AWS End User Computing Competency

Spin up virtual desktops, enterprise apps
with CMD EUC

The workplace is changing, organisations need more flexible working environments, there’s an increasing number of connected devices: How do organisations deliver a familiar desktop and business application consumption experience across devices and locations for users? Productivity and engagement are vital to business success and staff retention, how can this flexibility be provided without compromising security or the bottom-line?

It is possible, with Amazon AppStream 2.0 and Amazon WorkSpaces combined with specialist automation and security services provided by CMD Solutions.

CMD has combined automation with deep security experience to provide clients with secure and scalable end-user compute solutions through the use of AWS technology.

CMD leverages Amazon WorkSpaces and Amazon AppStream 2.0 to provide customers with Virtual Desktop Interfaces (VDIs) and Application streaming services that address the challenges associated with Disaster Recovery, BCP, scaling, security isolation and compliance, and high performance compute proximity

Application and Workspace VDI can be scaled up and down according to use, delivering cost and network demand efficiencies.

These services provide organisations with a consistent secure user experience, regardless of location, and the service offering is well suited to organisations that have a geographically dispersed workforce.

The flexible services allow organisations to efficiently administer full security and service provisioning within Bring Your Own Device workplaces, thus providing a familiar Microsoft desktop user experience while remaining fully secure, fully compliant and gaining the dynamic agility benefits of the AWS Cloud.

Benefits

Our approach

CMD’s automated provisioning logic has enabled our customers to spin up fleets of VDIs and provision applications on a consumption-based model to provide the services only as they are needed and automatically tear them down when they’re not.

Our End User Compute solution is complemented and underpinned by our robust AWS landing zone environment that uses defence-in-depth best practice security approaches with leading DevOps Infrastructure As Code techniques to provide an automated, highly resilient and secure solution.
