Some marketplace offerings are billed on an hourly basis, many with a cost-saving annual option designed to line up with the procurement cycles of our enterprise customers. Other offerings are available in SaaS (Software as a Service) form and are billed based on consumption units specified by the seller. The SaaS model (described in <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-saas-subscriptions-on-aws-marketplace/">New – SaaS subscriptions on AWS Marketplace</a>) give sellers the flexibility to bill for actual usage: number of active hosts, number of requests, GB of log files processed, and so forth.</p> <p>Recently we extended the SaaS model with the addition of SaaS contracts, which my colleague Brad Lyman introduced in his post, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/apn/announcing-saas-contracts-a-feature-to-simplify-saas-procurement-on-aws-marketplace/">Announcing SaaS Contracts, a Feature to Simplify SaaS Procurement on AWS Marketplace</a>. The contracts give our customers the opportunity save money by setting up monthly subscriptions that can be expanded to cover a one, two, or three year contract term, with automatic, configurable renewals. Sellers can provide services that require up-front payment or that offer discounts in exchange for a usage commitment.</p> <p>Since Brad has already covered the seller side of this powerful and flexible new model, I would like to show you what it is like to purchase a SaaS contract. Let’s say that I want to use Splunk Cloud. I simply search for it as usual:</p> <p><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?page=1&amp;searchTerms=splunk"><img class="aligncenter size-medium" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/mkt_search_saas_splunk_2.png" width="900" height="409" /></a>I click on <strong>Splunk Cloud</strong> and see that it is available in SaaS Contract form:</p> <p><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B06XK299KV?qid=1495224795283&amp;sr=0-2&amp;ref_=srh_res_product_title"><img class="aligncenter size-medium" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/mkt_splunk_saas_pop_1.png" width="713" height="380" /></a>I can also see and review the pricing options, noting that pricing varies by location, index volume, and subscription duration:</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-medium" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/mkt_splunk_prices_1.png" width="436" height="779" /></p> <p>I click on <strong>Continue</strong>. Since I do not have a contract with Splunk for this software, I’ll be redirected to the vendor’s site to create one as part of the process. I choose my location, index volume, and contract duration, and opt for automatic renewal, and then click on <strong>Create Contract</strong>:</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-medium" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/mkt_splunk_pick_it_1.png" width="900" height="652" /></p> <p>This sets up my subscription, and I need only set up my account with Splunk:</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-medium" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/mkt_splunk_subbed_1.png" width="900" height="412" /></p> <p>I click on <strong>Set Up Your Account</strong> and I am ready to move forward by setting up my custom URL on the Splunk site:</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-medium" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/mkt_splunk_set_acct_1.png" width="900" height="368" /></p> <p>This feature is available now and you can start using it today.</p> <p>— <a href="https://twitter.com/jeffbarr">Jeff</a>;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Box Platform on AWS Marketplace – Lambda Blueprints & Sample Code https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/box-platform-on-aws-marketplace-lambda-blueprints-sample-code/ Wed, 14 Jun 2017 21:48:07 +0000 0cb3461583e7a3713c3c40691db1aeff8f7672c2 Box is a cloud-based file sharing and content management system, with an API that recently became available in AWS Marketplace (Box Platform – Cloud Content Management APIs).

