Amazon WorkSpaces is a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. The solution is fully managed by AWS. Users can choose between Windows or Linux desktops that can be provisioned globally in just a few minutes.

Compared to traditional on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions, clients don't need to worry about procuring, deploying, and managing a sophisticated environment. Amazon WorkSpaces takes care of the hard work and provides a fully managed service.

Workspaces service can be billed either monthly or hourly, just for the WorkSpaces you launch. Hourly model helps you save money compared to traditional desktops and on-premises VDI solutions.

Amazon WorkSpaces enables your company to deliver a fast and responsive desktop to its employees. It can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, from any supported device

What are the benefits of using Amazon Workspaces?

Simplicity

Amazon WorkSpaces eliminates common and time-consuming administrative tasks associated with the management of your desktops, such as provisioning, deploying, maintaining, and recycling.

Your company has less hardware inventory to manage, and there is no need for complex virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments that are hard to scale.

Cost reduction

With Amazon WorkSpaces, you don't need to over-buy expensive desktop and laptop resources; you get on-demand access to cloud desktops that include a range of compute, memory, and storage resources to meet the specific needs of your users.

Security

Amazon WorkSpaces is built on top of Amazon infrastructure and is deployed within an Amazon Virtual Private Network (VPC).

You can provide each user with access to persistent, encrypted storage volumes in the AWS Cloud, and integrate with AWS Key Management Service (KMS).

The security of users' data is also much better because data is never stored on the local device.

Management and scaling

Amazon WorkSpaces is available in 13 AWS Regions; it provides easy access to high-performance cloud desktops wherever your team needs to get work done. We can simply manage a global deployment of hundreds of WorkSpaces using the AWS console. Desktops can be rapidly provisioned or de-provisioned based on the needs of your workforce.

What are the best use cases for Amazon Workspaces?

Secure cloud desktops for remote, mobile, and contract employees

Amazon WorkSpaces can help your company's mobile and remote employees access the applications they need by delivering a cloud desktop accessible anywhere; all your employees need is an internet connection and a device to connect to the service.

Unified and simple cross-platform desktop experience on a range of devices

Amazon WorkSpaces runs on almost any device, such as PC, Mac, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android tablet, Chromebook, and web browsers like Firefox and Chrome. This enables your employees to work from anywhere and any device.

Desktops for software testing and development

Developers and test teams often need access to a secure, high-performance WorkSpace for their work; this usually involves buying expensive over-provisioned physical hardware.

Amazon WorkSpaces can be provisioned to include all the tools your developers need to build applications quickly. The source code is not stored on developers' computers, helping your company ensure the safety of your intellectual property.

Persistent desktops for classroom and lab settings

Amazon WorkSpaces provides a full, persistent desktop experience that students can use throughout their education. The service can be bundled together with Amazon AppStream 2.0, the service that lets course instructors quickly deliver specific applications for the needs of their classes. When used together, your educational institution can quickly build the learning environment that your students need.

Rapid integration during mergers and acquisitions

Companies that go through M&A activity must support quick and effective on-boarding or off-loading the large number of employees with fast, easy, secure access to company applications and data.

This must be done across a diverse set of devices without spending too much money or going through complicated and time-consuming integrations.

Amazon WorkSpaces enables IT teams to quickly provision secure WorkSpaces to keep up with changing organizational structures.

Conclusion

Amazon WorkSpaces changes the way the desktop environment is provided to your employes. It gives more freedom to your employees to access their environment from anywhere, and basically any device that has an internet connection. Your company benefits from superior security and control of your company's data and the reduced costs compared to buying expensive hardware.
