Kyndryl and AWS Form Cloud Partnership

NEW YORK — The IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are working together to “accelerate” cloud computing adoptions among customers.

Kyndryl and AWS entered into a strategic cloud partnership that brings together their expertise, skills, and resources to help customers “transform their businesses,” according to Kyndryl this week.

Kyndryl will collaborate with AWS to provide cloud solutions to Kyndryl’s top enterprise customers. Kyndryl also plans to build out its internal infrastructure in the cloud, using AWS as a preferred cloud provider. 

Kyndryl and AWS will invest in building a global AWS practice with the skills, services, and expertise to deliver a best-in-class customer experience. 

As part of the global partnership, Kyndryl will establish an AWS Cloud Center of Excellence (CCOE) to offer customer solutions and services for supporting mission-critical infrastructure, next-generation technologies, and modernizing applications and workflows.

Kyndryl and AWS today announced they are developing an accelerator for VMware Cloud on AWS leveraging their deep partnerships with VMware. Through the accelerator, skilled practitioners from AWS, VMware, and Kyndryl will deliver deep expertise and custom solutions to help the world’s largest enterprises combine their existing VMware investments with AWS services. 

As part of this announcement, AWS will become a Kyndryl Premier Global Alliance Partner.

As a Premier Global Alliance Partner and MSP-certified member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), Kyndryl has invested heavily in developing AWS competencies and has built an experienced team of AWS-certified services professionals through the Kyndryl Academy for AWS. 

Kyndryl and AWS will further invest in the education of more than 10,000 Kyndryl professionals by the end of 2022, upskilling them in a wide range of AWS skills to support its customers’ rapid adoption of cloud services and solutions around the globe.

“Our ability to freely explore and unleash the combined benefits of AWS cloud services with Kyndryl’s deep industry-specific managed services and expertise will provide an unprecedented level of knowledge and innovation,” said Martin Schroeter, chairman and CEO, Kyndryl. 

“Together, we will invest in enhancing Kyndryl’s expertise in AWS to help companies modernize, innovate, and compete.”

Adam Selipsky, CEO at AWS, said that “by combining forces with Kyndryl, we are helping customers of all sizes to modernize faster than ever before, grow their businesses, and transform what’s possible.”

“Together, we are committed to educating, empowering, and enabling thousands of AWS certified practitioners and developing joint solutions,” Selipsky said.
