Storage and data management solutions provider, pixitmedia, has  qualified as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN).

The certification comes after an audit facilitated by AWS’s in-house experts in which pixitmedia’s product portfolio, business, and technical capabilities, including best practices for architectural design and security, were vetted, validated, and verified against foundational requirements.

To be recognized as an AWS Technology Partner, pixitmedia showcased its partnership with Union VFX, who required increased levels of storage and processing power to create an ambitious and intricately detailed scene in post, whilst running other projects concurrently. The studio needed to scale their hardware quickly, but carefully, and worked with pixitmedia to build a high-performance pipeline capable of bursting to AWS supported by ngenea from pixitmedia.

Andrew Wierzan, VP of Product at pixitmedia, comments: “pixitmedia is not just another storage vendor, we deliver solutions that solve our customers day to day data workflow challenges. With incredibly simple push button deployment. With pixstor cloud running on AWS, customers benefit from all of the performance, scalability, and data management benefits of our platforms. Receiving the highly regarded AWS Partner status solidifies our position as a trusted industry expert for production and collaboration in the cloud.”
