Amazon Workspaces lets you work online and collaborate with your team from anywhere in the world. To make it even more useful, AWS updated WorkSpaces with two new features.
Hourly Billing on Amazon WorkSpaces
You can now save on WorkSpaces by selecting to be charged by the hour. This works really well if you use the service sporadically, when travelling or working part-time.
There are two modes available: AlwaysOn, where the WorkSpace is always running and you are billed by the month, and; AutoStop, wherein your billing stops if you disconnect for 1-48 hours, depending on your choice. Administrators can force a WorkSpace to stop.
This feature is now available for newly opened WorkSpaces, with existing WorkSpaces soon to follow.
Expanded Root Volume
From now on, all new WorkSpace start with a root volume of 80 Gb FOR FREE. This means more space for your applications and files. Admins may rebuild existing WorkSpaces to get this added feature.
