What is Amazon WorkSpaces?

Amazon WorkSpaces is a desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) solution that offers business owners and leaders a secure platform where you can provision numerous OS platforms, from Windows to Linux.

It is also perfect for those who are looking for a cost-effective solution. You can take advantage of the platform's features at an affordable cost instead of opting for the much more expensive on-premise solutions.

Amazon WorkSpaces Benefits


The main benefits of Amazon WorkSpaces are streamlined tasks, cost-effective implementation, secure storage volumes, and global deployment. Here are the details for each of these benefits:

Streamlined Tasks

Amazon WorkSpaces sports a design that helps you automate and remove administrative tasks, as well as monitor and manage all processes involved in a desktop’s lifecycle. From provisioning to recycling and monitoring to scaling, Amazon WorkSpaces has no need for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Cost-Effective Implementation

Because Amazon WorkSpaces is not limited by the inability of VDI to scale, this system is both capable and more importantly, cost-effective. Through cloud technology, Amazon WorkSpaces reduces the cost associated with never-ending desktop and laptop resources. Finally, this system ensures that cutting costs does not sacrifice any of your performance needs, whether in terms of computing or storage resources.

Secure Storage Volumes

Whereas the implementation of the cloud could expose users to security risks, Amazon WorkSpaces addresses this issue by providing a Virtual Private Network (VPC). These storage are then encrypted and integrated with Key Management Service. The result of this combination of technology is that no data can be found in local areas, thereby reducing overall risk.

Global Deployment

Availability globally is crucial, which is it’s important to conduct business management software research. The final benefit of Amazon WorkSpaces is that it is available in 13 regions, which means that you can interact and work with your teams all over the world. As a result, you can easily implement all the changes that your workforce needs.
