Radio.Cloud Joins the AWS Partner Network


It says it is the company behind first 100% native cloud-based radio automation, content management and production system. Now, it can add that it is a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN).

“After meeting with AWS at our booth at the 2022 NAB Show, we knew there was a natural synergy,” says Christian Brenner, founder and CEO of Radio.Cloud.

Just a couple of months later, the company has completed the Foundational Technical Review.

Brenner explains, “While many other radio software vendors are now offering a so-called ‘Lift and Shift’ – taking the old software and running it on a virtual machine in the cloud – Radio.Cloud’s ‘Native Cloud’ approach takes full advantage of countless cloud-specific products and features that legacy software can’t do. It’s a completely different operation, so getting the Radio.Cloud platform in the AWS Partner Network is a significant milestone for us.”

Radio.Cloud joins as an AWS Partner for cloud services in the radio industry. The company will work with AWS to offer cloud solutions to broadcasters and other content providers. The browser-based platform encourages remote collaboration, allows for production and voice-tracking from anywhere and delivers flexibility to radio programmers.

“Being able to work directly with AWS speaks to the security and reliability of Radio.Cloud,” Radio.Cloud Chief Strategy Officer Jim Hammond added. “AWS has long been recognized as the leading cloud services provider and it is an honor to meet their rigid standards of a true network partner. We’re looking forward to a close relationship with AWS and bringing the technological advantages to our Radio.Cloud customers”.

The platform is now available worldwide to terrestrial AM/FM radio stations, DAB+, and internet/online stations after successfully completing the Foundational Technical Review (FTR).

The FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in products or solutions. It’s led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect (PSA) who reviews AWS Partner products and solutions against a specific set of requirements based on the security, reliability, and operational excellence pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework. Using the FTR guidelines, Radio.Cloud and other AWS Partners can review projects and workloads against each requirement before selecting the best practices to follow.
