Reliable, flexible, easy to use, and allows me to work from anywhere

What is our primary use case?

I use it as my laptop. It's my virtual machine. I use it for everything I do at work, including using it for managing the systems and the servers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the mobility. I can use it anywhere."
  • "The speed and performance are not always the greatest. It can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend it. Definitely. It's a very flexible solution, scalable, and easy to use. You can use it from any device, whether you have an iPad, or if you have a laptop, a Mac, or if you have Windows. You can use it on every platform that supports Google Chrome. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Easy provisioning that is easy to scale and easy to setup

What is our primary use case?

We are using Amazon WorkSpaces for our everyday office use. For our software development, we use Azure Desktop.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are easy provisioning, an active directory, and mobile access."
  • "If they had a cheaper option for graphics pro, I think that it would be beneficial and I would use it."

What other advice do I have?

If they have custom development or anything custom, they should probably look at other solutions. All of the pricing adds up to be quite a bit. If it is all-inclusive pricing for a single user or for two users then it would be a lot cheaper. I would rate Amazon WorkSpaces an eight out of ten.
