Amazon WorkSpaces Update – Hourly Usage and Expanded Root Volume
In my recent post, I Love My Amazon WorkSpace, I shared the story of how I became a full-time user and big fan of Amazon WorkSpaces. Since writing the post I have heard similar sentiments from several other AWS customers.
Today I would like to tell you about some new and recent developments that will make WorkSpaces more economical, more flexible, and more useful:
- Hourly WorkSpaces – You can now pay for your WorkSpace by the hour.
- Expanded Root Volume – Newly launched WorkSpaces now have an 80 GB root volume.
Let’s take a closer look at these new features.
If you only need part-time access to your WorkSpace, you (or your organization, to be more precise) will benefit from this feature. In addition to the existing monthly billing, you can now use and pay for a WorkSpace on an hourly basis, allowing you to save money on your AWS bill. If you are a part-time employee, a road warrior, share your job with another part-timer, or work on multiple short-term projects, this feature is for you. It is also a great fit for corporate training, education, and remote administration.
