Interactive Streaming is disrupting many industries! AWS AppStream is the managed solution from AWS for interactively streaming any app. Driven by technical evolution, faster networks, advent of 5G, cheaper compute and graphics instances, interactive streaming is poised for breakthrough solutions. Streaming services (Amazon Music, Prime Video) disrupted the industry a decade ago focusing on static streaming. AWS AppStream takes the same principles and enables App-On-Demand through interactive streaming. Be it a productivity or enterprise app, just use the client of your choice (Mobile, Desktop) and instantly stream the app you want. No physical media, no specialized hardware, no installation necessary.

Our team is innovating in multiple areas to give our customers the best in class interactive streaming platform. Millions of concurrent streams, snappy click to app stream start, faster than human perception end to end latency of stream, lowest possible cost per stream, secure and isolated streams for best compute and graphics utilization, high fidelity graphics, broad server OS selection as well as client OS footprint. These are all goals we are tackling by leveraging the best AWS has to offer. We are looking for people who believe in the promise of cloud computing, who are excited by hard computer science problems and who are willing to re-imagine what's possible. Read more on AppStream.
