Ingram Micro Cloud | November 04, 2022

Ingram Micro Cloud has obtained the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Config Service Delivery validation within the AWS Service Delivery Program, further bolstering its expert knowledge of AWS services in supporting partners' technical needs as they manage their cloud business.
