Amazon Web services revamps partner program

New Partner Network offers tech and sales support for cloudy companions

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Amazon Web Services' has built a new base camp on its route into the heart of enterprise IT, in the form of a new Partner Network the company says provides “technical information and sales and marketing support they need to accelerate their business on AWS.”

In a blog post announcing the new Network, AWS Technology Evangelist Jinesh Varia says it will be open to “Technology-based partners (including ISVs, SaaS, tools providers, platform providers, and others) and Consulting-based partners (including SIs, agencies, consultancies, MSPs, and others).”

Partnerships will be offered in three tiers, Registered, Standard and Advanced.

The first looks to be a token membership as it involves no cash commitment and assumes no deep involvement with AWS.

Standard and Advanced Partners will need to pay for at least $US1000 of premium support and have a product working on AWS, either in beta for Standard Partners or in production for Advanced members.

The new scheme “ will not be fully activated until later this year”, Varia writes, but he and AWS nonetheless encourages partners to start the process of moving to either Standard or Advanced membership. ®
