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.

Nerdio

Nerdio manages our servers - file and exchange, and it has been the perfect solution for our office, allowing our users access from any desktop or laptop, no matter the location. As many of us work after hours, we always have access to our files/data... and works well for us whether we're on meetings or need information. Can't imagine going back and not having the ability to work remotely.

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.

  • Default printers! If you work form home and it will switch up your printers. Even if you don't work from home it will switch it sometimes.
  • Disk space seems a little expensive too :(

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.

We moved to this solution when there was only a limited number of vendors offering this type of work environment... and after talking to colleagues who initially selected other vendors, they were happy to make the switch to AdarIT/Nerdio.
