Education pricing is now available for Amazon WorkSpaces. With this release, qualifying education institutions can save up to 14% per month by leveraging license discounts from Microsoft. This equates to a savings of $3.52 per user per month or $0.03 per user per hour if you qualify, based on Microsoft Licensing Terms and Documentation.

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 desktops for your users, providing them access to the documents, applications, and resources they need, anywhere, anytime, from any supported device. Education institutions can use WorkSpaces to deliver critical course software and materials to students on their favorite devices, wherever they are. 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.

Education pricing is available today in all AWS regions where Amazon WorkSpaces is offered.
