Amazon WorkSpaces Desktop Service offers a new high-powered option

Amazon WorkSpaces Desktop Service offers a new high-powered option

Amazon WorkSpaces virtual cloud desktop service runs on the Amazon Web Services Inc.(AWS) cloud. This new option is for users who require more powerful computing jobs such as data analysts and developers.
Amazon WorkSpaces allows organizations to provide virtualized Microsoft Windows desktops for users. Users can access documents, applications, and other resources from any device, anywhere, at any given time, with any supported device. It competes against Google’s G Suite, and other Desktop-as-a-Service offerings (DaaS), from virtualization specialists.
A new service option was created to meet customer demand for higher-powered WorkSpaces infrastructure. It offers more virtual CPUs (vCPUs), storage, and memory.
AWS spokesperson Jeff Barr stated that today, “Today we are expanding the current set of WorkSpaces packages with a new Power package,” in a blog post. This bundle is made to make analysts, developers, and me smile. It includes four vCPUs and 16 GiB of memory. It also contains 275 GB storage (175 GB on system volume, 100 GB for user volume).
Developers and analysts are the users who asked AWS for more WorkSpaces. Barr stated that they needed a workstation-class machine to perform their high-powered computing tasks.
Barr stated that developers want to use Visual Studio, IntelliJ and Eclipse as IDEs. “Analysts desire to run complex simulations using MatLab, GNU Octave and R, and statistical analysis using Stata.”
There are five WorkSpaces bundles available now: Value, Standard and Performance. The latter has one vGPU and adds video memory. However, it has less regular memory and a smaller SSD root size than the Power bundle. These are the current bundles.

This low latency access will increase productivity and simplify the use of other AWS data analysis tools like Amazon Redshift Spectrum and Amazon QuickSight.
All bundles include a Microsoft Windows 7/Windows 10 desktop and all applications, including Internet Explorer 11, Firefox, and 7-Zip. You can also choose to have different versions of Microsoft Office Professional.
