ROCHESTER, N.Y. — July 11, 2019 — CloudCheckr, the most comprehensive Cloud Management Platform (CMP) for finance, security, and compliance teams tasked with enabling enterprise-wide cloud adoption, announced today that is has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Microsoft Workloads Competency status. This designation recognizes that CloudCheckr provides proven technology in helping customers with Microsoft Workloads post-migration operational optimization.

Achieving the AWS Microsoft Workloads Competency differentiates CloudCheckr as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with a specific focus on workloads based on post-migration automation, health management, cost management, threat management, inventory, and reporting. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.


“CloudCheckr is proud to achieve AWS Microsoft Workloads Competency status,” said Elissa Livingston, Vice President of Strategic Alliances. “Our inclusion as a launch partner underscores the commitment CloudCheckr has to delivering innovative one dashboard cloud management for the diverse technology portfolio our customers require on AWS infrastructure.”


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 APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.


“We did not want to implement a [cloud security] solution completely on our own, because this is not our business focus,” said Friedrich Glöckner, Systems Architect at Siemens Mobility Services. One of the first post-migration recommendations CloudCheckr provided for Siemens’ Railigent® Application Suite was that Railigent did not need the more expensive RDS Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition and could save 30-40% in RDS costs by switching to the RDS Microsoft SQL Server Web Edition. “Not only did security improve immediately, but so did cost monitoring.”
