SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--SHI International Corp., one of America’s top 10 largest IT solutions providers, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Competency status. This designation recognizes that SHI provides proven AWS Services and Support to help customers successfully achieve their storage goals on AWS.

Achieving the AWS Storage Competency differentiates SHI as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with extensive domain expertise in one or more of the following core storage categories – Backup & Recovery, Primary Storage, Archive, or Business Continuance/Disaster Recovery (BCDR), having developed innovative technology and solutions that leverage AWS services. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

“The amount of information our customers need to store is growing exponentially with video, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the need to feed machine learning platforms continuing to drive this rapid expansion,” said Kevin Clements, CTO of SHI. “Customers need a cost-effective way to store, manage, and protect this information, and AWS provides a great opportunity to do so. SHI is ready to help customers deploy cloud-based storage solutions, and achieving AWS Storage Competency status gives customers the confidence that SHI is certified by an industry leader to help them in this important area.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology Partners in the APN with exceptional industry experience and expertise.
