AWS Public Sector Selects Buurst as a Strategic Provider
for Smart Data Migration Workloads

HOUSTON — May 27, 2021 — Buurst, a leading enterprise-class data performance company, announced today that Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector has selected the company as a strategic provider for smart data migration. Buurst’s new Fuusion™ technology enables organizations to accelerate the migration of application workloads to AWS and AWS cloud-native services for data orchestration.

As an early adopter of AWS, Buurst has been active in the AWS Marketplace for eight years, supporting joint customers. Buurst was also recently added to the AWS ISV Accelerate program, an invitation-only tier for software companies that have met stringent technical and revenue requirements with AWS. The company’s commitment to AWS includes three AWS Partner Network (APN) competencies in migration, storage, and public sector, qualifying for joint go-to-market initiatives with AWS and their global Partners.

The Smart Data Migration program offered with Buurst Fuusion provides organizations an edge-to-cloud solution into AWS that is orchestrated into other AWS cloud-native services such as EFS, FSx, Redshift, Rekognition, Kineses, and Athena. Additionally, Fuusion’s patented, built-in UltraFast™ data acceleration feature securely transfers data at speeds up to 100 times the average transmission rates. This capability is critical for organizations with remote sites connected via high latency network connections such as satellite, 5G, cellular, or DSL.

“We are pleased to see Buurst’s involvement in many of our key Partner initiatives designed to move data workloads into the cloud where improved decision making can take place through visualization or analytics,” said Sandy Carter, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector Partners and Programs, AWS. “Launching smart data migrations between AWS, Buurst and Carahsoft enables public sector organizations globally to rapidly and securely migrate data to a wide range of AWS cloud-native services for the enhanced protection of legacy data.”

“Working with Buurst and AWS allows our public-sector customers to deploy the latest innovative technology in the cloud and at the edge. Buurst Fuusion enables public sector organizations to aggregate their data quickly and to migrate those workloads to advanced AWS cloud-native services securely,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft President. “We are looking forward to this relationship that will help better support our government customers and reseller partners.”

“We are announcing this new AWS public sector initiative today as we continue to expand our longtime relationship with AWS,” said Vic Mahadevan, Buurst CEO. “As a strategic AWS provider, our goal is to securely accelerate data migration from the edge to AWS for the worldwide public sector market.”
