Amazon WorkSpaces is now available in the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) region, increasing the number of AWS Regions in which WorkSpaces is available to 14. This expansion into a new AWS Region allows you to provision WorkSpaces closer to your users and data, providing a more responsive experience. Additionally, you can better meet data sovereignty requirements without the cost and complexity of building on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). For companies that provide services such as customer support, development, or back office services like accounting or IT support, using Amazon WorkSpaces in Asia Pacific (Mumbai) can enable a more reliable way of giving users a persistent desktop while helping you to reduce the risk of data leakage, with the closest possible AWS Region.

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 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 VDI solutions.
