Users today want access to their applications from anywhere, using their preferred device.

To support this, organizations need to maintain multiple versions of their desktop applications, and take additional measures to secure applications and data. While browser-based applications solve device compatibility and security problems for IT, the reality is that organizations still have many traditional desktop applications that need to be supported. Organizations face a choice: either rewrite their applications to run natively in browsers, which is time consuming and expensive, or continue to maintain and support a complex catalog of desktop applications.

Introducing Amazon AppStream 2.0:

Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed, secure application streaming service that allows you to stream desktop applications from AWS to any device running a web browser, without rewriting them. Amazon AppStream 2.0 provides users instant-on access to the applications they need, and a responsive, fluid user experience on the device of their choice.

Amazon AppStream 2.0 gives you the benefits of native browser applications without the need to rewrite them. With Amazon AppStream 2.0, you can easily import your existing desktop applications to AWS and instantly start streaming them to any compatible browser. You can maintain a single version of each of your apps, which makes application management easier. Your users always access the latest versions of their applications. Your applications run on AWS compute resources, and data is never stored on users’ devices, which means they always get a high-performance, secure experience.

Key Benefits:

  • Run Desktop Applications on Any Device:

    Have your desktop applications run securely. You can import your applications without rewriting them, maintain a single version for all your users, and provide easy access to your users from anywhere.

  • Instant-On Access:

    Amazon AppStream 2.0 provides users instant-on access to their desktop applications in a web browser on the desktop device of their choice. There are no delays, no large files to download, and no time-consuming installations. Users get a responsive, fluid experience that is indistinguishable from natively installed apps.

  • Secure Applications and Data:

    With Amazon AppStream 2.0, applications and data remain on AWS – only encrypted pixels are streamed to end users. Applications run on a streaming instance dedicated to each user so that compute resources are not shared. Essentially, it allows you to isolate your applications and deliver them in a secure way

  • Easily Integrates with your IT Environment:

    Amazon AppStream 2.0 can integrate with your existing AWS services, and your on-premises environments. By running applications inside your VPCs, your users can access data and other resources that you’re running on AWS, reducing the movement of data between AWS and your location and providing a faster user experience.

  • Fully Managed Service:

    With Amazon AppStream 2.0, you don’t need to plan, deploy, manage, or upgrade any application streaming infrastructure.

  • Consistent, Scalable Performance:

    Amazon AppStream 2.0 runs on AWS with access to compute capabilities not available on local devices, which means that your applications run with consistently high performance. You can instantly scale locally and globally, and ensure that your users always get a low-latency experience.
