AWS Service Ready-olBefore making a purchasing decision, Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers tell us they want to know if a tool or application will integrate with AWS services running in their cloud environment.

To meet this need for customers, the AWS Partner Network (APN) is excited to introduce AWS Service Ready. This program identifies and validates products from APN Technology Partners that integrate with specific AWS services, and recommends these products to customers.

Through AWS Service Ready, participating APN Technology Partners can demonstrate to customers through website listings on AWS service pages and AWS Partner Solutions Finder that their products have been validated by AWS Solutions Architects (SAs) for high availability and proper architecture.

At launch, AWS Service Ready designations are available for AWS PrivateLink and Amazon Redshift. We are also opening AWS Service Ready applications for AWS Lambda and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS).

If you’re interested in applying, please review the prerequisites and Validation Checklists at the bottom of this post.
