Stratalux, the leading AWS Managed Services Provider, today announced SmartStart, an entry-level service for existing Amazon Web Services customers, designed to reduce costs, simplify billing and provide service enhancements.
Stratalux's SmartStart picks up where Amazon Web Services support leaves off. “With our SmartStart service offering existing Amazon Web Services customers are able to benefit from basic IT support services such as backups, cost reporting, access controls, AWS technical support and improved billing,” said Jeremy Przygode, CEO Stratalux, Inc. “We find that many companies are using AWS, but are not taking care of basic IT needs like backup and security. With SmartStart our customers get the basic IT services they need at no additional cost. To become a Stratalux SmartStart customer our only requirement is that the customer has a minimum of ten running EC2 instances.”
Stratalux's SmartStart Service is a package of basic IT services that enhance Amazon Web Services. SmartStart features include:
AWS Business Support
Instantly save up to 10% on your AWS bill by receiving Amazon Business Support, providing 24/7 phone support with one hour response time directly from Amazon.
Automated Snapshot Backups
Receive automated EBS snapshot backups daily on all running instances. Snapshots are automatically managed keeping two weeks of daily snapshots and six months of monthly backups (Additional storage fees apply). Customizations are available at additional cost.
Daily Usage Report
Receive daily reports on all AWS assets. These emailed reports provide insights into your AWS resources and Reserved Instances allowing customers to make better pricing and cost optimization decisions.
Advanced Security Setup
Stratalux will work with your team to set up IAM user account access policies for your services. This ensures roles and responsibilities are accurately distributed and monitored, improving security and governance.
Stratalux will simplify billing to better conform to a customer’s accounting practices, including the ability to bill Net 30 or use credit card options. Additionally Stratalux can create customized invoices based upon customer needs such as department chargebacks and project codes, thereby reducing administrative cost.
According to Doug Camplejohn, CEO and Founder of Fliptop, “By leveraging Stratalux’s SmartStart service we have already saved over 10% on our Amazon bill. Knowing that we have AWS and Chef experts in our court to help us with our cloud needs ensures our continued success.”
