Media Temple has launched new managed cloud hosting services for AWS to allow high-traffic websites and complex apps to get the most out of the public cloud, the company announced on Tuesday. The solution is intended for creative agencies and web developers, but also for content providers, ecommerce, SaaS, and enterprises.
The managed services allow customers to fully leverage the flexibility and scalability of AWS cost-effectively, like having a SysOps, without having to source them internally or externally, Media Temple says. The company’s team can design customers a custom autoscaling environment on AWS, and help migrate websites and apps if necessary.
“Working with cloud pioneer AWS was an obvious choice and allowed us to focus on developing premium cloud architecture and SysAdmin services that were highly successfully when put to the test in the pilot program we conducted a few months ago,” said Brendan Fortune, Product Director, Cloud Solutions at Media Temple.
Media Temple had achieved Advanced Technology Partner status as an AWS Partner Network member prior to launching its AWS solution.
AWS open sourced TLS encryption protocol s2n a week ago, and plans to integrate s2n into several services soon. Many hosting companies have partnerships with AWS, such as Australian ecommerce provider Anchor, which launched managed services built on AWS in March.
The expanded AWS partnership follows Media Temple’s launch of Google Apps for Work in December. The new managed AWS hosting solution is the first new major product for Media Temple since former president Russ Reeder left the company to join iCitizen in April.
