Amazon WorkSpaces is a fully-managed desktop computing service in the cloud. Amazon WorkSpaces allows you to easily provision cloud-based desktops that allow end-users to access the documents, applications and resources they need with the device of their choice, including laptops, iPad, Kindle Fire, or Android tablets. It’s easy to provision WorkSpaces for any number of users with a few clicks in the AWS management console and WorkSpaces can join your existing Active Directory domain so that users can continue to use their corporate credentials to access resources. This session will provide an overview of the key features and benefits of Amazon WorkSpaces, including a live demonstration.
