Workspace Service (WKS)

Desktops hosted in the cloud

Clouds allow virtual desktop infrastructures to be set up easily. To do so, the available virtualized resources simply need to be bundled in the corresponding workspace flavors. For a basic workplace system, you just need an operating system that is suitable for end users. Users of cloud workplaces do not need to take care of the cloud itself (or log in to it); they merely receive an access link and can log in to their workplace from anywhere. Their data can also be stored in the cloud.

Workspace Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

The Open Telekom Cloud offers five workspace flavors for standard workplaces and graphics-intensive applications (with additional virtualized graphics card). When setting up the workplace systems, Windows 7 or Windows 10 can be chosen as an operating system. These are mapped by the server operating system as standard. However, the service also enables customers to use their own operating system licenses and offers two-factor authentication, encryption and Internet access.

In addition to these VMs, it is also possible to use Dedicated Hosts as an infrastructural basis for virtual desktops. The advantage is that users can also use their own Windows licenses, and a Windows Server license is not required. Workspace Services are billed on an hourly basis. They include all backend systems required for streaming the Workspace Service.

The workplace systems are managed centrally by an administrator at the customer. As soon as this administrator has rolled out the corresponding virtual machines, users receive an email containing the access data for their workplace.
