Work from home or just about anywhere with a cloud-based Windows desktop using most any device and an Internet connection. For a limited time, Amazon is making several of their AWS services free in light of the recent “work from home” initiative kicked off by the COVID19 pandemic. Workspaces is just one of many available services and it provides a virtual desktop with limitless mobility, stringent security and bidirectional month to month scalability at a very reasonable price (charges apply after AWS resumes billing for this and other services).
When the news of a pandemic broke many scrambled to shift gears looking at their best alternatives for staying connected to the office, their line-of-business applications and most importantly, their mission critical data while at home. For some, the shift was quick and painless. For others, the gears began to grind and business as usual came to a scratching halt. We know. We fielded many of those calls for help.
Whether you’re still holdup at home or you’ve made your way back to some sense of normalcy at the office, there’s no better time than the present to evaluate your mobile compute options. Because AWS Workspaces is relatively simple to setup and maintain I’ve decided to create this BLOG post with step by step instructions. They’re easy to follow, I’ve provided screenshots for each step and again, its free to get started. There’s absolutely nothing to lose here accept about 20 minutes of your day.
