AWS Service Ready Program

Validate and promote your products that work with AWS services

What is the AWS Service Ready Program?

The AWS Service Ready Program is designed to validate products built by AWS Partners that work with specific AWS services. These products are technically validated by AWS Partner Solution Architects for their sound architecture and adherence to AWS best practices, and market adoption including customer successes.

Attaining an AWS Service Ready designation helps AWS Partners promote their products globally. Through this AWS validation, you can demonstrate to your customer that your tools or applications help reduce technology risks.
