We’re excited to announce three new features for members of AWS Activate:

  • One-on-one office hours with an AWS Solutions Architect. AWS Activate members from around the world can now book one-on-one office hours with an AWS Solutions Architect. A Solutions Architect has deep technical expertise and can address issues such as security, architectural best practices, application performance, high availability, and cost optimization. Discussing your use cases and architectural requirements with a Solutions Architect can help make sure that you are properly leveraging AWS services and are deploying scalable, resilient, cost-effective solutions in the cloud.
  • Expanded Training in the Self-Starter package. Members of the Self-Starter Package now have access to AWS Essentials eLearning training (normally $600) plus eight tokens for self-paced labs (normally $30 per token). These trainings can help you learn the fundamentals of AWS products and services and give you hands-on experience working with AWS technologies. Startups eligible for the Portfolio Package will continue to have access to these trainings.
  • New exclusive offers: As a member of AWS Activate, you have access to exclusive offers from third parties that can add valuable tools to your startup. We're happy to announce seven new offers today, including offers from Bitnami, Cloudability, CopperEgg, Amazon Login and Pay, Nitrous.IO, Stackdriver, and Trend Micro.