Today we are adding Management Tools as a new Partner Solution to the Service Delivery program, and <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/servicecatalog/">AWS Service Catalog</a> is the first product to launch in that category.&nbsp; APN Service Catalog partners help&nbsp;create catalogs of IT services that are approved by the customer’s organization for use on AWS. &nbsp;With AWS&nbsp;Service&nbsp;Catalog, customers&nbsp;and APN partners&nbsp;can centrally manage commonly deployed IT services to help achieve consistent governance and meet compliance requirements&nbsp;while enabling users to self-provision approved services.</p> <p>We have an enormous APN partner ecosystem, with thousands of consulting partners, and this program simplifies the process of finding partners experienced in implementing Service Catalog.&nbsp; The consulting partners we are launching this program with today are BizCloud Experts, Cloudticity, Flux7, Logicworks, and Wipro.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-17327" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/04/19/ServiceCatalog-png.png" alt="" width="600" height="300" /></p> <p>The process our partners go through to achieve the Service Catalog designation is not easy.&nbsp; All of the partners must have publicly referenceable customers using Service Catalog, and there is a technical review to ensure that they understand Service Catalog almost as well as our own Solution Architects do!</p> <p>One common theme from all of the partner’s technical applications was the requirement to help their customers meet HIPAA compliance objectives.&nbsp; HIPAA requires three essential components: 1) establishment of processes, 2) enforcement of processes, and 3) separation of roles.&nbsp; Service Catalog helps with all three.&nbsp; Using <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/">AWS CloudFormation</a> templates, Service Catalog Launch constraints, and identity and access management (IAM) based permission to Service Catalog portfolios, partners are able to establish and strictly enforce a process for infrastructure delivery for their customers.&nbsp; Separation of roles is achieved by using Service Catalog’s launch constraints and IAM, and our partners were able to create separation of roles such that developers were agile but were only allowed to do what their policies permitted them to.</p> <p>Another common theme was the use of Service Catalog for self-service discovery and launch of AWS services.&nbsp; Customers can navigate to the Service Catalog to view the dashboard of products available to them, and they are empowered to launch their own resources.</p> <p>Customers also use Service Catalog for standardization and central management.&nbsp; The customer’s service catalog manager can manage resource updates and changes via the Service Catalog dashboard.&nbsp; Tags can be standardized across instances launched from the Service Catalog.</p> <p>Below are visual diagrams of Service Catalog workflows created for two of BizCloud Expert’s customers.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-17386" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/04/20/Service-CAtalog-diagram1-1024x641.png" alt="" width="640" height="401" /></p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-17387" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/04/20/Service-Catalog-Diagram-2-1024x670.png" alt="" width="640" height="419" /></p> <p>Ready to learn more?&nbsp;

It’s not always a word you hear associated with technology but one might argue it should be a central tenet for the application of technology in healthcare, and I was reminded of that fact as I wandered the halls representing <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/" title="">AWS</a> at <a href="http://www.himssconference.org/">HIMSS17</a>, the Healthcare Information and Management System Society annual meeting.</p> <p>At Amazon, we’re taught to obsess over our customers, but this obsession takes on a new level of responsibility when those customers are directly working on improving the lives of patients and the overall wellness of society. Thinking about the challenges that healthcare professionals are dealing with every day drives home how important it is for AWS to ensure that using the cloud in healthcare is as frictionless as possible. So with that in mind I wanted to share some of the things I saw in and around HIMSS17 regarding healthcare and AWS.</p> <p>I started my week at the <a href="http://www.hitcloudforum.com/orlando/2017">HIMSS Cloud Computing Forum</a>, which was a new full-day HIMSS pre-day focused on educating the healthcare community on cloud. I was particularly struck by the breadth of cloud use cases being explored throughout the industry, even compared to a few years ago. The program featured presentations on cloud-based care coordination, precision medicine, and security. Perhaps one of the most interesting presentations came from <a href="http://www.hitcloudforum.com/file/186/download?token=HjkddHP4">Jessica Kahn from the Center for Medicare &amp; Medicaid Services (CMS)</a>, talking about the analytics platform that CMS has built in the cloud along with <a href="https://www.nuna.com/">Nuna</a>. Jessica talked about how a cloud-based platform allows CMS to make decisions based on data that is a month old, rather than a year or years old. Additionally, using an automated, rules-based approach, policymakers can directly query the data without having to rely on developers, bringing agility. Nuna has already gained a number of insights from hosting this de-identified Medicaid data for policy research, and is now looking to expand its services to private insurance.