It’s no surprise that as technology advances, businesses of all shapes and sizes are increasingly becoming digital. From the shift to physical stores to e-commerce to remote work becoming more efficient with project management softwares, many workers prefer to stay connected remotely instead of having to leave the house. As the entire world becomes more connected, many businesses are expanding globally, connecting digitally over multiple time zones.
Sounds like things large corporations would do, right? No, small businesses can benefit from remote working too! In fact, they’ve been catching up. Remote and global working is now easier than ever, requiring fewer resources. In order to do this while meeting security and compliance requirements, a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is a great fit for these needs. However, onsite VDI is usually out of budget for most smaller businesses, since they require quite a handful of upfront investments and other costs for backend management.
You can download a short info sheet on Amazon WorkSpaces — our solution to this issue. As you can see, WorkSpaces provides a virtual desktop that can accommodate an unlimited amount of users. It has the advantages of easy, quick scalability and low-cost computing resources, and is platform-agnostic. Its pay-as-you-go model, allowing monthly or hourly billing, is ideal for any businesses that are turned off by large upfront costs. Now you don’t need to worry you won’t be using your money’s worth.
A common characteristic of small businesses are employees who wear many hats. WorkSpaces configuration is flexible, making it easy to keep up with changing employee roles and expectations. WorkSpaces allows you to customize each employee’s interface, controlling what they can install or modify.
Data breaches can be painful, complicated, and expensive to deal with. If you don’t have a sturdy defense team on hand, you’ll want to protect your data tightly without spending too much. Your data is encrypted with the same enterprise-level security that the big corporations have. So don’t worry about a teammate logging in from a random coffee shop that barely knows how to use Wifi. Since there’s also less hardware inventory to take care of, that’s just another weight taken off you.
AWS completely manages your servers, allowing you to go serverless. This will take off a load off your IT staff. If you don’t have the time or resources to manage an IT team, this can save you a lot of work. Multi-Factor authentication takes some security concerns off your mind as well.
Let’s summarize why small businesses can benefit from Amazon WorkSpaces:
