With the rapid adoption of AWS across industries and various sizes of organization, customers are increasingly asking for partner solutions in areas such as value-added software, established business applications, developer tools, and consulting expertise to help them deploy and manage mission-critical workloads on the AWS cloud.

Similarly, since the beginning of the year, the number of products available in the AWS Marketplace has increased 71%, and hours of usage of AWS marketplace products has increased by more than 700%.

"The growth of the AWS Partner Network and AWS marketplace continues to accelerate as customers actively seek partners with the products and expertise to help them take advantage of the AWS cloud," said Terry Wise, director, Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS speaking to DQ Channels. He continued, "Our partners are critical to helping customers run their applications on AWS, and we will continue to invest in delivering the programs, tools and training to help our partners grow their cloud businesses, differentiate their offerings, and drive success for our joint customers."
