Launch a Virtual Desktop Using Amazon WorkSpaces

With Amazon WorkSpaces, you can provision virtual, cloud-based Microsoft Windows desktops for your users, known as WorkSpaces.

Amazon WorkSpaces uses a directory to store and manage information for your WorkSpaces and users. You can create a Simple AD directory or a Microsoft AD directory, connect to an existing Microsoft Active Directory using Active Directory Connector, or create a trust relationship between your Microsoft AD directory and your on-premises domain.

The following tutorials show you how launch a WorkSpace using the supported directory service options.
