Alkira has announced the expansion of its business ties with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The firm also announced integration with AWS Transit Gateway Connect, a service that allows native integration of software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) appliances with AWS. 

The combined solution will provide seamless AWS capabilities to Alkira customers and simplify cloud networking services for on-premises, cloud, and multi-cloud environments.

Furthermore, Alkira announced a multi-year international agreement with AWS customer Warner Music Group to deploy Alkira Cloud Services Exchange (CSX).

“Alkira is thrilled with this closer business engagement with AWS to offer hundreds of thousands of AWS customers a more sophisticated, yet simplified network infrastructure, consumed completely as-a-service,” said Amir Khan, CEO and founder of Alkira.

Khan added, “Visionaries like Ralph Munsen, CIO of Warner Music Group can now realize the company’s cloud networking vision and consume their complete network infrastructure directly from the only comprehensive Cloud Network infrastructure as-a-Service (CNaaS) in the AWS.”

Alkira has also been accepted into the AWS ISV Accelerate Program, a co-sell program for AWS partners that offer solutions integrated with or running on AWS.

Alkira will also participate in the AWS Global Startup Program aimed at supporting mid-to-late-stage startups that have raised institutional funding, achieved product-market fit, and are ready for scaling.

“Cloud has a lot of promise, but we’re always working to improve our network agility and performance and to ensure a seamless process especially in this fast-moving virtual world we’re doing business in,” said Ralph Munsen, CIO of Warner Music Group.

Munsen continued, “Alkira addresses our cloud networking infrastructure as-a-service needs and we’re pleased to see the close collaboration with AWS. WMG evaluated multiple multi-cloud networking solutions and selected Alkira because the Alkira CSX greatly simplifies management of our network infrastructure and enables us to focus on the growth of our business.”

Together, Alkira and AWS will provide customers with enhanced agility, more advanced networking, and improved procurement experiences.
