  • Scalable: you can enable workers to work from any timezone with access to a fast, centrally managed desktop experience that doesn’t require a VPN

What is Amazon WorkSpaces?

Amazon WorkSpaces is the VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) solution available from Amazon Web Services (AWS). As 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.


Simplify Desktop Delivery
Amazon WorkSpaces helps eliminate many administrative tasks associated with managing the desktop lifecycle including provisioning, deploying, maintaining, and recycling desktops.
Reduced Costs
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.
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.
Centrally Manage and Scale
Amazon WorkSpaces and Amazon Virtual Desktop are 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.