</p> <p>The exhibition opened on Monday, and I was really excited to talk to customers about the new <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/mp/health/">Healthcare &amp; Life Sciences category</a> in the <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/" title="">AWS Marketplace</a>. AWS Marketplace is a managed and curated software catalog that helps customers innovate faster and reduce costs, by making it easy to discover, evaluate, procure, immediately deploy and manage 3rd party software solutions. When a customer purchases software via the Marketplace, all of the infrastructure needed to run on AWS is deployed automatically, using the same pay-as-you-go pricing model that AWS uses. Creation of a dedicated category of healthcare is a huge step forward in making it easier for our customers to deploy cloud-based solutions. Our new category features telehealth solutions, products for managing HIPAA compliance, and products that can be used for revenue cycle management from <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/partners/" title="">AWS Partner Network (APN)</a> such as <a href="http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170221005960/en/PokitDok-Launches-AWS-Marketplace-APN-Advanced-Technology">PokitDok</a>. We’re just getting started with this category; look for new additions throughout the year.</p> <p>Later in the week, I tried to spend time at the number of APN Partners exhibiting at HIMSS this year, and it’s safe to say our ecosystem also had lots of moments to shine. Orion Health announced that they will <a href="https://orionhealth.com/us/about-us/press-releases/orion-health-begins-migration-of-patient-records-to-amazon-web-services/">migrate their Amadeus precision medicine platform to the AWS Cloud</a>. Orion has been deploying on top of AWS for a while now, including notably <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/solutions/case-studies/orion-health/">the California-wide Health Information Exchange CalINDEX</a>. Amadeus currently manages 110 million patient records; the migration will represent a significant volume of clinical data running on AWS. New APN Partner Merck announced <a href="http://www.alexadiabeteschallenge.com/">a new Alexa skill challenge</a>, asking developers to come up with new, innovative ways to use Alexa in the management of chronic disease. Healthcare Competency Partner ClearDATA <a href="http://hitinfrastructure.com/news/cleardata-debuts-healthcare-cloud-container-management-option">announced its new fully-managed Containers-as-a-Service product</a>, which simplifies development of healthcare applications by providing developers with a HIPAA-compliant environment for building, testing, and deployment.</p> <p>This is only a small sample of the activity going on at HIMSS this year, and it’s impossible to capture everything in one post. You learn more about healthcare on AWS on our <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/health/">Cloud Computing in Healthcare page</a>. Nonetheless, after spending four days diving in to healthcare IT, it was great to see how AWS is enabling our healthcare customers and partners deliver solutions that are impacting millions of lives across the globe.</p> <p>–<a href="https://twitter.com/jordingreen">Jordin Green</a></p> AWS Marketplace Adds Healthcare & Life Sciences Category https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/aws-marketplace-adds-healthcare-life-sciences-category/ Thu, 16 Feb 2017 15:00:11 +0000 6060e618b792a1bb82c9e6b7cb9dda36ba0b34f4 Wilson To and&nbsp;Luis Daniel Soto are our guest bloggers today, telling you about a new industry vertical category that is being added to the&nbsp;AWS Marketplace.Check it out! -Ana AWS Marketplace is a managed and curated software catalog that helps customers innovate faster and reduce costs, by making it easy to discover, evaluate, procure, immediately deploy […] <p><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/wilsonjamesto/">Wilson To</a> and&nbsp;Luis <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/luisdans">Daniel Soto</a> are our guest bloggers today, telling you about a new industry vertical category that is being added to the&nbsp;<a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace">AWS Marketplace</a>.Check it out!</p> <p>-Ana</p> <hr /> <p><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace">AWS Marketplace</a> is a managed and curated software catalog that helps customers innovate faster and reduce costs, by making it easy to discover, evaluate, procure, immediately deploy and manage 3<sup>rd</sup> party software solutions.&nbsp; To continue supporting our customers, we’re now adding a new industry vertical category: <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/mp/health">Healthcare &amp; Life Sciences</a>.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-16396" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/02/13/healthpost-1024x782.png" alt="healthpost" width="640" height="489" /></p> <p>This new category brings together best-of-breed software tools and solutions from our growing vendor ecosystem that have been adapted to, or built from the ground up, to serve the healthcare and life sciences industry.</p> <p><strong>Healthcare<br /> </strong>Within the AWS Marketplace HCLS category, you can find solutions for Clinical information systems, population health and analytics, health administration and compliance services.

