Finding and subscribing to container products - AWS Marketplace

Finding and subscribing to container products

Container products are products in AWS Marketplace that can be launched on container images. Container products include any product in AWS Marketplace in which the seller has provided a fulfillment option with a Container image or Helm chart delivery method. For more information about container product delivery methods, see Container product delivery methods.

Many launch environments, also known as supported services, are available for fulfillment options in container products. Launch environments include services such as Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and even your own self-managed infrastructure. For a complete list of available container product launch environments, see Supported services for container products.

Browse container products using the AWS Marketplace website

You can browse container products by using the AWS Marketplace website.

To browse container products using the AWS Marketplace website

  1. Navigate to the AWS Marketplace search page.

  • Pricing Information – Products can be free, Bring Your Own License (BYOL), pay-up-front with contract pricing, or pay-as-you-go with either a fixed monthly or annual price, or an hourly price. For more information about pricing models, see Container product pricing in the AWS Marketplace Seller Guide.

  • Usage Information – Included here are seller-provided fulfillment options with instructions to launch and run the software. Each product must have at least one fulfillment option and can have up to five. Each fulfillment option includes a delivery method and instructions to be followed to launch and run the software.

To subscribe to a product, choose Continue to Subscribe on the product's details page. For more information about subscribing to products, see Subscribing to products.

Subscribing to products

If you want to use a product, you must subscribe to it first. On the subscription page you can view pricing information for paid products and access the end-user license agreement (EULA) for the software.

For a product with container contract pricing, select your contract pricing and choose Create contract, otherwise choose Accept Terms to proceed. This creates a subscription to the product, which provides an entitlement to use the software. It will take a minute or two for the subscription to complete. After you receive an entitlement to a paid product, you will be charged when you start using the software. If you cancel your subscription without terminating all running instances of the software, you will continue to be charged for any software usage. You may also incur infrastructure charges related to using the product. For example, if you create a new Amazon EKS cluster to host the software product, you will be charged for that service.

Container product delivery methods

A product in AWS Marketplace is considered a container product if the seller has provided at least one fulfillment option with either a Container image or Helm chart delivery method.

Container image delivery method

For a fulfillment option with a Container image delivery method, use the seller-provided instructions to launch the product by pulling docker images directly from the AWS Marketplace registry on Amazon Elastic Container Registry. For more information about launching with this delivery method, see Launching with a Container image fulfillment option.

Helm chart delivery method

For a fulfillment option with a Helm chart delivery method, use the seller-provided instructions or deployment template to launch the product by installing a Helm chart using the Helm CLI. You can launch the application on an existing Amazon EKS cluster, or a self-managed cluster on EKS Anywhere, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), or on-premises. For more information about launching with this delivery method, see Launching with a Helm fulfillment option.

Supported services for container products

The following list includes all of the supported services for container products in AWS Marketplace. A supported service is a container service or environment where the product can be launched. A container product must include at least one fulfillment option that includes a delivery method with instructions to launch to one or more of the environments.

Amazon ECS

Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a highly scalable, fast container management service that you can use to run, stop, and manage containers on a cluster. Your containers are defined in a task definition that you use to run individual tasks or tasks within a service. In this context, a service is a configuration that enables you to run and maintain a specified number of tasks simultaneously in a cluster. You can run your tasks and services on a serverless infrastructure that is managed by AWS Fargate. Alternatively, for more control over your infrastructure, you can run your tasks and services on a cluster of Amazon EC2 instances that you manage.

For more information about Amazon ECS, see What is Amazon Elastic Container Service in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.

Amazon EKS

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that you can use to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane or nodes. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

For more information about Amazon EKS, see What is Amazon EKS in the Amazon EKS User Guide.

Self-managed Kubernetes

You can launch container products on self-managed Kubernetes clusters running in EKS Anywhere, Amazon ECS Anywhere, Amazon EC2, or on-premises infrastructure.

Amazon ECS Anywhere is a feature of Amazon ECS that you can use to run and manage container workloads on customer-managed infrastructure. Amazon ECS Anywhere builds upon Amazon ECS to provide a consistent tooling and API experience across your container-based applications.

For more information, see Amazon ECS Anywhere.

EKS Anywhere is a service that you can use to create an Amazon EKS cluster on customer-managed infrastructure. You can deploy EKS Anywhere as a simple, unsupported local environment or as a production-quality environment that can become a supported on-premises Kubernetes platform.

For more information about EKS Anywhere, see the EKS Anywhere documentation.
