4 Reasons Amazon Workspaces Doesn’t Get a Standing Ovation for DaaS


At Workspot, we applaud Amazon Workspaces; after all, how can you not be impressed with the momentum they’ve created around delivering virtual desktops from the cloud? We just can’t give them a standing ovation because the service isn’t enterprise-ready; here’s why.

Workspot was founded by VDI industry veterans who set out to build the right solution for the enterprise that would solve the complexity and cost issues of first generation VDI solutions (VDI 1.0). Our mantra is “We make VDI insanely simple”, and that includes Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) too. It’s what we live and breathe, so customers can finally be successful with virtual apps and desktops. That much we have in common with AWS; I know their intentions are really good. We both want virtual apps and desktops to work for people, not against them, but execution is everything. When we think about the end user computing needs of midmarket and enterprise companies, our differences become apparent – and there are many. But it really comes down to having the right technology in place to meet the needs of people trying to get work done, and organizations with more than 100 employees will always have different flavors of users – each with unique needs. Let’s dive into 4 key areas where the differences between Workspot’s cloud-native, next-generation VDI and DaaS solutions and Amazon Workspaces are most stark.
