AWS WorkSpaces

AWS WorkSpaces is a fully managed, secure, VDI that runs in Amazon Cloud (Desktop-as-a-Service), that is a cost-effective solution, broadly accessible from any device. AWS WorkSpaces can be integrated with existing on-premise Active Directory and used as an alternative solution to Citrix or VMware. Other VDI solutions have expensive licensing fees, requiring an entire department dedicated to the setup and on going maintenance or support.
