Easy provisioning that is easy to scale and easy to setup
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable features are easy provisioning, an active directory, and mobile access."
  • "If they had a cheaper option for graphics pro, I think that it would be beneficial and I would use it."

What is our primary use case?

We are using Amazon WorkSpaces for our everyday office use.

For our software development, we use Azure Desktop.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are easy provisioning, Active Directory, and mobile access.

What needs improvement?

If they had a cheaper option for graphics pro, I think that it would be beneficial and I would use it. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Amazon WorkSpaces for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. We have not had any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable solution. It's easy to scale.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had an Amazon account and from there, we connected to the Amazon WorkSpaces. 

We also use Azure a lot for software development.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The bundle works out to be approximately $20.00 per month.

What other advice do I have?

If they have custom development or anything custom, they should probably look at other solutions. All of the pricing adds up to be quite a bit.

If it is all-inclusive pricing for a single user or for two users then it would be a lot cheaper.

I would rate Amazon WorkSpaces an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
