"Better than VMware View, easier to setup!"

What do you like best?

Easy to setup, created images rather quickly and was able to have an App Catalog online same day. Also setup SSO to applications and process was rather painless.

What do you dislike?

Interface could be made more friendly, perhaps a wizard process to walk through.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Replacing VDI and using for remote application streaming on and off campus.

"AWS 2.0 you get what you pay for"

What do you like best?

Access to applications is managed completely by Amazon making it one less thing that has to be done. It is also very fast and easy to set up while customizing for your company.

What do you dislike?

The biggest thing I don’t like it the cost. The quality you get is bar none, but you certainly do pay for what you are getting. It would be more beneyin larger companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand that the cost is large, but so are the benefits. The support has been impeccable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to send our techs to the customer to get their machine online and give them all of the tools they need. Now each tech is set up the same way amd each customer gets nearly an identical experience.

What Remote Desktop solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Fantastic feature"

What do you like best?

Access to the applications no longer requires setting up streaming services using an SDK, because it is fully managed by Amazon

What do you dislike?

I dislike the price, but that is what you get for a good product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you use apple products, I highly recommend this still, as it is compatible. Even if you own or are a part of a small business, you still can benefit from this and it can be as little as 4.19 a month!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Things are much faster with amazon appstream. I like that I can now stream desktop applications from Amazon Web Services to any device rnning an HTML5 compatible browser.

Have a list of the applications needed and resources required for each application, to correctly size Images.
