AWS Thin Clients and AWS Zero Clients; Winning Cloud Computing & Endpoint Device Solutions

As you may or may not already be familiar, Amazon WorkSpaces is a fully-managed, secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution that provides end users access to virtual, cloud-based desktops. Amazon WorkSpaces cloud computing is a great alternative for IT Professionals not yet ready to dive full-force into a backend Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. With it, you can provision virtual, cloud-based desktops, providing access to documents, applications, and resources - anywhere, anytime; from any supported device. There are no long-term contracts or upfront commitments with Amazon Workspaces. The pay-as-you-go pricing means you pay only for what you use. You are charged based on monthly or hourly billing, and number of WorkSpaces. Plus, you can delete at any time.

Because “you’re in the Cloud,” you’ll experience simpler management of desktop computing infrastructure by avoiding the complexity of maintaining, patching, and managing a large physical desktop environment or a complex VDI solution. With “AWS,” each end user is provided with access to storage. When accessing desktops, a remote display protocol is used to compress, encrypt, and encode data. Only images are transmitted and therefore, security is also a big benefit. AWS Thin Clients and AWS Zero Clients make excellent cloud computing and device endpoint options.
