During the current crisis, businesses across the world are putting their continuity plans into action. With large numbers of the work force being forced to stay at home, it is vital to allow employees to work from home.
Amazon WorkSpaces eliminates the need to over-buy desktop and laptop resources by providing on-demand access to cloud desktops that include a range of compute, memory, and storage resources to meet your users’ performance needs.
Central Management and Scaling
Amazon WorkSpaces is available in 13 AWS Regions and provides access to high performance cloud desktops wherever your teams get work done. You can manage a global deployment of many thousands of WorkSpaces from the AWS console. And you can rapidly provision and de-provision desktops as the needs of your workforce change.
Keep your Data Secure
Amazon WorkSpaces is deployed within an Amazon Virtual Private Network (VPC), provide each user with access to persistent, encrypted storage volumes in the AWS Cloud, and integrate with AWS Key Management Service (KMS). No user data is stored on the local device. This helps improve the security of user data and reduces your overall risk surface area.
Scale without Infrastructure
AppStream 2.0 is fully managed on AWS and globally available with pay-as-you-go pricing. You can easily scale your application streaming to any number of users across the globe without acquiring, provisioning, and operating hardware or infrastructure.
Deliver Desktop Application to any Computer
AppStream 2.0 streams your applications from AWS to any computer, including Chromebooks, Macs, and PCs.
Integrate with your IT
AppStream 2.0 connects to your Active Directory, network, cloud storage, and file shares. Users access applications using their existing credentials and your existing security policies manage access. Extensive APIs integrate AppStream 2.0 with your IT solutions.
Provide a Fluid and Responsive User Experience
Each user’s applications are highly responsive because they run on VMs optimized for their use cases.
Secure Application and Data
Applications and data are not stored on users’ computers. Your applications are streamed as encrypted pixels and access data secured within your network.
Centrally Manage Applications
Each user accesses the same version of your applications. You centrally manage your applications on AppStream 2.0 and can stop managing installations and updates on each user’s computer.
