SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--fabric, whose mission is to accelerate the Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) of the Internet by ending the pain of re-platforming, today announced that it has teamed up with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) to reinvent the next generation of e-commerce technology. As a new member of the AWS Partner Network, fabric now has access to additional resources from AWS, including dedicated technical assistance that will help fabric architect, scale, and optimize solutions for the cloud and more easily integrate features and products with AWS services.
Additionally, fabric has joined AWS Marketplace, which enables the company to co-market its products to AWS customers. AWS Marketplace will help amplify fabric’s lead-generation activities, extending its reach to other innovative companies that want to leverage the cloud to advance e-commerce in more than 150 countries.
“The collaboration between fabric and AWS represents an amazing meeting of the minds between the company that pioneered online shopping and our startup, providing new, innovative, Amazon-level technology to mid-market and enterprise level retailers and brands,” said Faisal Masud, CEO of fabric. “The biggest beneficiary of this collaboration will be fabric’s customers, who will see their commerce platform run on the best performing and most reliable cloud in the business along with AWS technical expertise. This is a big moment in the evolution of ecommerce.”
In addition to the co-marketing opportunity, the support from AWS will dramatically accelerate product development, helping fabric build more inventive commerce-focused solutions in the cloud.
“fabric’s solutions are at the cutting edge of headless commerce, freeing online retailers from old-fashioned, monolithic approaches to enter a new generation of easy, flexible, API-first driven e-commerce—something we know our online retail customers can greatly benefit from,” said Howard Wright, VP and Global Head of Startups at AWS. “This collaboration will put the full weight of our resources, expertise, and reach to help them scale and bring even more retailers to the twenty-first century.”
With fabric products available through the AWS Marketplace, retailers and brands now have a one-stop shop for virtually all of their compute power, storage, content delivery, and other technical needs. fabric customers also gain access to the AWS Partner Network, consisting of over 100,000 partners with diverse expertise across nearly every industry and use case.
