Stratusphere in the Cloud on Amazon Web Services EC2
I’m super excited to share that our Stratusphere appliance is now supported on EC2 in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. This is exciting for a number of reasons, but overall it’s a great way to get started with Stratusphere for use cases where off-premise hosting is of value. We envision two clear uses—user assessment or onboarding, and validation of machine performance in cloud-based virtual workspaces.
Regardless of the delivery approach, it is critically important to know your user behaviors, application use, PC workload consumption and overall user experience. Stratusphere has been able to assist in these cases for on premise installations, and now can do the same for those who wish to deploy our Stratusphere Appliance in the cloud.
Assessment/Onboarding Projects and Meeting Expected Service Levels
As you may already know, Stratusphere is a solution that supports many different needs throughout the lifecycle of the user’s workspace. It is the assessment and design support solution for building a virtual infrastructure (think VDI or published application platforms); it is worth highlighting that this step would typically also include Workspaces tier determination. In the case of cloud-based workloads it is critical to ensure you provision users in the proper service tier—overprovisioning means you are paying for cloud workspace resources you may not need. And under provisioning means a user will always be resource constrained.
