Currently an Advanced Technology Partner within the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN), MicroStrategy chose in April 2015 to go ‘all-in’ with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the core infrastructure platform that powers MicroStrategy analytics in the cloud.  MicroStrategy is leveraging the full depth and breadth of AWS offerings, including the global footprint of AWS, and providing its customers with a fast, flexible, and cost-effective way to deploy enterprise analytics at scale.

“MicroStrategy Secure Cloud eliminates months of procurement, installation, configuration and tuning, and delivers a secure cloud environment to start building transformational analytics applications almost immediately,” added Zolfaghari. “Hosted in whichever geography a customer chooses, MicroStrategy Secure Cloud is highly flexible and reliable.”

“We are pleased to have MicroStrategy’s enterprise software platforms available on the AWS Cloud,” said Terry Wise, Vice President of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With data analytics as the lifeline of any business, our ‘all-in’ partners like MicroStrategy rely on the infrastructure and platform services from AWS to support their current solutions as well as their future innovations.”

Amazon Redshift, Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR), and Amazon Relational Database Services (Amazon RDS) are core elements of MicroStrategy 10 Secure Enterprise on AWS and complete the end-to-end solution allowing MicroStrategy users to connect to and analyze data from any data source.
