AWS Marketplace, which lists over 2,500 popular software products for sale by over 850 independent software vendors, has announced support for purchasing software products along new pricing dimensions. Until now, customers could only purchase software by the hour, the month or the year. Now, customers can purchase software from select AWS Marketplace vendors that is priced by the users created or provisioned, the hosts monitored or deployed, or the data processed or stored. This is a new level of flexibility for customers and software sellers, and is expected to further increase customer choice by enabling new products to be listed in the AWS Marketplace.

You can now configure Amazon CloudFront to add custom headers, or override the value of existing headers, to requests forwarded to your origin. You can use these headers to help validate that requests made to your origin were sent from CloudFront; you can even configure your origin to only allow requests that contain the custom header values you specify. Additionally, if you use multiple CloudFront distributions with the same origin, you can use custom headers to distinguish origin request made by each different distribution. Finally, custom headers can be used to help determine the right CORS headers returned for your requests. You can configure custom headers via the CloudFront API and the AWS Management Console. There are no additional charges for this feature. For more details on how to set your custom headers, you can read more here.
