Overall Satisfaction with Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

Workspaces are used for remotely connecting to our organization's servers and access our virtual machines from anywhere. We use this application widely in our company. It has a simple and clean UI for any user to understand. Especially during work from the home period, it has been our part of daily work life. It runs smoothly without any stutters. It's a great option for accessing virtual machines. It is fast, secure, and reliable.
  • Minimalistic UI
  • Multi factor authentication is enabled for better security
  • Secure and reliable
  • Less vulnerable to virus attacks
  • Has application for every major Operating system
  • Restarting workspaces takes lot of time
  • MFA can be done only via email. Text or dedicated app would be a great choice.
  • Multi factor authentication
  • Simple and clean UI
  • Ability access from any device.
  • Doesn't need VPN
  • Easy to connect to our virtual machines
  • Multi factor authentication has ensured of no unwanted logins
  • Trouble shooting is easy
  • Regular updates for better security and optimized usage.
Cisco AnyConnect is a VPN client and using a VPN can reduce the internet speed. It is not quite reliable as workspaces. Cisco AnyConnect is not at all optimised for linux machines. They suffer a lot from crashing and loss of internet speed. Workspaces works quite well even on linux machines.

It is best suited for work-from-home situations. It doesn't require any VPN to connect. It runs smoothly and without any lags. But when the internet is slow it gets disconnected instantly without intimating the user. It is well designed and completely optimized to run on any operating system. However, macOS client suffers while closing the application. Updates are regular.
