Amazon WorkSpaces is now available in the Asia Pacific (Seoul) region, increasing the number of AWS Regions where WorkSpaces is available to ten. This expansion into a new AWS Region allows you to provision WorkSpaces closer to your users and data. And you can better meet data sovereignty requirements without the cost and complexity of building on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). You can quickly add or remove WorkSpaces to meet the need of your dynamic workforce and still provide a more responsive experience to end users.
WorkSpaces is a fully managed, secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution which runs on AWS. With WorkSpaces, you can provision virtual, cloud-based 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 WorkSpaces you launch, which helps you save money when compared to traditional desktops and on-premises VDI solutions.
For a list of regions where WorkSpaces is available, see the AWS Region Table.
First time WorkSpaces customers can try the service for two calendar months at no cost, using the WorkSpaces Free Tier offering. To get started, follow the Quick Setup Guide.
