Desktop and Application Streaming with AWS

Deliver secure access to desktops and applications anywhere, anytime, from any device

Desktop and application streaming services from AWS help IT organizations enable a modern, flexible, global workforce to help users be productive from anywhere, using any supported device. Amazon Desktop and Application Streaming services do this by providing centralized, secure, and controlled delivery of desktops and applications at the global scale of AWS. You can integrate these services with your existing tools for directory, authentication, and management, which helps you simplify desktop and application operations. Because you can provide dedicated capacity, no over-subscriptions, and locate resources close to your users, they get a responsive, fluid, high performance experience, on the device of their choice. With these capabilities, you can move your desktops and applications to AWS for enhanced security, low cost pay-as-you-go pricing, on-demand scaling, and global availability.

How to Meet Modern Desktop and Application Delivery Challenges


Deploy Desktops and Apps Globally

Increase the productivity of your workforce by providing access to applications and data close to your end users wherever they are in the world with capacity that easily scales up and down.

Simplify Desktop and App Delivery

Deliver desktops and applications to your users without the complex deployment and management overhead of desktop inventory, hardware refresh cycles, application delivery, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Deliver a Great User Experience

Delight your users with access to the applications and data they need with a refreshing, responsive desktop and application experience.

Centralize Management

Deploy desktop and applications to your global workforce from the AWS management console while integrating with your existing directory, user access, and security controls.

Reduce Costs

Eliminate the high capital expenses and on-going maintenance costs associated with desktop management, software versioning and legacy VDI and application streaming services.

Improve Security and Control

Store user data securely in an encrypted format on AWS rather than on local devices to reduce the risk of data leakage. Stream applications and data in an encrypted format to users.
