AWS Marketplace China now supports AMI-based delivery of third-party software using AWS CloudFormation to streamline software deployment on AWS. Customers can find and subscribe to AMI applications that run across a cluster of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and/or require additional AWS resources such as Auto Scaling groups, Elastic Load Balancers (ELB), or Amazon Relational Database Services (RDS), and easily deploy the third-party software using vendor-defined, pre-vetted AWS CloudFormation templates with just a few clicks. 

With this release, customers can gain a seamless and simplified deployment experience using AWS CloudFormation templates. On the AWS Marketplace website, customers can search for CloudFormation-backed AMI products by choosing “CloudFormation Stack” in the Delivery Method drop-down, and further refine results with other search filters such as vendors and categories. On the Product Detail Page, customers will see a list of the AWS resources required to run the AMI product, along with an estimate of the monthly infrastructure costs. After subscribing to the product and choosing a vendor-defined CloudFormation template, customers will be redirected to AWS CloudFormation console and can quickly deploy single or multiple instances of the AMI, along with other AWS resources. All CloudFormation templates in AWS Marketplace China are pre-vetted and scanned for security and availability issues.
