Amazon Workspaces

Amazon WorkSpaces is a desktop computing service offered to customers through the cloud. Amazon WorkSpaces desktops are part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) suite of services and enable users to access, store and work with documents, applications and computing resources from any device anywhere and at any time.

Amazon WorkSpaces are fully managed by Amazon and can be accessed by laptop, desktop, or any number of mobile devices, including iPads, Amazon’s Kindle Fire or other Android-based tablets. WorkSpaces users are billed on a pay-as-you-launch model, with monthly fees based on the number and type of WorkSpaces desktops launched.

The benefits of using Amazon WorkSpaces for companies come from potential cost savings, both in terms of up-front hardware infrastructure expenses as well as ongoing maintenance costs for managing and servicing physical desktop computers.
