Cascadeo’s Jared Reimer On Hot AWS Services And Customer Trends

Cascadeo was one of Amazon Web Services’ first certified channel partners, owning a wealth of knowledge about how to make the most money and best leverage AWS innovation in the market today as an MSP.

“AWS, more than anybody in the cloud world, has set the bar for innovation, engineering, scale, operations, platform breadth and depth. It’s amazing really—there’s nothing like it,” said Jared Reimer, president and founder of Cascadeo, which made CRN’s 2022 Elite MSP 150 list.

The Mercer Island, Wash.-based cloud DevOps specialist has been an AWS partner for over 15 years with over 200 certified professionals.

Founded in 2006, Cascadeo is a premier consulting partner on the AWS Partner Network with a huge focus on cloud migrations, automation, cloud optimization, infrastructure architecture and managed and professional services. The company recently doubled down on its Amazon partnership via a strategic collaboration with AWS aimed at accelerating enterprise and mid-market cloud adoption.

Cascadeo is providing a slew of value-added cloud services with expectations of growing its AWS business by “at least” 33 percent this year versus 2021.

AWS still has a substantial lead from a technology standpoint, in most regards, over the rest of the industry. They innovate in parallel at a speed that I rarely have seen ever, anywhere in the world,” said Reimer, an IT expert with over three decades of top industry experience. “They’re just getting started. I don’t think that AWS’ growth and uptake is unsustainable, I think it’s the opposite.”

Hot services include AWS Connect, an easy-to-use omnichannel cloud contact center service, and Amazon DevOps Guru, a machine learning-powered service that improves application operational performance and availability.

From offerings like AWS Connect and DevOps Guru to how to leverage the AWS Marketplace, Reimer tells CRN five red-hot AWS services and opportunities channel partners should be taking advantage of right now.

“Customers can procure Cascadeo services through the AWS Marketplace just as easily as they can by buying direct from us. If they do that, there’s this whole expedited workflow around procurement,” said Reimer.
