AWS announces Amazon WorkSpaces availability in Mumbai.

  • In 2016, Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched the Mumbai cloud area to extend its cloud offerings in India.
  • Mumbai customers can also use WorkSpaces Streaming Protocol (WSP), a new cloud-native streaming protocol that ensures a consistent user experience even over unstable networks.

Amazon WorkSpaces, a wholly managed desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) solution, is now available in the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) area, according to Amazon Web Services.

How AWS WorkSpaces is helpful

Customers may use WorkSpaces to provision virtual, cloud-based Windows and Linux desktops for their staff, allowing them access to documents, software, and services from any compatible computer at any time. Customers will pay for only the Amazon WorkSpaces they launch on a monthly or hourly basis.

“The extension comes as we enter the first anniversary of the covid-19 pandemic’s global travel bans, lockdowns, and work from home (WFH).” “We’ve spent the last year assisting customers around the world in making the transition to WFH,” AWS said in a statement.

Amazon WorkSpaces makes it simple to provide all of the services that temporary, seasonal, or full-time workers need in a stable desktop environment.

Wipro Ltd, for example, has built a custom IT-as-a-service offering called Wipro virtual desk that uses Amazon WorkSpaces to increase work-from-home efficiency for one of its contact centre customers. The customer was able to introduce a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy for its customers, which resulted in a 10x increase in efficiency while lowering the overall total cost of operations.

Though it’s a challenging market, without a doubt, AWS is one of the most popular and becoming a leader for cloud solutions.
