Nuvens will start you on your Amazon WorkSpaces virtual desktop in the cloud journey at zero cost to your company. With Amazon WorkSpaces, you don’t need complicated infrastructure to support a fully available, scalable, configurable, and secure service whenever your user base requires it. It really is as good as it sounds.


The Nuvens Experience

At Nuvens, we just do Amazon Web Services, and out of the ever-growing services AWS offers, we specialize in and focus on a select few. Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed, secure cloud desktop service. You can use Amazon WorkSpaces to provision either Windows or Linux desktops in just a few minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to workers across the globe. You can pay either monthly or hourly for the WorkSpaces you launch, which helps you save money when compared to traditional desktops and on-premises VDI solutions.

The Nuvens Guide to Project Success

Proof of Technology

Our definition of the proof of technology is where you can download and trial up to two WorkSpaces for 60 days via the AWS Free Tier initiative. During this stage, you can evaluate it in your own time, test it on a few devices, and see that it actually does what it says on the tin.

To access the Free Tier, you can either set this account up yourself or ask Nuvens to set it up for you. There are advantages to engaging Nuvens at this early stage, as our billing platform offers greater flexibility over the standard AWS platform, and we are able to offer more flexible billing terms and alerts should you want to use more than the free tier. The pricing and AWS interface are exactly the same as what you would receive from signing up directly.

Proof of Concept

Once you have completed stage one and are happy with what you have seen, it is time to focus on the proof of concept. During this phase, we will help you, through a series of short workshops or remote sessions, create a test environment for up to 20 WorkSpaces for 60 days.

Included in this process would be the deployment and testing of up to five key business applications and their integration into your sandbox environment. This engagement is co-funded between ourselves and AWS, meaning ZERO cost to yourselves.


Many companies do not fully understand their application set, and this is where Nuvens can really help. We will provide you with an accurate overview of your environment—for example, which applications are used, CPU usage, memory activity, network traffic, which are best suited for virtualization, traffic generated, and hardware age.

From the information gathered in this phase, you will be able to make data-driven, informed decisions as to the right path to take to move your desktop into a hosted environment.

HLD and Cost Estimation

Along with a high-level design, we will take the information gleaned in the previous phase and provide you with cost based on correct WorkSpace sizing for users, also known as rightsizing.

During this process, we will also look at your existing management and security tools to ensure they are fit for purpose for Amazon WorkSpaces.

Low Level Design and Deployment

We use AWS best practices to design our environments and will liaise with your relevant staff, in workshops or one-on-one sessions, to form a vision of your user requirements. This will ensure that the correct WorkSpaces and applications are assigned to your users and may open up other areas where WorkSpaces can be used to benefit your company.

We will also take into account your existing application deployment environment and appropriately design the solution with this in mind.

Handover and Skills Transfer

You can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like. We generally find a combination of both works best; however, we can also offer a complete, ongoing, managed service once migrated.

What we truly believe is unique is the added value we bring to your deployment with the integration of our WorkSpaces Portal for both users and admins, simplifying ongoing deployment and management, and helping users self-service their day-to-day needs. Your portal will be custom-branded and will require zero knowledge of using the Amazon platform for the day-to-day management of your WorkSpaces Estate.
