Create or point to an existing AWS account - AWS Elemental Appliances and Software Quote Confirmation

Create or point to an existing AWS account

To use the Quote Confirmation service, you need an active Amazon Web Services (AWS) account. This account is separate from yourAWS Elemental User Community account.

If you already have an active AWS account, you can use that for Quote Confirmation, or create a new one. Each quote that we issue to you is associated with only one AWS account. If you receive quotes in the future, they can be associated to a different account than your previous quotes.

When you create an AWS account, you must accept the AWS Customer Agreement. This agreement is for the AWS console. It's separate from the AWS Elemental Appliances and Software Agreement, which governs your AWS Elemental purchases. The AWS console enables us to provide you a streamlined buying experience on the same platform as the cloud-based AWS services.
