What is Amazon AppStream 2.0?
Appstream 2.0 is Amazon Web Services’ latest fully managed service that allows anyone to securely stream windows applications directly to a compatible HTML5 web browser. Previously only available in limited regions world-wide, it’s now available for deployment in Sydney.
What problems does AppStream solve?
You’re a software vendor:
- You’re a software vendor wanting to break into the Software-as-a-Service landscape, but have a heavy GUI client based application. SaaS apps where primary delivery is by Windows Forms or some other technology that is not able to be delivered via web browser. Reduce time to market rather than re-writing your software to be web browser friendly.
- Simplify environment management to just your application rather than the complete operating environment.
- Looking for an additional revenue stream hosting your application, instead of having customers install in their own environments.
