Maximize innovation and agility by building your SaaS solution on AWS

AWS SaaS Factory provides a broad range of business and technical enablement resources for building, migrating, and optimizing software-as-a-service (SaaS) on AWS.

There are many factors that will shape and influence your SaaS design and architecture. The domain you’re in, the business goals of your product, the scope and time to market of your initial offering—these are some of the many considerations that will impact the approach you take for your SaaS product. Ultimately, you’ll need to identify an approach that balances the technical and strategic realities of your business.

While the range of SaaS architecture options is diverse, there are some clear themes that every SaaS architect will need to address when building SaaS solutions on AWS.
