AWS Workspaces

Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed, secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution.

You can use Amazon WorkSpaces to provision either Windows or Linux desktops in just a few minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to workers across the globe.

You can pay either monthly or hourly, just for the WorkSpaces you launch, which helps you save money when compared to traditional desktops and on-premises VDI solutions.

Amazon WorkSpaces helps you eliminate the complexity in managing hardware inventory, OS versions and patches, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which helps simplify your desktop delivery strategy.

With Amazon WorkSpaces, your users get a fast, responsive desktop of their choice that they can access anywhere, anytime, from any supported device.

Amazon AppStream 2.0

Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed non-persistent application and desktop streaming service.

You centrally manage your desktop applications on AppStream 2.0 and securely deliver them to any computer.

You can easily scale to any number of users across the globe without acquiring, provisioning, and operating hardware or infrastructure. AppStream 2.0 is built on AWS, so you benefit from a data center and network architecture designed for the most security-sensitive organizations.

Each end user has a fluid and responsive experience because your applications run on virtual machines optimized for specific use cases and each streaming sessions automatically adjust to network conditions.
