Software development company Particular Presence Technologies (PPT) has achieved the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Delivery designation for AWS Lambda.

The news comes a few weeks after Amazon added Jamaica to its approved list of countries accepted for seller registration. As an AWS Partner Network (APN) member, PPT will deliver AWS cloud services to customers in the island.

AWS Lambda is a server-less computer service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers and pay only for the resources you consume. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS experience and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

“We’re extremely proud of the achievement — receiving this designation. It was a rigorous but worthwhile process with AWS. This reflects our beliefs that customers can benefit from the economies of scale that cloud computing presents and AWS Lambda has proven to be a powerful option in the quiver organisations,” said Delton Phillips, director of strategy and innovation at PPT.

Phillips explained that AWS will transform cloud computing in Jamaica while delivering more affordable solutions.

“What AWS Lambda provides to businesses is essentially processing capacity in a pay-as-you-go type model. AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from start-ups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Service Delivery Program to help customers identify APN Consulting Partners,” he continued.

PPT is the first home-grown ‘Select Consulting Partner’ of AWS in the Caribbean region that provides developer tooling solutions validated by AWS server less experts. The company boasts a team of certified professional software developers dedicated to helping businesses achieve their goals of building applications that are cloud native.

As an AWS Lambda Partner, PPT will help companies build services and applications without the need to provision or manage servers and help them build or migrate solutions to a micro services architecture running on server-less computing.
With AWS Lambda, clients can also run code for virtually any type of application or backend service with zero administration. Phillips highlighted that the AWS automatically scales client’s application by running code in response to each event, so they only pay for the compute time they consume.
