The AWS Mumbai Sum­mit 2017 pro­vided learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for new cloud users and for the ex­pe­ri­enced part­ners through many ses­sions, work­shops and demos. The re­cently held Ama­zon Part­ners Sum­mit in Mumbai witnessed par­tic­i­pants from the cloud com­put­ing com­mu­nity. The key­note at the sum­mit was de­liv­ered by Terry Wise, Vice Pres­i­dent, WW Al­liances, Chan­nels and Ecosys­tem, AWS.

AWS Tech­nol­ogy Part­ners in In­dia in­clude Man­than, In­dus­face, New­gen, Mithi Soft­ware, Vin­cu­lum, and many oth­ers who are pro­vid­ing soft­ware so­lu­tions that are ei­ther hosted on, or in­te­grated with AWS. shared that, AWS’s re­li­able cloud plat­form gives them free­dom to build their prod­ucts around its eco-sys­tem with great ef­fi­ciency and in­stant ser­vice de­liv­ery. Some views from the part­ners are shared be­low:

Atul Ba­tra, CTO, Man­than at the sum­mit shared, "Man­than wants to be­come the big­gest an­a­lyt­ics provider on the cloud. Right now we are op­er­at­ing in 23+ coun­tries, and out of them US is our largest mar­ket.

It's been 6 years; we are hav­ing a great part­ner­ship in terms of co-in­no­vat­ing with AWS. We are re­ally thank­ful to the part­ner­ship of AWS and are well honored".

Man­than is an AWS Ad­vanced Tech­nol­ogy Part­ner in­no­vat­ing with AWS na­tive tech­nolo­gies and ser­vices.

Tarun Malaviya, Founder & CEO, Mithi Soft­ware says, "Our Com­pany is work­ing on col­lab­o­ra­tion so­lu­tions. We started off by pro­vid­ing email so­lu­tions to large and small or­ga­ni­za­tions. What we have seen is how col­lab­o­ra­tion tech­nol­ogy is mov­ing. We have ob­served that the us­age of email is chang­ing; like to­day peo­ple are not re­ally shar­ing too much in­for­ma­tion on emails but email con­tin­ues to be an im­por­tant medium of shar­ing ba­sic in­for­ma­tion. It has be­come an im­por­tant medium of record­ing of­fi­cial in­for­ma­tion now.

A lot of trans­ac­tion is hap­pen­ing on­line too. Peo­ple save ev­ery­thing in their sys­tems but there is ob­vi­ously a pos­si­bil­ity of sys­tem fail­ure or a de­lib­er­ate re­moval of stuff. These prob­lems can be faced in case of fraud also and the in­for­ma­tion can be lost. So here comes the adop­tion of Cloud as ev­ery­thing can be stored on cloud and can be brought back im­me­di­ately. About two years ago the com­pany made the choice of mov­ing to the Cloud plat­form to avoid such prob­lems”.

Tarun added, "Mov­ing to AWS has en­abled Mithi to bring newer and bet­ter of­fer­ings to its cus­tomers and to in­no­vate faster. The com­pany has re­cently launched 3 more so­lu­tions on AWS in­clud­ing Vaultas­tic – a cloud based email ar­chiv­ing and backup so­lu­tion that can be used to archive mails from any mail­ing sys­tem and ClearStream – of­fer­ing Anti Spam, Anti Virus and Ran­somware pro­tec­tion for mail servers as well as a ba­sic dis­as­ter re­cov­ery to en­sure email ser­vice con­ti­nu­ity in case the primary email server is in­ac­ces­si­ble".

"The re­la­tion­ship with AWS is pretty good. They re­ally un­der­stand the part­ners who are build­ing on the top of the cloud. For AWS, the part­ners are im­por­tant as with our growth, they also grow", Tarun fur­ther added.

Ashish Tan­don, CEO, In­dus­face told, "In­dus­face is a to­tal ap­pli­ca­tion se­cu­rity plat­form. What we es­sen­tially do is we se­cure web­sites and mo­bile apps from hack­ers. We have cus­tomers in around 17 coun­tries. We are ba­si­cally pro­tect­ing web­sites from hack­ers".

Ashish fur­ther shared, "We have ex­panded through AWS, and the cus­tomer reach has re­ally in­creased be­cause of AWS. As we are en­tirely hosted on AWS, we not only sell to AWS cus­tomers but also use their plat­form to host". are AWS's part­ner from 5 years. Our busi­ness around AWS is go­ing pretty good. We have been grow­ing well since then. The plat­form is re­ally pow­er­ful in terms of value that it adds to our cus­tomers. It helps to in­no­vate around and pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices to the cus­tomers. It helps to stand up in the mar­ket as a lead­ing com­pany".

"Ear­lier it was dif­fi­cult for us to get en­ter­prise cus­tomers. We were not re­ally ready to get into cloud, but then there were adop­tions over cloud and it has helped a lot in terms of busi­ness", Va­roon added. that, "We are a global SAAS com­pany and have worked with the global ecosys­tem, the ecosys­tems like flip­kart. We have re­tail­ers like TATA too".

"Ama­zon gave us de­mand pre­dictabil­ity and good flex­i­bil­ity. We have re­ally en­tered the mar­kets now which are de­vel­op­ing with this. When we tell them that we are on Ama­zon, it's re­ally easy to con­vince them. Ama­zon is there for data se­cu­rity also. Its in­fras­truc­ture is very much ca­pa­ble of the se­cu­rity lay­er­ing", added Amit.

Vin­cu­lum is an Ad­vanced Tech­nol­ogy Part­ner of AWS which has built in­te­gra­tions to mar­ket­places like Ama­zon, eBay, Flip­kart etc. cloud do­main. That's go­ing to be the fu­ture. AWS has that pres­ence. They have ex­pe­ri­ence and are in­dus­try lead­ers. The in­fras­truc­ture is help­ful. The re­la­tion­ship with global cus­tomers is very much en­joyed be­cause of AWS. There is a sense of se­cu­rity that is en­joyed. The re­la­tion­ship has been great with AWS".
