Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. With Amazon WorkSpaces, you can deploy your corporate desktop environment on the AWS Cloud, providing your users secure, convenient access to the applications, documents, and resources they need, on the device of their choice from almost anywhere in the world. Amazon WorkSpaces integrates with your current IT resources, so you can derive all of the benefits of virtual desktops while continuing to use existing policies and practices. Scaling is simple and quick, and it is built on the trusted AWS Cloud. Amazon WorkSpaces is available in multiple AWS regions worldwide, so you can deploy in a single region, or globally, and scale at your own pace.

Simplify Desktop Delivery
Reduce Costs
Secure Your Data
Continuous Productivity


Today’s workforce is working seasonally, remotely, and moving from one contract to the next. Traditional desktop solutions such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) can’t scale to a dynamic workforce as it requires complicated capacity planning, upfront capital expenditures for hardware and licensing, and months, if not years, to build out infrastructure.

Instead of building and operating your own infrastructure, you can simply deploy desktops on demand with Amazon WorkSpaces, a DaaS solution on AWS. With DaaS, you manage your images and users, while the infrastructure is managed for you. A few clicks scales your desktops up, or down, to users across the globe.


Your Windows desktop and business-critical data is hosted on the AWS Cloud, and never leaves a securely managed environment.


Amazon WorkSpaces requires no upfront investments or long-term commitment. You pay only for what you use, make your IT expenses predictable, and lower your costs.

Globally Available

Amazon WorkSpaces is available in multiple AWS regions. Global access allows you to add users in new regions simply and cost-effectively, and data remains in the region you assign it to for compliance with regulatory requirements.

Fast, Familiar User Experience

Amazon WorkSpaces offers a fluid, highly interactive user experience that adjusts dynamically to network conditions. Your users can access familiar Windows desktops with full fidelity from iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows devices, thin and zero clients, and even select smartphones.

Flexible and Scalable

Easy to Manage
