We are delighted to announce that Tim Brennan, our Infrastructure Engineer, has been awarded Associate status as an AWS Certified Solutions Professional. Tim has worked as a member of our Technical team for 8 years and his recent achievement certifies his expertise and capabilities to develop secure and robust cloud-based applications.
The Associate exam challenges individuals that have pre-existing experience in designing distributed applications and systems. The following concepts are covered by the exam:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the largest cloud-based system that offers a secure platform for delivering compute power, database storage, content delivery and many other functionalities to help businesses scale and grow. The highly regarded Associate accreditation demonstrates Tim’s knowledge to perform a solution based architecture role.
AWS certified status combined with our many years’ experience of on-premise IT means that Blue Frontier is now in a position to advise clients holistically about their requirements. We can advise on the whole range of cloud services available from AWS and determine the best solution; be that wholly in the cloud, a hybrid deployment or fully on-premise.
“Tim’s accreditation as an AWS Certified Solutions Architect supports his years of practical experience building solutions for our clients with AWS, leveraging the unique technologies, economies of scale, and flexibility of this platform. This also marks another step towards Blue Frontier gaining Consulting partner status with Amazon which will further enhance our credibility in the hosted services marketplace.”
Marc Whittingham – Technical Director, Blue Frontier
Tim will be looking to progress to being an AWS SysOps Administrator – Associate to validate his technical expertise in deployment, management, and operations on the AWS platform.
And it’s not just Tim. Other members of our technical team are also working towards AWS certifications in the Architect stream and Security specialty areas. With a number of hosted systems already being implemented for our clients, the technical team will be undertaking a large re-architecting of our hosting environment which will involve a large-scale migration to AWS services.
We have a great team of specialists who are dedicated to delivering the very best service to our clients. We encourage self-development, and while Tim’s recent success helps to raise the profile for Blue Frontier, it is, more importantly, recognition to his hard work and highly valuable knowledge and skillset. So, we would like to say a big thank you and congratulations to Tim!
