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.

I could have picked more than 8 for this. I like TeamViewer a lot and
it's been a life saver in many moments, either in my work or my personal
life. I live in a different apart of my family and many times I have to
remote into my mother's laptop, many other programs I tried did not
allow me to get full control over my mother's laptop, when TeamViewer
did.

Pros

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

  • Amazon WorkSpaces provides us with total control over our employee/consultant workstations.
  • We can spin up new workstations in minutes.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TeamViewer

  • The platform does not use a lot of system resources both when being used and not being used. This is really good to help not interfere with someone trying to be productive when working on their computer.
  • It is really easy to install from an install standpoint. It doesn't really require much in the way of in-depth configuration to get the platform up and running.
  • It provides timely updates to the platform, whether these be patches, or regular platform updates. Also, updates are pushed down to the desktop platform in an efficient manner, meaning it really doesn't require much on the user's part to be too involved in running these updates.

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.

  • For my/our use, we would be happy to have a less costly version of Team Viewer that would give us remote access only.
  • Two problems that we have experienced have to do with the company itself, and not so much the product: (1) Automatic renewal and they make it (almost) impossible to cancel, unless you contact them at least a month prior to renewal. (2) It is very difficult to reach Customer Service.

As long as I continue to provide remote support for my clients, it's a no brainier. For what I pay out, I probably make it back tenfold in the ability to provide remote support from wherever and whenever. Not to mention the saved gas money for a fix that only takes 5 minutes but it takes you 20 minutes to get there. As my business continues to grow, and I support more and more clients, my need for TeamViewer will only grow.

I have used it for years but I can easily have someone else install it and be using it within minutes. It’s very intuitive and the information I need from a client is obvious to them so it’s easy to get that information from whoever is operating the client machine.

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.

I have not needed to contact TeamViewer support much in regards to the software not performing like it is supposed to. The only reason that we contact support is to get the license keys for our updated software. We always get a response in a very reasonable amount of time with the new license keys included.

I have never used the online training either. I have watched a few informational videos that were helpful when learning how to do a specific procedure within TeamViewer and get the most out of the software by utilizing one of the many features that are available with the software. Again, 5 if for neutral.

Implementation was easy enough that it didn't pose any problems. Training was minimal and the system works right out of the box

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.

TeamViewer is far superior to LogMeIn Pro for file transfers and
remote copy and paste. I believe LogMeIn Pro has the same capabilities, but using
them is awkward and not intuitive. TeamViewer's screen scaling, display quality, and multiple monitor support is far better than LogMeIn Pro and VNC Connect, especially
for large, 4K displays.

Return on Investment

Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

  • Managing VMs is easier than before.
  • AWS pricing is quite competitive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TeamViewer

  • Before TeamViewer went to a subscription model, its initial high cost paid off over time. While the initial investment was high, the return on it paid off over the course of a couple of years.
  • With the subscription-based model, for a small business, the high cost may not be worth with the investment.
  • For a large business, or a business who relies heavily on remote tech support, the high subscription cost may be worth it.
  • Because TeamViewer is subscription based, a business must calculate how much money it will make on remote support vs. how much TeamViewer actually costs.
  • In my personal business, I have moved to a competing platform as a result of TeamViewer's shift to a subscription - the investment was no longer cost-effective.
