TekStream Solutions Attains AWS Well-Architected Framework Partner Status

TekStream joins elite group of less than 150 AWS partners worldwide certified to conduct Well-Architected Framework evaluations.

TekStream Solutions, an Atlanta-based digital transformation technology firm and Advanced Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN), is excited to announce that they are now a part of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

The Well-Architected Framework was developed to help cloud architects build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications. Based on five pillars — operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization — the Framework provides a consistent approach for AWS customers and partners to evaluate architectures and implement designs that will scale over time.

Fewer than 150 of all AWS consulting partners have achieved the Well-Architected Framework (WAF) Partner designation. To qualify for the WAF Partner Program, partners must have earned Advanced Tier status, have a specified number of AWS Certified Solutions Architects on staff, and have committed to completing a minimum number of Well-Architected Reviews per quarter.

” The AWS Well-Architected Framework is the best-practice template for consistent customer cloud success. Our commitment to delivering the highest standards for digital transformation made achieving this partner designation a priority and squarely aligns with our mission and the needs of our customers.” stated Judd Robins, Executive Vice President of Sales.  “We’re very excited that TekStream is now one of the leading AWS partners approved to deliver AWS Well-Architected Reviews.”

To qualify for the award, companies had to be privately owned, established in the first quarter of 2015 or earlier, experienced a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent, and garnered revenue between $2 million and $300 million in 2018.

For the 4th Time, Atlanta-based Technology Company Named One of the Fastest-growing Private Companies in America with Three-Year Sales Growth of 129%

ATLANTA, GA, August 16, 2018 – Atlanta-based technology company, TekStream Solutions, is excited to announce that for the fourth time in a row, it has made the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This prestigious recognition comes again just seven years after Rob Jansen, Judd Robins, and Mark Gannon left major firms and pursued a dream of creating a strategic offering to provide enterprise technology software, services, solutions, and sourcing. Now, they’re a part of an elite group that, over the years, has included companies such as Chobani, Intuit, Microsoft, Oracle, Timberland, Vizio, and Zappos.com.

“Being included in the Inc. 5000 for the fourth straight year is something we are truly proud of as very few organizations in the history of the Inc. 5000 list since 2007 can sustain the consistent and profitable growth year over year needed to be included in this prestigious group of companies,” said Chief Executive Officer, Rob Jansen. “Our continued focus and shift of our services to helping customers leverage Cloud-based technologies and Big Data solutions have provided us with a platform for continued growth and allowed TekStream to provide extremely value-added solutions to our portfolio of industry-leading customers.”

Customers Realize 30%+ Annual Savings on their AWS Cloud Spend with TekStream’s New AWS Cloud Optimization Solution

TekStream Solutions Helps Companies Realize 30% or More on their AWS Cloud Spend with TekStream’s new AWS Cloud Optimization Solution

ATLANTA, GA, August 10, 2018 — Atlanta-based technology company, TekStream Solutions, is excited to announce the release of its AWS Cloud Optimization Solution. TekStream’s AWS Cloud Optimization Solution is specifically designed to help companies contain and optimize their AWS Cloud spend. Companies are moving from traditional, on-premise or datacenter hosted environments to take advantage of Cloud solutions to run critical business applications, maintain test and development environments, and devise geographic disaster recovery solutions.

Many of these companies have found that cost management is difficult without the appropriate controls and oversight to control how Cloud-based systems are utilized. TekStream’s AWS Cloud Optimization provides the insight, control, and guidance through a mix of software and Amazon Cloud experts that collect, analyze, recommend, and correct AWS account details to ensure the optimization of Cloud spend. TekStream’s AWS Cloud Optimization Solution provides software comprised of Collectors and Reapers backed by analytics to make initial recommendations helping clients cut Cloud costs. Standard focused areas for Optimization include:

• Orphaned Snapshots
• Snapshots backed by AMIs
• Orphaned EBS volumes
• PIOPS on orphaned volumes
• EBS volumes on stopped instances
• Unused instances
• Legacy instance types
• Underutilized instances

“Our continued focus and shift of our services to helping clients leverage Cloud-based technologies and Big Data solutions have revealed significant areas of cost savings in our client’s Cloud Infrastructure spend with platforms such as AWS and Oracle. While many clients have rapidly adopted AWS and other Cloud platforms, the approach has mainly been a traditional datacenter one versus leveraging the true value of today’s leading Cloud platforms like AWS. Our unique AWS Cloud Optimization solution provides the necessary analytics along with expert architecture review to help our clients optimize their AWS spend as well as set up their Infrastructure for future growth. The result in many cases is a 25%-30% reduction in annual spend for our clients.” – Rob Jansen, CEO of TekStream Solutions,

Troy Allen, Vice President of Emerging Technologies of TekStream Solutions, says, “TekStream has years of experience helping clients manage their applications across a wide variety of infrastructures. In those years, we have seen an increase for Public Cloud environments like AWS. Even early adopters have not developed the best practices needed to manage their infrastructure spend as efficiently as they could. TekStream’s team of AWS experts have worked for some of the largest Cloud adopters bringing those experiences and proven best practices to our own clients. Technology and Knowledge are the cornerstones of our AWS Cloud Optimization Solution.”
