Amazon Nimble Studio today supports the ability for administrators to validate their launch profile configurations directly from the console, which can help them enhance the artist’s experience when provisioning a workstation.

Nimble Studio customers can utilize launch profiles to define access to AWS resources and thereby allow artists to connect to managed workstations. As the needs of studios change, administrators may update their AWS resources such as their VPC, storage systems, license servers, and their corresponding launch profiles which can inadvertently result in instance launch failures that prevent artists accessing a workstation. Starting today, administrators can validate launch profile configuration changes on the same workstations an artist uses for tasks directly from the Nimble Studio console, and can see launch profiles marked as “Ready” or “Impaired” based on validation results. The new launch profile validation feature is designed to help administrators reduce failed launches of virtual workstations, thereby reducing the negative impact on artists. 

There is no additional charge to use the launch profile validation feature (but standard Nimble Studio pricing applies to any use of Nimble Studio). To learn more, visit the Nimble Studio documentation page.
