Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

For our use case, we found Amazon WorkSpaces well suited to remote work and other "work from home" and "work on the road" situations where the end user did not need to consume HD media (notably 4K) and did not need to produce any multimedia (audio, video, etc), but rather needed to perform more typical tasks such as web-browsing our corporate intranet and internal online apps, accessing files and using them through office productivity suites (Office - both online and desktop, and LibreOffice are under testing), etc.

Support Rating

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI) 9.0
Based on 1 answer
AWS support in general is pretty good, and WorkSpaces is no exception. We haven't had too much need for support but on the occasion we have, they've been quick to respond and helpful. Our issues have been resolved rapidly.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

We haven't finished our selection process yet, but are leaning towards Amazon due to the ability to host in Amazon's datacenter rather than our own (this aligns with our current strategem of pursuing a web/cloud-first philosophy). While Citrix definitely does better with media, being the inventor of thin protocols and all, Amazon's offering meets the needs for business consumers quite well.

Return on Investment

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

  • Having a linux VM seems positive due to the security of the OS
  • The Linux OS version sometimes is basic and requires extra apps to be installed
