RHEL on AWS
If you choose to run RHEL applications on AWS, you get some important benefits.

If you are an ISV and you ship products for RHEL, you can now list those products in the AWS Marketplace and sell them to hundreds of thousands of active AWS customers all over the world. This can help shrink your sales cycle, and we’ll take care of all of the billing, disbursements, and billing for you.
