AWS Leans On Partner Community To Drive New Internet Of Things Platform

Amazon Web Services continues to push its connected devices-focused managed cloud platform while evangelizing the importance of its partner ecosystem in the push towards IoT.

AWS IoT, which the cloud giant introduced last November, is ’all about connecting devices easily and scaleably, and securely to the cloud,’ according to Mark Relph, head of business development at AWS IoT.

The service is based on modern cloud concepts, and allows developers to create solutions on any operating system, with any chip platform.

Relph said AWS has depended heavily on its ’ecosystem of amazing partners’ in order to ’drive solutions further.’

’Through our partners, we’re able to build a lot of vertical specialty capabilities on top of our platform,’ he said.

AWS continues to look forward to even more cutting edge service plays and wants its partners to join in.

’A lot of what you’ve seen in terms of augmented reality and machine learning can also be hosted on top of AWS, and we’re really excited there,’ he added.
