The implementation was supported by cloud services vendor base2services.
AWS WorkSpaces was launched in March this year as a fully managed Virtual Desktop Infrastructure service running on Amazon’s cloud, and eliminates the need for users to manage the back end components often required in remote desktop environments.
base2Services CEO Arthur Marinis said the company had built the Workspaces environment for CMC with “unique custom images” and migrated the domain controller to AWS. “base2services retained all the existing policies while leveraging AWS infrastructure making for an easier implementation”.
“They needed to position for growth and expansion into more geographies, and they needed to do this whilst reducing costs.
"We built the environment in a matter of two days for 55 users, tested over a week and deployed within two hours, making Workspaces a really simple to use solution. All in all, Workspaces is absolutely loved by the customer."
CMC Managing Director Elly Krommidas said "we need to provide great response for all our users and demand access from multiple locations when we are on the road. We also have to deliver highly secure and economical solutions.
“Implementing Workspaces with base2Services is another step in our ongoing use of Cloud technology to drive our business."
