Hamilton based IT services company Dynamo6 has been awarded Waikato’s only consulting partnership for Amazon Web Services (AWS), as the Kiwi partner deepens relations with the world’s leading cloud vendor.
Following another blockbuster quarter of growth for AWS, Dynamo6 represents the vendor’s fifteen partnership across New Zealand, standing tall as the first and only one in the Waikato.
Dynamo6 Managing Director, Igor Matich, says the team’s certifications as technical AWS experts helped it obtain the prized partnership.
“We are delighted about this as it gives Waikato organisations local expertise and access to AWS as one of the world’s leading cloud platforms,” he says.
“AWS is suited to any organisation wanting to benefit from cloud computing as a cost effective way to manage IT while helping people work better, easier and faster, with more flexibility.
“It is particularly good as a platform to build applications to help businesses scale and grow.
“Having our head office in Hamilton, we know how important it is for organisations to maintain a base in the Waikato, but also take advantage of other regional economies.
“Cloud computing is the best way to support remote or mobile workers – we can live in the Waikato because it’s a great place to be, but work anywhere.”
As reported by Reseller News, AWS continues to surge ahead in its quest for unrivalled cloud dominance, with strong sales and record profits positioning the tech giant for future growth.
At present, the platform is ten times the size of all other cloud service providers put together, including Microsoft and Google, yet questions remain as to whether the tech giant can maintain its sizeable lead in an increasingly competitive market.
Matich says Dynamo6 was also awarded the AWS consulting partnership because of its successful migration of Tainui Group Holdings’ (TGH) IT infrastructure to being 100 percent cloud based.
Tainui Group Holdings is the intergenerational investor for Waikato-Tainui with diversified investments across property, hotels, fishing, farms and forestry and direct investments in leading businesses.
“It’s a challenge to manage IT across multiple businesses in different sectors but this project demonstrates how cloud services can support a multi-faceted organisation, while also respecting community values of guardianship, care for each other and building trust, respect and integrity,” he adds.
