SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 8, 2015 – ClearScale, a leader in cloud systems integration and application development, announced today it has been named a Premier Consulting Partner by Amazon Web Services (AWS) as part of the AWS Partner Network (APN).

As one of only a few AWS Premier Consulting Partners, ClearScale has demonstrated the capabilities necessary to build, deploy, and manage complex cloud architectures on AWS. ClearScale’s long track record of successful DevOps projects, cloud application development, and infrastructure migrations spans more than a hundred client engagements. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, ClearScale built a born-in-the-cloud consulting practice exclusive to AWS, helping companies like Samsung, Shinola Detroit, Netpulse, Medallia, The Globe and Mail, Onstream, Dot & Bo, and AdTheorent to deploy or migrate core business applications onto AWS.

“The entire ClearScale team is honored to receive formal recognition of our expertise and customer success as an AWS Premier Consulting Partner. The AWS Premier Consulting Partner designation is a huge milestone achieved by only a handful of partners – it is very special,” said Pavel Pragin, CEO of ClearScale. “Our relationship with AWS was essential in building our business and they have been an outstanding partner. We are proud that our capabilities and proven track record have positioned ClearScale as a valuable partner within the APN.”

The AWS Premier Consulting Partner tier highlights the top APN Consulting Partners globally that have invested significantly in their AWS practice, have a proven track record of customer satisfaction for deploying solutions on AWS, have a strong bench of trained and certified technical consultants, have at least one APN Competency, have expertise in project management, and have a healthy revenue-generating consulting business on AWS.

Brent Richtsmeier, Vice President at Samsung Research of America’s Advanced Printing Solutions Lab said, “ClearScale provides hard to find breadth in cloud and enterprise development, coupled with practical implementation capability. We have worked with ClearScale during the past three years developing the Samsung Cloud Print Platform. They have delivered a wide variety of tasks ranging from database integration, service development, performance and the control dashboard. I am impressed with the timeliness on delivery and capability to expand staffing as needed. ClearScale is a great asset to any team.”

“ClearScale helped AdTheorent tremendously as we migrated our RTB infrastructure to Amazon Web Services, which ultimately allowed us to increase our QPS by 100 percent and will allow us to continue to scale,” said Andrew Anderson, AdTheorent’s VP of Platform Development. “ClearScale provided us with best practices and strategic recommendations that enabled us to build with confidence and execute a flawless transition.”

Recent customer successes that ClearScale designed and implemented include:

  • A Big Data recommendation engine for The Globe and Mail mobile app that provides readers with relevant article recommendations in real time
  • An advanced Big Data IoT system that enables Onstream (formerly Cirrus Systems) to process incoming data from the company’s home automation devices
  • A self-service portal for Medallia to enable their global sales team to self-provision custom demo environments of their SaaS platform

"We are pleased to recognize ClearScale as an AWS Premier Consulting Partner in the APN,” said Terry Wise, Vice President of Worldwide Partner Ecosystems at Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Based on their proven track record of delivering mission critical production applications and managed services with a strong focus on DevOps and Big Data solutions, ClearScale has been a key enabler for customers in the Bay Area and beyond."

Regarding the announcement, Ryan Shaltry, Senior Technical Architect at Shinola Detroit, said, “ClearScale achieving AWS Premier Consulting Partner status is not only a big deal to ClearScale, but also to Shinola Detroit, knowing that we implemented a world-class, enterprise-level solution and leveraged one of the best possible providers in the business.”
