The AWS Solutions team recently updated Amazon Workspaces Cost Optimizer, a solution that analyzes all of your Amazon WorkSpaces usage data and automatically converts the WorkSpace to the most cost-effective billing option (hourly or monthly), depending on your individual usage. This solution also helps you monitor your WorkSpace usage and optimize costs.

The updated solution includes a new feature to delete unused workspaces which will reduce costs for customers by terminating the workspaces which have not been used for a month. Customers can now deploy the solution in Gov cloud to monitor their workspaces. With this release, customers can also provide a list of regions to monitor their workspace loads. The release also generates aggregated reports across the Directories for easier analysis of the workspaces.

Additional AWS Solutions Implementations offerings are available on the AWS Solutions page, where customers can browse common questions by category to find answers in the form of succinct Solution Briefs or comprehensive Solution Implementations, which are AWS-vetted, automated, turnkey reference implementations that address specific business needs.
