in their AWS practice; and who are providing exceptional customer service, helping a large number of significant customers run their applications on top of AWS, and building a consulting business on AWS.

"Being among the top tier of AWS' global partners is a reflection of our commitment to provide excellent solution delivery to our customers using these technologies. We strongly believe AWS is an incredibly feature-rich, scalable, and cost-effective cloud platform. We look forward to expanding our reach as an ideal trusted partner for delivering, securing, and managing infrastructure on AWS for large, data-driven organizations," says Smartronix Chief Technology Officer, Robert Groat.

Only AWS Advanced Tier consulting partners among the partner ecosystem were eligible for selection into the Premier category, and only 15 companies were chosen worldwide. Each AWS Premier Consulting Partner gains access to valuable benefits, including deeper technical engagement with AWS Solution Architects and preferred access to AWS beta programs and the AWS Partner Advisory Council.

Smartronix is a global leader in delivering innovative, secure, and agile technology solutions. The Hollywood, MD, based company specializes in cyber security, health IT, network operations, mission-focused engineering, and industry-leading cloud technologies. Smartronix has delivered landmark, award-winning solutions such as Recovery.gov, the first Federal Website hosted on the public cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
