Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace is a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software.
AWS Marketplace is a curated digital catalog that provides a way for customers around the globe to find, buy, and immediately start using software that runs on AWS. The storage software products available on AWS Marketplace are provided and maintained by industry newcomers with born-in-the-cloud solutions as well as existing industry leaders. They include many mainstream storage products that are already familiar and commonly deployed in enterprises.
Every software product on AWS Marketplace has been through a curation process. On the product page, there can be one or more offerings for the product. When the seller submits a product in AWS Marketplace, they define the price of the product and the terms and conditions of use. When a consumer subscribes to a product offering, they agree to the pricing and terms and conditions set for the offer.
The product can be free to use or it can have an associated charge. The charge becomes part of your AWS bill, and after you pay, AWS Marketplace pays the seller. Products can take many forms. For example, a product can be offered as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that is instantiated using your AWS account. The product can also be configured to use AWS CloudFormation templates for delivery to the consumer. The product can also be software as a service (SaaS) offerings from an ISV, web ACL, set of rules, or conditions for AWS WAF.
