Amazon WorkSpaces

Secure desktop-as-a-service managed by AWS.

Freedom to Work From Any Device and Any Location

If your organization is looking for a managed and secure Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution, then Amazon WorkSpaces is a must! You can use Amazon WorkSpaces on both Windows and Linux desktops, and in just a few short minutes, can quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to your employees around the globe.

Choose to pay for either an hourly or monthly fee and just for the WorkSpaces you launch. This pricing model helps your bottom line, particularly when you compare it to traditional desktops and on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions.

Amazon WorkSpaces also helps to eliminate the complexities of managing operating system versions and patches, hardware inventory, and VDI. With Amazon WorkSpaces, you get a fast and responsive desktop which can be accessed anytime from anywhere and from any supported device.

Amazon WorkSpaces also helps to eliminate many ongoing administrative tasks associated with desktop lifecycle management, from deployment, maintenance and recycling of desktops. Plus, with less hardware inventory to manage, there is no need for complex virtual desktop infrastructure deployments that don't scale.

Eliminate the need to purchase additional desktop and laptop resources with Amazon WorkSpaces by providing your teams with on-demand access to cloud desktops that meet their performance needs.

Deployed within an Amazon Virtual Private Network (VPC), Amazon WorkSpaces provides each user with access to encrypted storage volumes in the Amazon WorkSpaces Cloud. These volumes integrate with Amazon WorkSpaces Key Management Service (KMS). With user data stored in the users' workspaces in AWS rather than on the local device, the security of user data is improved, reducing the overall surface area risk.

Available in 13 Regions, Amazon WorkSpaces provides access to high-performing cloud desktops wherever your teams are located anywhere in the world, to get the work done. Plus, you can manage a worldwide deployment of many thousands of WorkSpaces from the Amazon WorkSpaces console and can rapidly power up and power down desktops on the fly as the needs of your workforce changes.
