Amazon WorkSpaces is now available in the EU (London) region, increasing the number of AWS Regions WorkSpaces is available to eight. This expansion into a new AWS Region allows you to provision WorkSpaces closer to your users, providing a more responsive experience. Additionally, you can quickly add or remove WorkSpaces to meet changing demand, without the added cost and complexity of on-premises VDI infrastructure.
Amazon WorkSpaces is a fully managed, secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution which runs on AWS. With WorkSpaces, you can provision virtual, cloud-based Microsoft Windows desktops for your users, providing them access to the documents, applications, and resources they need, anywhere, anytime, from any supported device. You can pay either monthly or hourly, just for the Amazon WorkSpaces you launch, which helps you save money when compared to traditional desktops and on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions.
