Why choose SkillSet as your AWS partner?

AWS helps you achieve this level of security by allowing for even greater visibility into your workloads, as well as access to a suite of tools and services to meet your unique needs.

With over 30 years combined experience across multiple sectors, the team can be trusted to deliver.

3 High-quality content

SkillSet has delivered high-quality content to a vast array of organisations across multiple industry sectors. Not only can this shared experience be called upon to deliver your project, but the team is highly-skilled at delivering new and unique content in close collaboration with you.

4 Low latency

A responsive, available website is a crucial component of your organisation. With SkillSet and AWS, your customers can access your website anywhere in the world with low latency. There is no need to purchase hardware, build facilities, or find a co-location provider. You can safeguard the availability of your website even in the case of rare events like natural disasters.

5 Fast deployment

With AWS, your organisation can deploy a scalable and highly available website simply and quickly. Unlike traditional approaches that require you to find a co-location provider or build a data center, AWS allows you to reach your customers in a matter of minutes.

6 Low costs

As your website traffic ebbs and flows, AWS automatically scales capacity up and down, allowing you to only pay for what you use and therefore improve resource utilisation. AWS offers training, reference architectures, SDKs for many popular platforms and more, making it easy to get started.
