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.

The AWS Config Service Delivery validation recognizes AWS Partners that have deep technical knowledge, experience and proven success in delivering specific AWS services to customers. Through the AWS Service Delivery Program, Ingram Micro Cloud has earned the AWS Config Delivery validation. Members of the AWS Config Delivery Program, like Ingram Micro Cloud, specifically help AWS customers assess, audit, and evaluate the configurations of their AWS resources. With AWS Config, customers and AWS Partners can review changes in configurations of AWS resources, explore resource configuration histories, and examine compliance against configurations.

The AWS Service Delivery Program is only available to AWS Partner Network (APN) members that have demonstrated achievements involving enablement of products, services and additional offerings meant to provide customers with greater access to, or an enhancement of, the digital tools available from AWS. To obtain this AWS Service Delivery Program validation, Ingram Micro Cloud passed a rigorous technical evaluation, proving the organization follows best practices for configuration services and provided case studies demonstrating successful customer service delivery.

“By meeting high AWS standards, this validation gives our customers further confidence in our world-class competence in providing specialized AWS services to help them gain a deeper understanding of their AWS resources, It can be hard for companies to have both a bird's eye and close-up view of their configurations, how they change, and how they relate to one another. At Ingram Micro Cloud, we aim to make these processes easier so partners can focus on what they do best.”

Kevin Kareth, head of strategic partnerships - AWS, Ingram Micro Cloud

By harnessing AWS Config, companies can more easily assess the configurations of their AWS resources, audit compliance of their resource configurations and preview the effects of configuration changes on other resources, reducing the risk of incidents, analysis, compliance auditing, change management and operational troubleshooting.

Ingram Micro Cloud and AWS entered into a global Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) in March of 2021. Since then, Ingram Micro Cloud has been expanding its capabilities and technical depth to better support its partners. This is the third AWS technical achievement in addition to two competencies Ingram Micro Cloud has obtained this year, AWS Cloud Management Tools (CMT) ISV Competency and the AWS DevOps Consulting Competency.

Ingram Micro Cloud’s wide range of partner programs and resources offer support for its partners and the organizations it works with in the construction of Ingram Micro Cloud’s cloud practices and management of end customers. Ingram Micro Cloud is an AWS Advanced Tier Services Partner in the APN and an AWS Distributor, and currently provides an AWS Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) team who collectively hold 300+ AWS certifications. Ingram Micro Cloud is also a member of the AWS Well-Architected Partner Program.

Building a cloud application is like building a house. If you don’t at least acknowledge the industry’s best practices, it may all come tumbling down. In the construction industry, principles to ensure a building is constructed effectively are documented in the International Building Code. In the realm of cloud infrastructure, Amazon has pioneered the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The Framework is something like a building code

A bare metal setup gives you complete control, more processing power, and the best performance. As a result, bare metal is ideal for many uses, such as high computing power workloads, big data analytics, and hosting apps that need to be constantly updated.

Cloud4C’s New Data Center in Egypt for In-Country Data Localization

Cloud4C | December 13, 2022

Contents 1. Egypt’s In-Country Data Localization Through Cloud4C Data Center 2. Adoption Rate of Data Localization 3. Data Localization to Promote Privacy With the rising volumes of data generated throughout the world, data centers need to comply with their particular nation’s security regulations. Data stored outside the country tends to get exploited and monetized by competing nations. "According to Statista, in 2021, the world will have generated 74 Zettabytes of data, up from 64.2 Zettabytes in 2020." This brings about the need for "data localization," i.e., storing and retrieving data within the geographical boundaries of a country to conform to its data protection regulations. Cloud4C has set up a new in-country data center in collaboration with the telecom company, Telecom Egypt, to restrict data flow outside Egypt. 1. Egypt’s In-country Data Localization Through Cloud4C Data Center: Egypt has issued a law on the protection of personal data in 2020, and in accordance with it, they are now moving to data localization. Cloud4C is one of the vendors for secure public and enterprise cloud solutions. They are backed by the finest technology giants to bring the best cyber security solutions to their cloud data centers. In Egypt, sectors such as government, financial services, and healthcare will benefit from data localization, promoting their "intelligent enterprises" agenda. 2. Adoption Rate of Data Localization: As of 2021, 62 out of 195 countries have implemented data localization. In 2017, only 35 out of 195 countries had done so. The rate of adoption of data localization will be 31.79% in 2021, up from a mere 17.94% in 2017. 3. Data Localization to Promote Privacy: One of the top security plans for all nations has been to put up regulatory barriers to restrict the flow of data across their borders. Countries that are in competition with each other can't let other countries use their data to make money, so they keep their data production and data assets to themselves. A strict data localization norm helps promote privacy. Some of the world's biggest developing economies are now thinking about data localization as a way to stop cybercrime. For many years to come, competing countries will continue to be interested in data privacy.