The burden to comply is compounded by the use of legacy security frameworks and a lack of understanding of which services enable appropriate threat mitigations. It is further complicated by security responsibilities in relation to cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile applications.</p> <p><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/config/partners/allgress/">Allgress</a> helps minimize this burden by helping enterprise security and risk professionals assess, understand, and manage corporate risk. Allgress and AWS are working to offer a way to establish clear mappings from AWS services and 3rd party software solutions in AWS Marketplace to common security frameworks. The result for regulated customers within the <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/" title="">AWS Cloud</a> will be minimized business impact, increased security effectiveness, and reduced risk.</p> <p>The name of this new solution is <a href="https://awsrpm.allgress.com/login">Allgress Marketplace Regulatory Product Mapping Tool (RPM)</a><em><strong>.&nbsp;</strong></em> Allgress designed this tool specifically for customers deployed within AWS who want to reduce the complexity, increase the speed, and shorten the time frame of achieving compliance, including compliance with legislation such as Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and FISMA. Allgress <em>RPM</em> is designed to achieve these results by letting customers quickly map their regulatory security frameworks (such as ISO, NIST, and PCI-DSS controls) to AWS services, solutions in <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/mp/security/">AWS Markeplace</a>, and <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/partners/">APN</a> technology partner solutions. The tool even guides customers through the compliance process, providing focused content every step of the way.</p> <p>Here are the four simple steps to get a regulatory assessment:</p> <ol> <li>If you’re a new user, you can <strong><a href="https://awsrpm.allgress.com/login">Login</a> </strong>as a guest into the tool.

[…] <p>With so much going on at AWS, we often hear from readers asking for ways to help them make more informed decisions, or put together examples for their planning processes. Joining us today is <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/jimcarroll64">Jim Carroll</a>, a Sr. Category Leader with Amazon Marketplace to talk about AWS Networking services and solutions in the AWS Marketplace.</p> <p>-Ana</p> <hr /> <p>Last month we announced the new <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/now-open-aws-london-region/">AWS Region in London</a>. This new region expands our global infrastructure and provides our partners and customers with even more geographic options to cost-effectively scale and meet compliance and data residency requirements. This announcement is fresh in my mind because of conversations I’ve had recently with our customers about the <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/mp/networking/">AWS networking services and solutions in AWS Marketplace</a> that they leverage to connect their corporate network to their virtual private network on the AWS Cloud.</p> <p>Customers typically deploy this architecture with AWS in order to support one or a combination of business needs:</p> <ul> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">Migrate applications to the AWS Cloud over time</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">Quickly and cost-effectively scale their network for branch office and remote connectivity, improving end user experience while migrating applications to the AWS Cloud</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">Ensure compliance and data residency requirements are met</li> </ul> <p>Today, I will overview the VPN options available to customers with these business needs, to help simplify their decision-making. With <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/vpc">Amazon VPC</a>, you can configure an AWS managed VPN, use private circuit connectivity with <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/directconnect/">AWS Direct Connect</a>, and enable third-party networking software on your VPC for VPN connectivity. You may also choose a client-to-site VPN that allows users to directly access AWS from their desktop or mobile devices.</p> <p>Steve Morad’s 2014 whitepaper<em>, </em><a href="http://media.amazonwebservices.com/AWS_Amazon_VPC_Connectivity_Options.pdf"><em>Amazon Virtual Private Cloud Connectivity Options</em></a>, provides an overview of the remote network-to-Amazon VPC connectivity options. The table below summarizes these insights, followed by considerations for selecting an AWS managed VPN or a user-managed software VPN end-point in your virtual network on AWS. This discussion contains information from Morad’s whitepaper.</p> <table style="border-color: #000000;height: 216px" border="1" width="606"> <tbody> <tr> <td colspan="2" width="608"><strong>User Network–to–Amazon VPC Connectivity Options </strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td width="225"><strong>AWS Managed VPN </strong></td> <td width="383">IPsec VPN connection over the Internet</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="225"><strong>AWS Direct Connect</strong></td> <td width="383">Dedicated network connection over private lines</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="225"><strong>AWS Direct Connect + VPN</strong></td> <td width="383">IPsec VPN connection over private lines</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="225"><strong>AWS VPN CloudHub</strong></td> <td width="383">Connect remote branch offices in a hub-and-spoke model for primary or backup connectivity</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="225"><strong>Software VPN </strong></td> <td width="383">Software appliance-based VPN connection over the Internet</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><strong><u>AWS Managed VPN<br /> </u></strong>This approach enables you to take advantage of an AWS-managed VPN endpoint that includes automated multi–data center redundancy and failover built into the AWS side of the VPN connection. Both dynamic and static routing options are provided to give you flexibility in your routing configuration. Figure 1 illustrates.