Ingram Micro offers AWS & Microsoft cloud services using mobile phones through Samsung DeX PCs

In an interesting move, Ingram Micro Inc., has launched its simplified, point-of-entry Cloud Store for Samsung DeX customers. Ingram Micro Cloud’s solution automates the setup of Amazon WorkSpaces and Microsoft Windows Desktop as a Service (DaaS) for Samsung Galaxy Note8, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Samsung DeX prosumers so they can be up and running with a virtual desktop on their smartphone in just a few easy steps.
The Samsung DeX Station connects the Galaxy Note8 or Galaxy S8/S8+ to any type of FHD display with an HDMI port, as well as a mouse and keyboard, to provide a desktop experience powered by your smartphone. By combining Samsung DeX with Amazon WorkSpaces, users can gain a more powerful desktop experience with the ability to securely access their own Microsoft Windows virtual desktop, files and applications. However, virtual desktop solutions have typically been thought of as only an enterprise or SMB solution due to complex configuration requirements.
“Using our robust platform and technical expertise, the Ingram Micro Cloud services team has created this simplified and automated solution for Samsung mobile users to easily get set up and use a virtual Windows desktop,” said Tarik Faouzi, Vice President, Global Cloud Partners & Solutions, Ingram Micro. “This collaboration demonstrates Ingram Micro Cloud’s commitment to empower every user and partner by reducing the complexities of access to innovative cloud technologies”, added he.
Mok Oh, vice president, Business Development at Samsung Electronics, said, “Running Android and Windows programs from Samsung Galaxy Note8 and S8/S8+ on Samsung DeX is something to experience to believe. We’ve worked with Amazon Web Services and Ingram Micro Cloud for making this accessible to more users enabling them to be more productive from anywhere”.
“Accessing Amazon WorkSpaces using Samsung DeX provides customers with a powerful Windows desktop experience through their smartphone, delivering access to the documents, applications, and resources they need with incredible flexibility,” said Nathan Thomas, General Manager, Amazon WorkSpaces. “Ingram Micro will help bring this anywhere, anytime mobile desktop functionality to even more customers, with easy deployment and trusted service and support”, viewed Thomas.
Faouzi of Ingram Micro said, “With the latest Samsung smartphones and DeX Station, Amazon WorkSpaces and other services from the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, we are excited to provide this innovative solution to our partners and their customers”.
