Amazon CTO Werner Vogels took the stage at the company’s AWS Summit Wednesday to announce a smorgasbord of new features for Amazon Web Services.
The functionality included new billing for software-as-a-service applications, a new continuous integration tool, and enhancements to the company’s database services. Here's the rundown of what was announced:
SaaS Contracts in AWS Marketplace
SaaS Contracts give companies the ability to pay for subscription software through the AWS Marketplace on a one-, two- or three-year basis. Customers are billed for the subscriptions through their monthly AWS bill, rather than on a separate invoice.
"SaaS has become a critical approach for customers consuming new software because it's native to cloud," Vogels said.
