The end state solution needed to support over 1,000 users through a mixture of full WorkSpaces deployments and Appstream for those users who didn’t require a full desktop solution. A legacy application was delivered through Amazon AppStream and the remaining apps were directly accessible through Amazon WorkSpaces. A site-to-site VPN connection and Transit Gateway was created between AWS and their own infrastructure to allow for connectivity to on-premise services. An AWS Lambda was also used and integrated with Active Directory to provision and terminate Amazon WorkSpaces. Additionally, AWS Control Tower was used to simplify ongoing AWS account management.
The project was delivered in three weeks. In the first week a series of workshops were held to obtain the full requirements and to create a design document for sign-off. The second week saw the solution being built out and a test plan being created. In the third week testing was completed and the system was handed over to Barnardo’s to UAT. Following go live, hyper care support was then provided by our ITIL certified managed service function.
