Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI) is easy to set up from both an IT perspective and a user perspective. Being a cloud-based virtual desktop, you have all your data, programs. and workflows accessible from anywhere with a simple download and sign-in. IT management is just as easy. Security, network, permissions, they're all easy to control from Amazon WorkSpaces.

HVE-VDI Appliance

HVE-VDI is well suited in just about any environment were desktops and servers need to be managed. Schools, Government institutions, Banks, Churches etc. If you are needing to run virtual desktops and just not sure on how to do so. HVE inc is for sure the company that you need.

Cons

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

  • At the moment, I have no complaints about this service. I've used other VM software for years, and this is by far the simplest and easiest I've tried.

  • Maybe price. They do a really good job in their pricing... But sometimes it is still little about the price range for some small schools.
  • Choosing vendors. In my area, they have partnered with a small tech company that does not have a great track record. To be able to choose who I can purchase from would be great. But, they have worked with me to help with this.
  • Maybe easier to get onsite support. Most of the time a remote connection is how support works. To get on site is a little tough. But again, HVE has always come through. I'm just having to be very picky.

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)

Amazon WorkSpaces has been a simpler experience for me. I've used multiple versions of VMware (hosted and installed) and each has their positives and negatives. Amazon WorkSpaces just works. I've never had performance issues, persistence issues, or really any issues with it.

  • They have made us one of the leading schools in our area for sure.
  • We were able to role out Texas Online State Testing with little to no problems. THIS IS HUGE!!
  • Less downtime... Their server solutions are one of the most stable in the business. I rarely ever have server issues. When you do, you can be back up and be going in Minutes.
