New AWS Test Drives Added Across Solution Areas

A lot of action happened throughout the week at re:Invent 2015, including the launch of a record number of AWS Test Drives leading up to the event and during the week. The Test Drive team was hard at work throughout re:Invent providing demos of these test drives, and today I want to highlight all of the great Test Drives launched.


It’s no secret how highly I think of the AWS Test Drive program. Providing customers with a Test Drive of your solution on AWS is a very effective way to help educate customers on the value your solution can bring to address their business needs on AWS. Test Drives are also an effective way for you to accelerate the sales cycle by transitioning customers to Proof of Concepts (POCs). I’m excited to share with you the wealth of new Test Drives recently launched, and I encourage you to think about how you can utilize the AWS Test Drive program to provide additional value to customers on AWS, and to build your business. Please note that a number of these Test Drives cut across solution areas and categories.

I’d like to highlight this test drive from one of our newest Premier APN Partners. The REAN Managed Service Provider Test Drive shows how you can use various monitoring, alerting, and dashboard tools combined with the programmatic access to AWS infrastructure and logs to create a comprehensive view of your cloud-based infrastructure. This test drive will walk the user through setting up a representative business application, Drupal, and the management tools as part of a Managed Services Provider offering to enable a secured architecture in the cloud, along with the tools that provide VPN access, log ingestion, monitoring, dash boarding, and securing the security posture of the Amazon EC2 instances within your Virtual Private Cloud.