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-16135" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/01/27/Figure-1-AWS-Managed-VPN-1-1024x831.png" alt="Figure 1 - AWS Managed VPN" width="640" height="519" /></p> <p><strong><br /> </strong></p> <p>AWS managed VPN considerations:</p> <ul> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">Although not shown, the Amazon virtual private gateway represents two distinct VPN endpoints, physically located in separate data centers to increase the availability of your VPN connection.</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">Both dynamic and static routing options are provided to give you flexibility in your routing configuration.</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">Dynamic routing leverages Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) peering to exchange routing information between AWS and these remote endpoints.</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">With dynamic routing, you can also specify routing priorities, policies, and weights (metrics) in your BGP advertisements and influence the path between your network(s) and AWS.</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em">When using dynamic routing, routes advertised via BGP can be propagated into selected routing tables, making it easier to advertise new routes to AWS.</li> </ul> <p><strong><u>Software VPN<br /> </u></strong>This option utilizes a software VPN appliance that runs on a single Amazon EC2 instance connecting to your remote network. This option requires that you manage both sides of your Amazon VPC connectivity, including managing the software appliance, configuration, patches, and upgrades.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;<img class="aligncenter wp-image-16010 size-large" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/01/23/marketplaceimg2-1024x690.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="431" /></strong></p> <p>This option is recommended if you must manage both ends of the VPN connection. Considerations:</p> <ul> <li style="padding-bottom: 0.5em"><strong>Compliance:</strong> You may need to use this approach for compliance and data residency requirements in your hybrid network architecture.

The no-cost as well as commercial availability of distributions makes it an obvious choice in many scenarios. Distributions of Linux now power machines as small as the tiny Raspberry Pi to the largest supercomputers in the world. There is a wide variety of minimal and security hardened distributions, some of them designed for <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=gpu&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">GPU workloads</a>.</p> <p>Even more compelling is the use of Linux in cloud-based infrastructures. Its comparatively lightweight architecture, flexibility, and options for customizing it make Linux ideal as a choice for permanent network infrastructures in the cloud, as well as specialized uses such as temporary high-performance server farms that handle computational loads for scientific research. As a demonstration of their own commitment to the Linux platform, AWS developed and continues to maintain their own version of Linux that is tightly coupled with AWS services.</p> <p>AWS has been a partner to the Linux and Open Source Communities through <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/">AWS Marketplace</a>:</p> <ul> <li>It is a managed software catalog that makes it easy for customers to discover, purchase, and deploy the software and services they need to build solutions and run their businesses.</li> <li>It simplifies software licensing and procurement by enabling customers to accept user agreements, choose pricing options, and automate the deployment of software and associated AWS resources with just a few clicks.</li> <li>It can be searched and filtered to help you select the Linux distribution – independently or in combination with other components – that best suits your business needs.</li> </ul> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Selecting a Linux Distribution for Your Company</strong></span><br /> If you’re new to Linux, the dizzying array of distributions can be overwhelming. Deciding which distribution to use depends on a lot of different factors, and customers tell us that the following considerations are important to them:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Existing investment in Linux, if any.</strong> Is this your first foray into Linux? If so, then you’re in a position to weight all options pretty equally.</li> <li><strong>Existing platforms in use (such as on-premises networks).</strong> Are you adding a cloud infrastructure that must connect to your in-house network? If so, you need to consider which of the Linux distributions has the networking and application connectors you require.</li> <li><strong>Intention to use more than one cloud platform.</strong> Are you already using another cloud provider? Will it need to interconnect with AWS? Your choice of Linux distribution may be affected by what’s available for those connections.</li> <li><strong>Available applications, libraries, and components.</strong> Your choice of Linux distribution should take into consideration future requirements, and ongoing software and technical support.</li> <li><strong>Specialized uses, such as scientific or technical requirements.