Listing Serverless Applications with Your Amazon Machine Images on AWS Marketplace
By using serverless applications alongside existing Amazon Machine Images, ISVs can provide customers with solutions that are easier to use, more elastic, and more scalable. AWS Marketplace recently announced a feature that enables sellers to publish solutions comprised of AMIs and serverless applications that customers can deploy AWS CloudFormation. This makes it easier for customers to deploy software solutions, rather than ISVs packaging AWS Lambda code into an AMI or referencing their own Amazon S3 bucket.
