Centralized desktop streaming with Amazon AppStream

Use case


Main challenges

As companies grow and allow employees to work remotely, it becomes difficult and expensive to deliver applications to employees and partners globally. Expanding on-premises infrastructure to meet user demand is cost-prohibitive. It is time-consuming to reach users in different locations and rewrite applications to meet their devices' restrictive features. 

Instantaneously, running traditional desktop software keeps the apps and information on the device, raising security concerns. 

Business/technical goals

Securely deliver desktop applications to any computer.

Scale to any number of users without infrastructure. 

Accelerate application adoption and shorten the software implementation cycle by delivering demos, trials, and training of desktop applications to a browser. The process gets users started in minutes. 


Technofy gets you started with Amazon AppStream, a fully managed non-persistent application, and desktop streaming service. The service enables you to centrally manage your desktop applications and securely deliver them to any computer. With Amazon AppStream, your business can quickly scale to many users worldwide without purchasing, provisioning, and operating hardware and infrastructure. 
AppStream provides consistent application performance since your desktop apps run on optimized virtual machines to meet your use case needs. 

Situation before & after the implementation


Organizations face challenges with acquiring, provisioning, and operating hardware and infrastructure to run desktop applications. The challenge is even profound in situations where employees access applications remotely. 


With Amazon AppStream, you do not purchase or operate any infrastructure. Yet, you run applications securely like on any other standard desktop. You can scale the application access based on demand. Enterprises deploy AppStream to build a global collaboration model and reduce operating costs. You can run any desktop application on any device, including Windows and Linux PC, Macs, and Chromebooks. 



Introduction with the client to understand his context - both business and technical. The aim of the phase is to explore this new context, gather the needs through exchange with the different key points of contact, answer unclear points, and agree on a defined scope.


Proposition of several potential solutions that could fit the need and iterate on it based on client feedback. In this step, we can include a prototype or a Proof of Concept to have a better sense of the feasibility of the architecture to put in place with its different layers/components.

Implementation & tests

Iterative phase based on Agile methodologies & rituals: sprint planning, demo, retrospective, prioritization, etc. Each sprint will include the implementation of the technical architecture, the deployment of the infrastructure, and the development phase if required.


Go in production with the defined solution and ensure post-production support if required.
