AWS End User Computing

Give users the freedom to work anywhere, anytime, from any device

Modern organizations expect their teams to get work done anywhere, at any time. Teams expect to collaborate seamlessly across geographic and organizational boundaries. And workers expect to access the applications and data they need to be productive from wherever they are, using their favorite device. IT is under more pressure than ever to keep data secure, control costs, and empower workers to be more productive. But traditional on-premises tools for End User Computing, such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), application streaming, and mobile access management software, are hard to secure, lack flexibility and scale, and don’t meet the expectations of the modern workforce.

AWS End User Computing provide secure, managed services for cloud desktops, application streaming, mobile access to internal company websites and web apps, and file storage. When you deploy End User Computing services on AWS, you can maintain security over your data, improve user productivity, simplify IT operations, and enable builders to be more innovative.

How to Meet Modern Desktop and Application Delivery Challenges

Benefits

Improve Security and Control

Use fine grained controls to manage who can access applications, data, and content. These services display an encrypted, ephemeral representation of applications and content on your user’s local device. By keeping company data off your workers’ devices, you can better protect sensitive information.

Improve User Productivity

Let your users access applications, data, and content from anywhere, anytime, using their favorite device. Delight your users with instant access to the applications and content they need with a fluid, responsive experience. Users can start working in a powerful cloud desktop, then switch to secure mobile access while on the go, and access desktop apps via a browser, all while storing data in a secure environment.

Simplify IT Operations

Deploy managed services for cloud desktops, application streaming, secure mobile access, and cloud storage that eliminate the need for complex on-premises VDI infrastructure, device management apps or disconnected storage. Integrate these services with your existing tools for user authentication, security, and encryption. Automate your management processes with API-level integration into service management, self-service, and devops tools.

Scale with Your Workforce

Easily onboard workers, including temps and contractors, to meet changing business needs. Add and remove capacity or rapidly provision powerful graphics capabilities to help ensure your teams have the tools they need to get the job done. Provide applications and data anywhere in the world to support your globally expanding business.

Reduce Costs

Eliminate the high capital expenses and on-going maintenance costs associated with desktop management, mobile access solutions, and legacy VDI and application streaming services. Eliminate the need to over-buy or over-provision capacity to meet peak demand with pay as you go pricing.

Build on AWS

Build innovative solutions for your teams and customers with extensible APIs, SDKs, and programmable access to End User Computing services. Turn your existing software into SaaS offerings without rewriting your applications.
