Amazon's data-flow PaaS: AppStream and Kinesis

This definition is part of our Essential Guide: Explore new AWS offerings for developers and enterprises alike
Contributor(s): Anne Stuart

Amazon WorkSpaces is the Amazon Web Services (AWS) desktop as a service (DaaS).

Amazon WorkSpaces lets companies centrally manage user desktops at lower costs than those of traditional on-premises systems. The service provisions desktops so that all stored applications, documents and other information can be accessed from user mobile devices. That capability allows users to move seamlessly between smoothly between their primary computers and multiple other devices. The service also helps organizations better manage the growing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement by storing data in the cloud rather than on individual devices..

Amazon WorkSpaces service bundles vary in price depending on computing power, storage space and software options. All are available on Amazon's standard "pay-as-you-go" billing structure.
