End User Computing on AWS

Cloud native desktop and application virtualization

AWS End User Computing (EUC) services provide secure access to the applications and desktops the workforce needs to get their job done. With AWS EUC services, workers can be productive from any supported device while improving IT agility and organizational security. You can scale up or scale down resources on demand, providing your teams with the resources they need, all without deploying and operating infrastructure.

Increase Security

At AWS everything we do starts with security, and our EUC services are built on the AWS Cloud. Built to meet the requirements of our most security conscious organizations, EUC services are deployed within an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to provide secure connections within the AWS network without going through the public internet. No user data is stored on the local device. This helps improve the security of user data and reduces your overall risk surface area.

Increase Agility

Being ready to change where and how your workforce gets the job done is more important than ever. AWS End User Computing services are fully managed, so you can scale up and down in minutes as your needs change. AWS End User Computing services run in AWS Regions and AWS Availability Zones around the globe, so your end users can get the job done anywhere, with a rich and reliable user experience.

Increase Reliability

End users can only be productive when they can access their applications. Amazon End User Computing Services are built on the AWS Cloud and our global network of AWS Regions and AWS Availability Zones, and run on AWS EC2 instances with built-in auto scale load balancing. We take on the undifferentiated work of keeping infrastructure up and running and deliver a 99.9% uptime SLA.

Optimize Cost

AWS EUC Services help you eliminate infrastructure and management costs for the underlying VDI infrastructure. You can add and remove users on-demand, and pay only for what you use, when you use it. You no longer need to overbuy hardware and licenses for peak user capacity.

Use cases

Remote Workforce

Organizations increasingly need options that enable employees to work from any location while remaining secure and productive. AWS EUC services help companies onboard new employees remotely, and enable access to their desktops and applications, from anywhere, while helping to increase security by keeping corporate IP off of local devices.

Contingent Workforce

Many organizations are turning to contingent workers such as contractors and temporary staff to increase agility, save money, and capitalize on opportunities to grow. AWS EUC services enable organizations to onboard and support this workforce without the burden of buying, shipping, and managing additional devices. When contingent contracts are over, it is just as easy to scale back. Additionally, with AWS EUC services, you can improve security by ensuring sensitive corporate information is never at rest on the contingent worker's device.

Contact Center Agents

Historically, contact center agents were required to be physically in the contact center office tethered to a phone at their desk, but today our customers are using Amazon WorkSpaces and Amazon AppStream 2.0 to enable their virtual contact agents to access cloud desktops and applications. With WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0, agents get reliable access to the applications they need no matter where they work, and we help organizations can improve security by ensuring sensitive corporate information is never at rest on the contact center agent’s device.

Online Trials, Demos, Training

With AWS End User Computing services, you can provide software trials on demand with no local installs or special hardware required. You can enable your sales team to deliver sales demos for your software from any device. Similarly, you can deliver training and certification workshops for your software with no physical lab or class room.

Workforce Continuity

Organizations increasingly need options that enable employees to work from any location while remaining secure and productive. We provide a set of solutions built on top of the AWS Cloud to quickly, securely, and cost-effectively enable remote work and ensure workforce continuity.

Remote Students and Labs

Amazon WorkSpaces provides a full, persistent desktop that students can use throughout their education while Amazon AppStream 2.0 lets course instructors quickly deliver specific applications for the unique needs for their class. You can easily build the learning environment your students need and ensure students have what they need for your class from day one.

We save millions of dollars for every subsidiary we onboard, because Amazon WorkSpaces can be deployed in many different regions and the solution circumvents the need for physical logistics like shipping hardware and the buildout of network connections.”