</strong> Certain applications only run on specific, customized Linux distributions.</li> </ul> <p>By examining your responses to each of these areas, you can narrow the list of possible Linux distributions to suit your business needs.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Linux in AWS Marketplace<br /> </strong></span>AWS Marketplace is a great place to locate and begin using Linux distributions along with the top applications that run on them. You can deploy different versions of the distributions from this online store, and AWS scans the catalog daily for security, if we found an issue we notify you — this increases your speed. Scans are run continuously to identify vulnerabilities. AWS notifies customers of any issues found and works with experts to find work-arounds and updates. In addition to support provided by the sellers, the AWS Forums are a great place to ask questions about using Linux on AWS by setting up a free account on the forum. You can also get further details about Linux on AWS from the AWS Documentation.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Applications from AWS Marketplace Running on Linux</strong></span><br /> Here is a sampling of the featured Linux distributions and applications that run on them, which customers launch from AWS Marketplace.</p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline">CentOS Versions 7, 6.5, and 6</span><br /> </strong>The <u><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=centOS&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">CentOS</a></u> Project is a community-driven, free software effort focused on delivering a robust open source ecosystem. CentOS is derived from the sources of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and it aims to be functionally compatible with RHEL. CentOS Linux is no-cost to use, and free to redistribute. For users, CentOS offers a consistent, manageable platform that suits a wide variety of deployments. For open source communities, it offers a solid, predictable base to build upon, along with extensive resources to build, test, release, and maintain their code. AWS has several CentOS AMIs that you can launch to take advantage of the stability and widespread use of this distribution.</p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline">Debian GNU Linux</span><br /> </strong><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?page=1&amp;searchTerms=debian+&amp;category=2649367011">Debian GNU/Linux</a>, which includes the GNU OS tools and Linux kernel, is a popular and influential Linux distribution. Users have access to repositories containing thousands of software packages ready for installation and use. Debian is known for relatively strict adherence to the philosophies of Unix and free software as well as using collaborative software development and testing processes. It is popular as a web server operating system. Debian officially contains only free software, but non-free software can be downloaded from the Debian repositories and installed. Debian focuses on stability and security, and is used as a base for many other distributions. AWS has AMIs for Debian available for launch immediately.</p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline">Amazon Linux AMI</span><br /> </strong><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=%22amazon+linux%22&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">Amazon Linux</a> is a supported and maintained Linux image provided by AWS. Amazon EC2 Container Service makes it easy to manage Docker containers at scale by providing a centralized service that includes programmatic access to the complete state of the containers and Amazon EC2 instances in the cluster, schedules containers in the proper location, and uses familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, Amazon EBS volumes, and IAM roles. Amazon ECS allows you to make containers a foundational building block for your applications by eliminating the need to run a cluster manager, and by providing programmatic access to the full state of your cluster.</p> <p>Other popular distributions available in AWS Marketplace include <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?page=1&amp;searchTerms=ubuntu&amp;category=2649367011">Ubuntu</a>, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?page=1&amp;searchTerms=suse&amp;category=2649367011">SUSE</a>, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=%22red+hat%22&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">Red Hat</a>, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?page=1&amp;searchTerms=%22oracle+linux%22&amp;category=2649367011">Oracle Linux</a>, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B01M26MMTT">Kali Linux</a> and more.<strong><br /> </strong></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Getting Started with Linux on AWS Marketplace<br /> </strong></span>You can view a list hundreds of Linux offerings by simply selecting the Operating System category from the <strong>Shop All Categories</strong> link on the AWS Marketplace home screen.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/linux_operating_systems_selection_1.png" alt="" width="414" height="314" /></p> <p>From there you can select your preferred distribution and browse the available offerings:</p> <p><img class="aligncenter" src="https://media.amazonwebservices.com/blog/2017/linux_operating_systems_selection_dist_1.png" alt="" width="249" height="359" /></p> <p>Most offerings include the ability to launch using 1-Click, so your Linux server can be up and running in minutes.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Flexibility with Pay-As-You-Go Pricing</strong></span><br /> You pay Amazon EC2 usage costs plus per hour (or per month or annual) and, if applicable, commercial Linux cost for certain distributions directly through your AWS account.

