SparkPost Named AWS Partner Network Advanced Technology Partner

Supports SparkPost's Focus to Deliver a Highly Performant and Reliable Cloud Email Service

SparkPost, the most performant cloud email delivery service available, today announced it has achieved Advanced Technology Partner status in the AWS Partner Network (APN). The APN is the global partner program focused on helping APN Partners build successful AWS-based businesses or solutions by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support. SparkPost has leveraged AWS since its launch in 2014 and will continue to invest in the AWS Cloud to ensure the company meets customer needs for unmatched reliability and uptime.

SparkPost chose to build its industry-leading service on AWS because of its scalability, global availability, high security levels and cost alignment. The benefits and flexibility of AWS allow SparkPost to keep its focus entirely on high-performance email delivery and not on having to construct and operate the dated architecture of a data center.

That decision has paid off. In January 2014, SparkPost was in beta and handling a few million messages a month. Today, the leading email service delivers billions of messages a month for more than 20,000 active customers on its API-driven SparkPost cloud offering, including large enterprises such as Pinterest, Zillow, and CareerBuilder.

“Working with AWS gives us the agility we need to grow our service into a leading email delivery service, and that growth will continue as SparkPost builds on its strong momentum to deliver highly performant cloud email to an even broader set of customers,” said Phillip Merrick, CEO of SparkPost. “We’re extremely proud to be part of the AWS Partner Network and look forward to a long and successful relationship well into the future.”

SparkPost is a Gold Exhibiting Sponsor at the AWS Summit London on June 28, a Silver Exhibiting Sponsor at the AWS Summit Chicago on July 26-27, a Silver Exhibiting Sponsor at the AWS Summit New York City on August 14 and a Gold Exhibiting Sponsor at AWS re:Invent on November 27-December 1.
