Cloud Computing with AWS
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers, including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster.
AWS has significantly more services and more features within those services, than any other cloud provider – from infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, and databases – to emerging technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, data lakes and analytics, and Internet of Things. This makes it faster, easier, and more cost effective to move your existing applications to the cloud and build nearly anything you can imagine. AWS also has the deepest functionality within those services. For example, AWS offers the widest variety of databases that are purpose-built for different types of applications so you can choose the right tool for the job to get the best cost and performance.
Largest community of customers and partners
AWS has the largest and most dynamic community, with millions of active customers and tens of thousands of partners globally. Customers across virtually every industry and of every size, including startups, enterprises, and public sector organizations, are running every imaginable use case on AWS.
AWS is architected to be the most flexible and secure cloud computing environment available today. Its core infrastructure is built to satisfy the security requirements for the military, global banks, and other high-sensitivity organisations. This is backed by a deep set of cloud security tools, with 230 security, compliance, and governance services and features. AWS supports 90 security standards and compliance certifications, and all 117 AWS services that store customer data offer the ability to encrypt that data.
Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed, scalable, and secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. It can be used to provision desktops in minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to users globally. Payment is either monthly or hourly, helping to save money when compared to traditional desktops and on-premises VDI solutions. With Amazon WorkSpaces, your users get a fast, responsive desktop of their choice that they can access anywhere, anytime, from any supported device.
Simplify desktop delivery
Amazon WorkSpaces helps you eliminate many administrative tasks associated with managing your desktop lifecycle including provisioning, deploying, maintaining, and recycling desktops. There is less hardware inventory to manage and no need for complex VDI deployments that don’t scale.
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 data secure
Amazon WorkSpaces is deployed within an Amazon Virtual Private Network (VPC), meaning 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 desktops
Amazon WorkSpaces is 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. And you can rapidly provision and de-provision desktops as the needs of your workforce change.
User Profile Management
Proper profile management is one of the key principles of a virtual workspace, allowing mobility of users and the effective use of compute resources across locations and hosting. The FSLogix product suite as part of a Citrix, Windows Virtual Desktop, or Remote Desktop Solution, provides great user experience, speed and simplicity.
