What is Appstream 2.0?
Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed application streaming service that provides users with instant access to Windows desktop applications from anywhere on any device.
With AppStream 2.0, ISVs can:
- Reach customers in new market segments by developing a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering without rewriting their applications.
- Shorten their sales cycle by delivering frictionless online demos, trials, and training of their desktop applications to a browser so customers can get started in minutes, not days or weeks.
- Increase their software adoption by publishing deployment guidance or providing a preconfigured AppStream 2.0 image to their customers to install their desktop apps on AWS.

Apply your branding:
To create a familiar experience for your customers, you can customize the appearance of AppStream 2.0 with your own branding images, text, and website links. When you customize AppStream 2.0, your branding is displayed to users during application streaming sessions rather than the default AppStream 2.0 branding.

You don't rewrite your applications with AppStream 2.0. Simply install your desktop applications on AppStream 2.0 the same way you would on a Windows computer. Your customers access the same version of your applications and you don't need to manage multiple codebases.
Secure applications and data
Applications and data are not stored on users' computers. Your applications are streamed as encrypted pixels. AppStream 2.0 runs on AWS, so you benefit from a data center and network architecture built for the most security-sensitive organizations.
