Amazon WorkSpaces Introduces Ubuntu Desktops

Sébastien Stormacq, on aws.amazon.com:

Starting today, you can also provision Ubuntu desktops for your developers, engineers, or data scientists.

For this launch, we chose to use version 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish). Canonical has optimized the base image for cloud development use cases. We have preinstalled AWS CLI and SDK.

Initially no support from their macOS client, but this is good news.

WM within AWS are common recipe nowadays1 when some data needs to be manipulated with something web tools can’t deal with. It’s close” to the data, and destroy the VM afterwards. Reducing the trail of data and leak points.

  1. For me anyway.↩︎
