Amazon WorkSpaces

Amazon WorkSpaces cloud-based desktop or desktop as a Service (DaaS) provides IT administrators with a cost-effective, scalable way to provide users with a secure high performance computing experience.

Amazon WorkSpaces incorporates PCoIP technology from Teradici. The PCoIP protocol compresses, encrypts, and encodes the users’ WorkSpaces computing experience and transmits pixels only across any standard IP network to users’ PCoIP Zero Clients, laptops, tablets, or mobile devices.

Overview

Easy Provisioning

Provisioning desktops with Amazon WorkSpaces is easy. All you need to do is to choose the WorkSpaces bundle that best meets the needs of your users and the number of WorkSpaces that you would like to launch.

Secure

The Teradici PCoIP remoting protocol is used between users’ devices and their Amazon WorkSpaces desktop to ensure data is secured in the cloud. Enhance your Amazon WorkSpaces deployment with ultra secure PCoIP Zero Clients. These simple, stateless PCoIP Zero Clients contain no CPU, operating system, or local storage—just a chip that decodes the PCoIP transmissions and outputs pixels on the screen. Since no data is transmitted, users connect securely to their virtual environments.

Active Directory Integration

Amazon WorkSpaces lets you integrate with your organization’s Active Directory so that your end users can continue to use their existing credentials to access corporate resources.

Persistent Storage

Amazon WorkSpaces provides each user with access to varying amounts of persistent storage in the AWS cloud, based on the bundle you select.

Anywhere Access

Users can connect to Amazon WorkSpaces from a variety of devices including laptop computers (Mac OS or Windows), iPad, Kindle or Android tablets and PCoIP Zero Clients. PCoIP Zero Clients combined with Amazon WorkSpaces provide a simple, secure, easy to manage cloud desktop solution that delivers an outstanding user experience.

PCoIP Zero Clients come in a variety of form factors and are available from Teradici’s partner ecosystem of over 30 manufacturers. Browse the PCoIP Zero Client Product Finder.
