Organizations today face a number of resilience challenges—from data and state failures to downtime caused by code deployment issues or unexpected events. The rise of remote teams and complex, distributed systems coupled with high expectations from customers to be “always on, always available” means the need for business resilience is greater than ever.

Historically, companies that prioritize operational resilience achieve greater system availability—ultimately boosting their bottom line. Beyond financial stability, having a comprehensive resiliency framework can protect a brand’s reputation and boost customer trust. As a result, they can provide end users with the consistent brand experience they demand—driving revenue and brand loyalty.

To support this need, we’re excited to announce the AWS Resilience Competency, which helps Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers improve the availability and resilience of critical workloads in the cloud.

This Competency highlights specialized AWS Partners offering professional consulting and engineering services that include: defining and measuring availability metrics; reviewing customers’ operational and development resilience posture and remediating risk; testing and protecting workloads with disaster recovery plans; and developing solutions that have high availability and resilience as a standard.

AWS Resilience Competency Partners provide tailored guidance and solutions to help organizations achieve the highest system availability—ensuring they’re always ready to meet the demands of their end customers.

Launch Partner Showcase

The AWS Competency Program is designed to highlight AWS Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas.

Leveraging AWS Cloud Adoption Framework best practices, AWS Resilience Competency Partner offerings are validated by AWS experts across three categories:

  • Resilience Design — Helps customers build cloud architecture for business-critical workloads sensitive to unplanned downtime. Partners validate that architectural design have a resilient posture and minimal operational intervention is required to ensure the availability and continuity of business-critical workloads. Partners also help customers design applications capable of withstanding service disruptions by utilizing resilient software design patterns, building a DevOps resilience practice, and implementing self-healing mechanisms. This is done based on extensive observability of business, application metrics, and AWS infrastructure health monitoring to safeguard application availability needs.
  • Resilience Operations — Provides services to test distributed applications that deliberately introduce failure and faulty scenarios to verify its resilience in the face of disruptions. Partners can generate meaningful insights to monitor and predict customer resilience by using modern observability best practices. They also support customers in improving their centralized operations management incident handling posture—leveraging self-healing automation, built-in best practices, and integrations with customers’ existing operations, IT Service Management (ITSM), and third-party tools.
  • Resilience Recovery — Helps customers achieve business continuity plans by developing and implementing disaster recovery solutions. Working backward from the customer’s needs, partners design solutions for the most critical recovery point in time (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO), and provide operation teams automated and simplified run-books to speed up a critical environment recovery after cyber-attacks, human error, or other catastrophic events.

Partners with a solution validated by AWS in all three categories receive the Core Resilience designation, and are distinguished as providing the most comprehensive resilience services.
