In the world of digital solutions, the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace is where the cool kids shop. Within this curated digital catalog, you’ll find everything you could need to build digital solutions that power your business. What separates it from the other million or so places where you could source your digital solutions? Enterprise customers actually trust it — hundreds of thousands of them. That means less risk exposure for your data, less friction in finding and implementing solutions, and more peace of mind overall.

Practically speaking, AWS Marketplace empowers customers to find, test, deploy, and manage third-party software services and data from thousands of listings. The preconfigured solutions are all 100% tested and ready to deploy, whether you want to use Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), software as a service (SaaS), or other formats. They also offer professional services to help you configure, deploy, and manage these solutions. You can easily search, test, buy, and deploy right from the AWS interface.

How does the AWS Marketplace help?

Simpler Provisioning and Governance

Because AWS solutions are pre-configured, you can literally launch software with just a few clicks. Their pricing options include everything from free trials to hourly, monthly, annual, and Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) models. And, in a move that makes company bookkeepers smile, these are ALL billed from one source, with charges appearing on a single AWS billing statement. You can even negotiate savings on custom terms like long-term commitments.

Speed and Agility

Even though the AWS library runs deep, you can find the solution you need quickly and easily. You can test things out. You can double-check how products stack up against your policies or compliance requirements. You can even tap into AWS Professional Services to get premium support like assessments, training, and managed services.

Empowerment and Control

You want your team to be free to innovate, but don’t want to lose control over your technology stack. We get it. So does AWS. The AWS License Manager helps distribute, activate, and track your software entitlements for every platform you provision from the AWS Marketplace. They even offer Cost Allocation Tagging to give you performance cost reporting across your solution ecosystem.

What are the top solutions available on the AWS Marketplace?

The independent software vendors who work with Amazon to build out this powerful solutions database represent the following categories: security, networking, machine learning, storage, business intelligence, database, DevOps, Software-as-a-Service, and related professional services software.

How can Panzura help you maximize your AWS experience?

If you have an AWS Marketplace account — or plan on getting one in the near future — you can easily deploy Panzura on your existing AWS infrastructure, integrating our solutions directly into your other AWS stack products. You’ll still have access to Panzura’s flexible pricing models, or you can bring your own Panzura license to the AWS Marketplace. But now, you can leverage tools like AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) or Amazon CloudWatch to maximize the efficiency of your Panzura experience.

You’ll also be able to leverage the inherent scalability and reliability of AWS infrastructure instead of provisioning multiple other cloud providers. With Panzura on AWS, you can scale your storage up or down without worrying about managing any underlying infrastructure. It’s the best of intelligent, immutable object storage and a hypercloud ecosystem together. A perfect match if we’ve ever seen one.
