Virtual Desktop AWS

hindsight asked
Last Modified: 2021-02-05
AWS pricing is a foreign language to me but I've been asked by a customer to get some pricing estimates to run virtual Windows 10 desktops in AWS.  They currently have a number of SQL already in AWS that were setup by a different company.  The end users are application developers.  Their current physical workstations are generally i7, 16-32Gb, and 500Gb ssd.  Looking for similar specs with AWS.

The very little I do know is we would have to build the image ourselves and upload it.  Also, we would be responsible for all of the Microsoft licensing.

Thank you in advanced
