Amazon Web Services this week announced the first six AWS Partner Network (APN) consulting partners that will be inducted into its AWS MSP program.

They include 2nd WatchDatapipe, SmartronixCascadeoDay1 Solutions and RightBrain Networks.

“We created the program in order to help our customers to find AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners who can deliver managed services in the cloud,” AWS said in a blog post.

It said that in order for an APN Partner to become a member, their offering must set “a high bar and they must pass an independent audit of their AWS Managed Service capability.”

The company’s managed service provider program was first announced at its AWS re:Invent program last year, where the company promised increased support for its partner ecosystem, including increased spending and training.

“We strive to provide APN Partners with the guidance they need to develop a successful and comprehensive cloud managed service practice,” the company said.
