Armory & AWS Partnership Update
Jun 24, 2020 by Ryan Cartwright
There has been a lot of excitement building in the community between Armory, Spinnaker, and AWS. Most recently, Armory co-hosted Spinnaker Live where we had the chance to hear from a lot of joint Armory & AWS customers along with industry experts. There has been a lot of other exciting activities happening that it’s worth a blog update.
New AWS Partner Page
Armory has recently launched its AWS Partnership Page. AWS and Armory have partnered together to help enterprises access the full breadth of innovation in the cloud. Using Armory’s Enterprise distribution of Spinnaker, customers can replace their complex, brittle paths to production in the data center with a single, codified pipeline that can deploy workloads to AWS, and also support a hybrid cloud strategy.
AWS Marketplace Offerings
AWS Marketplace is a digital catalog with thousands of independent software vendors that makes it easy for customers to find, buy, and deploy software on AWS. Armory Spinnaker can be consumed via an AMI or Container on AWS Marketplace.
- Single-VM Armory Spinnaker Instance via AMI to AWS EC2
- Operator-based Armory Spinnaker installation to AWS EKS
AWS Global Startup Program
The full announcement can also be found on PR Fire.
Last week, Armory announced that we joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) Global Startup Program. The APN Global Startup is a unique “white glove” support and go-to-market (GTM) Program for selected startup APN Partners, so that we can build on our AWS expertise, better serve shared customers, and accelerate our growth. To be selected for the APN Global Startup Program, Armory had to meet rigorous criteria, including a clear, demonstrated product market fit for an innovative enterprise tech product, the backing and recommendation of top-tier venture capital firms, and a strategic commitment to building its AWS and cloud expertise.
The APN Global Startup Program enables qualifying startups to gain product design wins, visibility, exposure, leads, and commercial opportunities made possible with exclusive APN resources and dedicated Startup Partner Development Managers (PDM) with deep AWS knowledge and startup business experience, that guide startups in their growth journey with APN. By becoming an APN Global Startup Partner, Armory will receive benefits ranging from a tailor-made plan for mapping the startup needs and opportunities to a selection of AWS services and APN programs, promotion support to drive visibility and awareness around the startup offering, to resources for helping startups sell and deploy innovative solutions on behalf of AWS shared end-customers.
APN Advanced Technology Partner
Armory has recently achieved its AWS Advanced Technology Partner Tier.
