Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed application streaming service that provides access to desktop applications from anywhere and any device. This access provides a responsive user experience that is indistinguishable from natively installed applications.

AppStream 2.0 has the following capabilities:

  • Manages the AWS resources required to host and run your applications.
  • Scales automatically.
  • Provides access to your users on demand.

With AppStream 2.0, you can:

  • Add your existing desktop applications to AWS.
  • Enable your users to instantly stream them.

Windows users can use the AppStream 2.0 client or an HTML5-capable web browser for application streaming which results in a consistently high performance and secure experience. On Windows:

  • You can maintain a single version of each of your applications, which makes application management easier.
  • Your users always access the latest versions of their applications.
  • Your applications run on AWS compute resources where the data is never stored on users' devices.

Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
