The agreement expands on Carahsoft’s existing AWS relationship to further cloud adoption and modernization for Carahsoft’s independent software vendors (ISV), reseller partners and Public Sector customers.

“The strategic collaboration agreement with AWS reinforces our commitment to empowering our channel partners and Public Sector customers to accelerate their cloud adoption journeys,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft President. “The SCA creates a vast number of opportunities for Carahsoft to support ISVs and resellers in using AWS to transform their business, accelerate time-to-market and level up their AWS engagement to securely drive modernization in the Public Sector.”
