You’ve heard about cloud computing before, haven’t you? It means a type of Internet-based computing. In particular, storage, servers or applications delivered to an organisations’ computers or devices through the internet as an on-demand service.

From a garage in Bellevue to a presence felt worldwide, Amazon has significantly changed the way that we consume goods. The company, incorporated in 1994, thought big right from its early days. In 1995, they started to sell and ship their first book to all 50 U.S. states and 45 countries around the world.

Around ten years later, in 2006, Amazon launched a subsidiary, Amazon Web Services (AWS). Back then, it was a robust technology platform consisting only of some disparate tools and services. Meanwhile, AWS has become one of the, if not the, biggest on-demand cloud computing providers in the world, with a huge variety of services. The more than 125 services include for example databases, data storage services, management tools or media services.

Testing cloud computing concepts to increase customer satisfaction

The AWS Partner Network (APN) is the global partner program for AWS. The Network helps APN Partners to build successful AWS-based businesses or solutions by providing their partners with business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support. APN Technology Partners provide software solutions that are either hosted on or integrated with the AWS platform. Such technology partners include Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), SaaS, PaaS, developer tools, management and security vendors.

AWS is a cloud provider, which is well-known and has a good reputation. It allows protel to test concepts and prototypes in the cloud, being supported by AWS’s team of experts. This, in turn, helps us to develop solutions in such a way that they perfectly fit the specific needs of our customers and technology partners worldwide.

Our cloud-based hotel management software protel Air, as well as our strategic cloud solutions protel CENTRAL and the protel Hospitality Platform, are already hosted on AWS.

“To be an AWS Technology partner is just the logical next step for us to drive new technologies delivering our customers and partners the best solutions for their needs”, explains Thulackshan Mohan, Director Software Development & IT Operations at protel.

Sharing the same enthusiasm

Being part of Amazon’s network deepens our AWS knowledge and skills, differentiating our business in order to better serve our customer’s needs. And this is what it’s all about, right? Meeting or even surpassing the expectations of our partners and customers is certainly one of the most important objectives for us to accomplish. Both Amazon and protel have been founded in 1994. We’re sharing the same enthusiasm for cloud computing and tech. So, stay tuned for more exciting hospitality technology.
