Ankercloud's AWS Reselling: Because Efficiency Shouldn't Be Boring!

Dec 11, 2023
00

In the vast realm of cloud services, Ankercloud shines as a beacon of excellence, offering a unique proposition for businesses craving an exceptional AWS experience. As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, we don't just stick to the status quo of reselling; we tailor our services to local needs, bringing you a transparent and value-packed approach.

No Bill Mysteries, Just Clarity

Ankercloud's reselling services bring a breath of fresh air to billing. Picture this: at the beginning of each month, our reselling customers get a bill in their local currency, crystal clear and free of any sneaky additional costs or markups on official AWS prices. It's like a financial fairy tale that not only simplifies your accounting but also builds trust in the billing process.

More Bang for Your Buck, No Extra Charge

We don't stop at just reselling – Ankercloud throws in a bunch of extras without playing the fee game. Our reselling customers get a dedicated Account Manager, free Cloud Consulting Hours, complimentary Statement of Work and proposal creation, plus a sweet discount on Proof of Concept (PoC) Projects. It's like a value-added party that takes your AWS experience to the next level.

Cost Optimization, Security Boost

We get it – optimizing costs and beefing up security are top priorities. Our Reselling Agreement covers funded Well-Architected Reviews, ensuring your AWS resources not only pinch pennies but also rock the highest security standards.

Discounts Galore on Managed Services & DevOps Support

Exclusive discounts? Oh, you bet! Ankercloud's reselling customers snag special deals on our 24/7 Managed Services & DevOps Support, giving you cost-effective solutions for ongoing AWS resource management and support.

Easy Onboarding, Non-Stop Support

Becoming an Ankercloud Reselling customer is a breeze – all you need is your own AWS account, and our team is ready to assist with the setup if you're feeling a bit lost. We take pride in a smooth onboarding process and offer continuous support throughout your Reselling Agreement journey.

Exit Stage Left – Smooth and Transparent

Yes, we have a minimum 12-month contract, but ending things with us is as smooth as butter. From detangling your AWS account from our master account for billing to wiping out all access rights and servers, we handle the exit process with precision and care. Your AWS infrastructure and app documentation? Safely deleted, respecting your data privacy.

Ankercloud's AWS reselling services redefine the client-provider partnership, putting transparency, value, and customer joy at the forefront. Ready to elevate your AWS journey? Ankercloud is the trusty sidekick you've been searching for!"
