Amazon Web Services (AWS) has added application container and IoT tools to its Marketplace. In doing so, the company is taking steps to increase the availability of third-party software and hardware related to the technologies on its cloud infrastructure platforms, reports Silicon Angle.

Application containers are an important area that Amazon focuses on because they offer benefits to developers. This allows developers to create software apps that can run in isolation on any computing platform, without making any changes to the underlying code.

AWS has now announced the availability of 160 new “trusted” container products that can be easily and quickly deployed on the Amazon Elastic Container Service and Amazon ECS for Kubernetes services. The products include solutions from companies such as Aqua Security Software and CloudBees. These include developer tools, high-performance computing and security.

By offering them through the AWS Marketplace, Amazon makes it easy to set up and deploy these solutions. The costs end up in the monthly AWS accounts.

AWS Private Marketplace

Amazon also adds a new feature called AWS Private Marketplace. The idea is that companies can create a list of approved software that is consistent with their own policies. Employees can then purchase the software when needed. In addition, Amazon is expanding its Amazon Partner Network Program, to make it easier for software companies to validate their products on the cloud infrastructure.

The new AWS IoT Service Delivery destinations are designed to help users identify related software and services that are certified to run on its platform. The AWS Device Qualification Program is a similar destination for providers of IoT devices. Users can assume that everything on this list is authenticated and validated for interoperability with AWS IoT services, such as IoT Core and Amazon FreeRTOS.

Amazon also makes it easier for third parties to validate their hardware with the Device Qualification Program. Previously, companies had to physically send their devices to Amazon, but with a new IoT Device tester tool that can be downloaded, the hardware can also be validated. After approval, each product is added to the Partner Device Catalog.

Finally, Amazon adds a new ContainerCompetency to its Competency Program, where trusted partners who can help customers manage workloads come into contact.
