Cloudnexa: Making AWS Easy for SMB’s Around the Globe

Joel Davne, Founder & CEO
In this era of rapid technological innovation, enterprises of all sizes are continuing to transition to cloud as a means to take advantage of this innovation. With this shift, organizations are seeking out flexible, secure, and cost-effective IT infrastructure and are increasingly turning to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for their suite of comprehensive cloud computing services. However, businesses may lack resources and tools needed to utilize AWS to its maximum potential. Pioneering in cloud and bridging the gap between businesses and AWS, Cloudnexa, headquartered at Philadelphia, Penn., provides managed services, empowering clients to harness the utility power of cloud computing. “As a Premier Consulting Partner of AWS, with unique utility priced services, we help businesses quickly and cost effectively achieve their cloud objectives,” says Joel Davne, CEO, Cloudnexa.

The company deploys and manages cloud infrastructure with its utility priced managed service offerings. “At Cloudnexa, we don't charge clients a penny until they are up and running in the cloud. Essentially we are advising and architecting services for clients on our dime, and we start charging for our services once an organization is up and running on AWS,” says Davne. “At that point, we charge a fee equal to 18 percent of the client’s AWS spends. No long term contracts are required, clients can choose to stay with us as long as they are happy with our service, which we hope leads to a long term relationship. We share the risks with our clients, encourage them to leverage our deep experience and knowledge of AWS to take advantage of the latest technology AWS is making accessible to them,” said Davne.

Cloudnexa also offers it’s vNOC cloud management platform for AWS to all clients as an integral part of its services. vNOC is a dynamicuser interface that aggregates all of a client’s AWS assets and resources and presents a consolidated dashboard of these resources for provisioning and management of these on AWS. “As a Managed Service Partner (MSP) for AWS, it was important that we develop the tools and automation necessary to manage cost and resources on the AWS platform.
vNOC delivers the automation necessary to preserve cloud savings,” said Davne.

The firm offers two managed cloud tiers: Standard and Premium. The Standard Managed Service provides a robust set of services such as architecture, building, operating the environment, and providing ongoing support. The Premium Tier has Cloudnexa partnering with Sumo Logic, AppDynamics, and Trend Micro, bringing together several essential services. “The Premium Tier offers utility pricing to the customers and it delivers a complete, secure managed cloud for only 47 percent of customers’ monthly AWS spend,” remarks Davne.

With a deep vertical knowledge and proven track record in the AWS arena, Cloudnexa believes in maintaining a strong relationship with clients. Many customers have benefited from the AWS landscape with the assistance delivered by the company. Highlighting several recent case studies, “We are finding more frequently that clients simply do not want to invest the time or money to educate internal staff on AWS services, not to mention the ongoing investment required to stay up to date (AWS launched 521 new services and features just last year). IT leaders want their staff focused on adding value to the business, and they are turning to us to manage their cloud, which they see as a utility asset. It’s a partnership, each of us focused on adding value where we are best suited,” said Lisa Brown, Vice President of Marketing for Cloudnexa.