Here to tell you more about open source software in the marketplace are&nbsp;<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/matt-freeman-5b750125">Matthew Freeman</a> and <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/luisdans">Luis Daniel Soto</a>.</p> <p>– Ana</p> <hr /> <p>According to industry research, enterprise use of <a href="https://www.blackducksoftware.com/2016-future-of-open-source">open source software (OSS) is on the rise</a>. More and more corporate-based developers are asking to use available OSS libraries as part of ongoing development efforts at work. These individuals may be using OSS in their own projects (i.e. evenings and weekends), and naturally want to bring to work the tools and techniques that help them elsewhere.</p> <p>Consequently, development organizations in all sectors are examining the case for using open source software for applications within their own IT infrastructures as well as in the software they sell. In this Overview, we’ll show you why obtaining your open source software through AWS makes sense from a development and fiscal perspective.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Open Source Development Process</strong></span><br /> Because open source software is generally developed in independent communities of participants, acquiring and managing software versions is usually done through online code repositories. With code coming from disparate sources, it can be challenging to get the code libraries and development tools to work well together. But <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/" title="">AWS Marketplace</a> lets you skip this process and directly launch EC2 instances with the OSS you want. AWS Marketplace also has distributions of Linux that you can use as the foundation for your OSS solution.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>Preconfigured Stacks Give You an Advantage</strong></span><br /> While we may take this 1-Click launch ability for granted with commercial software, for OSS, having <em>preconfigured</em> AMIs is a huge advantage. AWS Marketplace gives software companies that produce combinations or “stacks” of the most popular open source software a location from which these stacks can be launched into the AWS cloud. Companies such as <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/seller-profile?id=a05a357b-083b-4613-9992-d3c232c045a1">TurnKey</a> and <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/seller-profile?id=dbe6480c-fd0d-4625-9bd0-44606ed33fa6">Bitnami</a> use their OSS experts to configure and optimize these code stacks so that the software works well together. These companies stay current with new releases of the OSS, and update their stacks accordingly as soon as new versions are available. Some of these companies also offer cloud hosting infrastructures as a paid service to make it even easier to launch and manage cloud-based servers.</p> <p>As an example, one of the most popular combinations of open source software is the <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=LAMP&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">LAMP stack</a>, which consists of a Linux distribution, Apache Web Server, a MySQL database, and the PHP programming library. You can select a generic LAMP stack based on the Linux distribution you prefer, then install your favorite development tools and libraries.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-15821" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/01/13/01-oss-lamp-stack-to-ami1.png" alt="" width="684" height="120" /></p> <p>You would then add to it any adjustments to the underlying software that you need or want to make for your application to run as expected. For example, you may want to change the memory allocations for the application, or change the maximum file upload size in the PHP settings.</p> <p>You could select an OSS application stack that contains the LAMP elements plus a single application such as <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=wordpress&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">WordPress</a>, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B01FUKADJ2">Moodle</a>, or <em><a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search/results?x=0&amp;y=0&amp;searchTerms=joomla&amp;page=1&amp;ref_=nav_search_box">Joomla!&reg;</a></em>. These stacks would be configured by the vendor with optimal settings for that individual application so that it runs smoothly, with sufficient memory and disk allocations based on the application requirements. This is where stack vendors excel in providing added value to the basic software provisioning.</p> <p><em><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-15822" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/01/13/02-oss-joomla-stack-label1.png" alt="" width="668" height="168" /></em></p> <p>You might instead choose a generic LAMP stack because you need to combine multiple applications on a single server that use common components. For example, WordPress has plugins that allow it to interoperate with Moodle directly. Both applications use<a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B014VGCUGK"> Apache Web Server</a>, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/seller-profile?id=be5eed04-c761-4e81-b278-dca2d20b8482">PHP</a>, and <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B007I8JCUG?qid=1484354606034&amp;sr=0-9&amp;ref_=srh_res_product_title">MySQL</a>. You save time by starting with the LAMP stack, and configuring the components individually as needed for WordPress and Moodle to work well together.</p> <p><em><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-15823" src="https://d2908q01vomqb2.cloudfront.net/da4b9237bacccdf19c0760cab7aec4a8359010b0/2017/01/13/03-oss-lamp-stack-multiple-apps1.png" alt="" width="312" height="171" /></em></p> <p>These are just 2 real-world examples of how you could use a preconfigured solution from AWS Marketplace and adapt it to your own needs.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>OSS in AWS Marketplace</strong></span><br /> AWS Marketplace is one of the largest sites for obtaining and deploying OSS tools, applications, and servers.
