Cloud computing and managed hosting provider Logicworks announced on Wednesday the official launch of its managed support for customers using Amazon Web Services.

The managed AWS service gives Logicworks clients the benefits of AWS – elasticity, scalability and unlimited resources  – combined with Logicworks support from its team of system administrators, cloud engineers and network technicians. The new service is suitable for existing users of AWS or customers who want to start using the public cloud service.

A Morgan Stanley report released last week predicts that AWS will reach $24 billion in revenue by 2022, and while many cloud providers are worried about that number and the impact it will have on their own business, others seem to have taken more of a “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” approach by offering more specialized services around consumer clouds like AWS, including Logicworks and GlowTouch.

As an AWS Partner Network Consulting Partner, Logicworks customizes a complete infrastructure solution for its clients. According to the press release, it starts by securing a customer’s application through automating deployment based on specific business and application workflow requirements. Logicworks also offers 24x7x365 proactive support and maintenance.

“The hidden cost in cloud delivery is the time and scarce engineering talent necessary to deploy and support the right mix of public and private cloud platforms,” Kenneth Ziegler, CEO of Logicworks said in a statement. “Logicworks helps IT organizations deploy applications on AWS while also assuming the responsibility of babysitting, automating, and optimizing their infrastructure so that they can focus on their applications.”

A recent study by Microsoft and 451 Research finds that 68 percent of organizations will turn to a hybrid cloud consumption model in the next two years. The research seems to validate the idea that is behind the launch of many private and public cloud services, including the service from Logicworks.

Logicworks says it can design and deploy AWS architectures together with hosted private clouds or dedicated resources that meet compliance standards. Recently, the WHIR talked to Logicworks about its healthcare cloud compliance and how customization is a big part of ensuring customers are comfortable in the cloud.

Logicworks managed AWS service offers project-based consulting to assist clients in developing the right cloud computing strategy for their business and applications, according to the press release.
