AWS Announces Flexible SaaS Subscriptions For AWS Marketplace

Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), today announced that customers can now subscribe to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications directly through AWS Marketplace. With SaaS Subscriptions on AWS Marketplace, customers can start using third-party SaaS and Application Programming Interface (API) products with just a few clicks, and pay through their existing AWS bill. Customers can now subscribe to SaaS products and APIs from Alert Logic, Aspera, Avalara, Bitium, Cloudinary, Cloudyn, Datadog, Datapath, Dome9 Security, Druva, Dynatrace, HERE, NetApp, New Relic, Pitney Bowes, Qubole, Signiant, Solano Labs, Solodev, Sumo Logic, and Trend Micro, with new independent software vendors (ISVs) to be added regularly. To get started with SaaS Subscriptions for AWS Marketplace, visit: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/saas.

AWS Marketplace features more than 3,500 software listings from popular software vendors across 35 product categories, and over 100,000 active customers around the globe rely on it to find, buy, and immediately start using software that runs on AWS. AWS Marketplace already offers more than 800 SaaS and API listings. Now, ISVs can let AWS handle the metering and billing when customers purchase these products. With a flexible range of metering dimensions, ISVs can give customers options to pay in ways that best suit their needs. Deploying applications is simple, so customers can get SaaS applications up and running more quickly and get the security and scalability benefits of software built on AWS without having to manage the infrastructure it runs on.

With SaaS Subscriptions on AWS Marketplace, customers who use dozens of SaaS products across their organizations can manage all of the procurement, subscriptions, and payments in a single place, avoiding the hassle of dealing with separate bills from multiple ISVs. Customers get a single monthly bill that includes their SaaS usage charges along with charges for the other AWS Marketplace products and AWS services they use. Wider and easier access to SaaS products helps customers focus squarely on what differentiates their business, with less time and effort spent managing applications, infrastructure, procurement, and billing.
