Customers love using Aiven services together with services from hyper scale cloud providers. Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched its first cloud computing services back in 2006, becoming the first hyper-scale cloud computing provider in the process. Since then, it has continued to innovate and has accelerated its famous 'pace of innovation', ever since, establishing a durable position as the hyper scale market leader.

Given this, it's not surprising that many Aiven customers are also AWS customers, and are already using Aiven services with AWS services. Many of these customers have told us that they are looking for ways to simplify their usage and consumption of Aiven's portfolio of open source data infrastructure services.

We’re excited to announce that the full power of Aiven’s open source data platform is now seamlessly available to AWS customers via the AWS Marketplace. This is an important milestone in our AWS partnership and will deepen our collaboration with AWS.

What’s new?

How GLOBO provides omnichannel services with Aiven and AWS

GLOBO is a B2B provider of translation technology and services, enabling organizations to communicate with their customers in any language through a simple platform. Its omnichannel services include on-demand interpreting, translation, localization and more. According to Jonathan De Jong, the VP of Engineering at GLOBO, partnering with Aiven and AWS has been crucial for the company's success, enabling it to focus on its core business activities. De Jong explains, "What we built with Aiven and AWS was the ability to hyperscale our database, we kind of outsourced the ability to build a highly available platform. This is something really important for a small team - to not need that expertise in-house and to have the teams at Aiven and AWS give us those capabilities."
