Ingram Micro Cloud Partners With Samsung to Bring Windows Desktop as a Service to the Mobile Prosumer Using Amazon WorkSpaces

Ingram Micro Cloud has launched a new solution automating the setup of Amazon WorkSpaces and Microsoft Windows Desktop as a Service (DaaS) for Samsung Galaxy Note8, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Samsung DeX prosumers – so customers can be up and running with a virtual desktop on their smartphone “in just a few easy steps.”

The Samsung DeX Station connects the Galaxy Note8 or Galaxy S8/S8+ to any type of FHD display with an HDMI port, as well as a mouse and keyboard – to provide a desktop experience powered by a smartphone. By combining Samsung DeX with Amazon WorkSpaces, users would be able to gain a “powerful” desktop experience with the ability to “securely” access their own Microsoft Windows virtual desktop, files and applications. 

“Using our robust platform and technical expertise, the Ingram Micro Cloud services team has created this simplified and automated solution for Samsung mobile users to easily get set up and use a virtual Windows desktop,” said Tarik Faouzi, vice president, Global Cloud Partners and Solutions, Ingram Micro. “This collaboration demonstrates Ingram Micro Cloud’s commitment to empower every user and partner by reducing the complexities of access to innovative cloud technologies.” 

With Ingram Micro Cloud’s solution, Samsung DeX customers can have their virtual Windows desktop via Amazon’s WorkSpaces set up and accessed “quickly and easily.”

“Running all of your Android and Windows programs from your Samsung Galaxy Note8 and S8/S8+ on Samsung DeX is something you have to experience to believe,” said Mok Oh, vice president, Business Development, Samsung Electronics. “We have worked with Amazon Web Services and Ingram Micro Cloud to make this accessible to more users, enabling you to be more productive from anywhere.”

Amazon WorkSpaces will also be available to reseller partners in the U.S. from the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace later this year. This would allow Ingram Micro partners to create a complete mobile desktop solution for their business customers by bundling the Galaxy Note8 or Galaxy S8/S8+ and DeX Station with Amazon WorkSpaces, along with their choice of additional cloud services from the Ingram Micro portfolio.

“Ingram Micro Cloud is pleased to collaborate with Samsung Electronics and Amazon Web Services to deliver on the promise of the complete mobile workspace for our channel partners,” added Mr. Faouzi. “With the latest Samsung smartphones and DeX Station, Amazon WorkSpaces and other services from the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, we are excited to provide this innovative solution to our partners and their customers.”
