Amazon DevPay is out (in Beta)!
DevPay basically lets you layer your own service offerings on top of Amazon’s and get compensated for doing so. I can’t tell you why we’re so excited about this one, just yet, but we have some neat ideas we’re playing with that I hope I can talk about soon. Meanwhile, if you’re a developer wanting to re-sell Amazon’s services with your own special sauce mixed in, now’s your chance. 🙂
This service is particularly interesting, to me, because it doesn’t stand on its own. Most of the other services work great together, but you can easily use them independently to do interesting things. I’ve been expecting layers of services to start forming where some of the core components are pre-requisite building blocks (say a CDN on top of S3 or a Load Balancing API on top of EC2), and I think DevPay is the first of these. Can’t wait to see what kind of neat businesses come out of this.
