Amazon Web Services (AWS) recognizes the importance of cloud operations services; a set of services designed to help operate and manage cloud infrastructure effectively. However, cloud operations can be time-consuming and challenging for many cloud users, requiring a wide depth of cloud expertise. It’s hard to determine exactly how to set up your organization for operational excellence and how to continually manage daily cloud operations. To address these challenges, AWS launched the AWS Cloud Operations Competency on April 6, 2023. Within a week of this launch, they accredited StackZone with this brand new competency, highlighting StackZone’s user-friendly platform that actively helps organizations secure their workloads on AWS.
What is AWS Cloud Operations Competency?
The AWS Cloud Operations Competency is a validation of a partner’s expertise in operating, monitoring, and securing workloads on AWS. This competency recognizes AWS Partners who have proven their ability to deliver successful Cloud Operations solutions on AWS. Achieving this competency requires a rigorous validation process, including an audit by AWS Solution Architects, to ensure that partners have the technical proficiency and expertise required to deliver the best cloud operations solutions to their customers.
