AWS customers can now directly access more than 150 free and paid desktop apps using a new integrated AWS Marketplace experience. AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps enables customers to discover and subscribe to Microsoft Windows-based applications using the familiar AWS Marketplace website, without having to first log in to the Amazon WorkSpaces console.

Featuring popular titles including Microsoft Office, Eclipse IDE, Corel PaintShop Pro, and Trend Micro Worry Free Business Security, AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps offers software as a monthly subscription for use with Amazon WorkSpaces. Customers can search for apps by name or keyword, or browse across categories such as Business Intelligence, Productivity and Collaboration, and Application Development. Once subscribed, administrators can assign the virtualized apps to users through Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager. Customers can also see and manage all their existing AWS Marketplace AMI, SaaS and Desktop subscriptions on the redesigned Your Software page.
