AppStream deploys applications on the AWS cloud infrastructure and streams communications between the applications and user devices. Developers can choose to deploy the entire application or only parts of it on the AWS infrastructure.

Because the resource-intensive components of the application exist on the cloud infrastructure, the associated client app can be lightweight. That capacity means that the applications are enabled for devices with GPU, CPU, memory or storage constraints that might otherwise make them impossible to run.
Other benefits include the ability to update for all clients by making changes to the cloud-based application and the increased security inherent in keeping the actual software off potentially vulnerable end user systems.
