eWeek: Amazon Web Services has launched a new online store featuring software that users can deploy on Amazon's cloud computing service. Called "AWS Marketplace," the store features software from 10gen, CA, Canonical, Couchbase, Check Point Software, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, Zend and other vendors. It also includes popular open source applications like Drupal, MediaWiki and Wordpress. Enterprises can use the company's 1-Click Deployment to quickly launch any application they'd like to try, and they'll pay based on usage.
"AWS Marketplace brings the same simple, trusted and secure online shopping experience that customers enjoy on Amazon.com’s retail Website to software built for the AWS platform, streamlining the process of doing research and purchasing software," said Amazon's Terry Hanold. "AWS Marketplace makes it even easier to run software on AWS because you can find a wide variety of AWS ecosystem providers’ solutions, in one place, where much of the work involved in building and deploying solutions on top of AWS has already been done for you by these solutions providers."
