Zoom has announced that it is joining the AWS Partner Network for Public Sector Partners and that Zoom and Zoom for Government are now available on the AWS Marketplace for federal, state and local government customers.
According to Zoom, the new listing allows organizations to either select the commercial Zoom platform or the FedRAMP-authorized Zoom for Government platform, which is hosted in the U.S.-based AWS GovCloud infrastructure and U.S.-based collocated data centers.
In addition, Zoom Meetings and Chat, Zoom Rooms, and Zoom Video Webinars will all be available for purchase — helping AWS Marketplace users easily access Zoom solutions and streamline the renewal process for existing Zoom customers, the company says.
Sandy Carter, vice president of worldwide public sector partners and programs at AWS, said in a statement that two AWS partners, Carahsoft and Tackle, collaborated with AWS Marketplace to accelerate the listing by leveraging AWS Marketplace automation.
This helped pave “the way for Zoom to seamlessly serve federal agencies and state and local governments with secure, modern collaboration tools,” Carter said.
This allows agency IT managers to consolidate their technology and purchase either version of the platform along with many other apps and services, according to Zoom’s statement.
Zoom announced additional details, including the ability for organizations participating in the AWS Cloud Commitment Program to commit to a private pricing program that provides a discount in exchange for a prepaid, annual consumption commitment.
According to Zoom, the company is also participating in the AWS Public Sector Partner Program and AWS ISV Accelerate programs to strengthen solutions with the power of AWS and enable tailored access to customers in specific sectors or purchasing programs.
The company also said Zoom and Zoom for Government are only currently available in the U.S. via the AWS Marketplace with Carahsoft’s support.
