Amazon launches the AWS marketplace for apps in the cloud

Amazon has announced the launch of the AWS Marketplace. It allows customers to shop for software and services that leverage the Amazon Web Services cloud. Customers get pre-configured software and services available and ready-to-go with a 1-click purchase. They can then take advantage of Amazon’s cloud and pay for what they use, by the hour or by the month.

With AWS Marketplace, software and Software as a Service (SaaS) providers with offerings that run on the AWS Cloud can benefit from increased customer awareness, simplified deployment, and automated billing. AWS Marketplace features a wide selection of commercial and free IT and business software, including software infrastructure such as databases and application servers, developer tools, and business applications – available from popular vendors such as 10gen, CA, Canonical, Couchbase, Check Point Software, IBM, Microsoft, SAP AG, and Zend, as well as many widely used open source offerings including Drupal, MediaWiki, and WordPress.
