Vanilla vs Customised
We are a small startup company that have built our platform on AWS. The web platform we have built offers clients two options. Vanilla - basic features and then Premium Plus where we allow 30% customisation for an additional charge. We currently have one client on-baorded with LOTS of customisation. The thinking is for the client to improve our platform so any changes done by customers, we keep and incorporate into vanilla. The client has the option to use Vanilla for 3 months, see if they like it and if they want to continue with customisation we will then start the dev process. However, we currently find ourselves incurring significant technical debt with Client no 2 who has had the platform for 3 months, they are about to sign the contract. But we have incurred a R250 000.00 worth of debt as we had to engage with the client answering questions, confirming requirements, investigating whether our platform can do what they want it to do. There is a real risk that if the client does not go ahead with the sale, then we have just lost all of that investment of time, people and expertise. How can we prevent this with Client 3?
Can I use the NICE DCV connection gateway to 'proxy' DCV client connections without defining a 'web resources' component?
I have experimented with the [NICE DCV connection gateway and session manager](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/dcv/index.html). The last step of connecting with a DCV client through the gateway is not working as I thought it should work. The gateway always tries to load web assets from a 'web resources' url, but I am not using a browser to connect. Leaving out the 'web resources' from the gateway configuration is not possible, it won't start without it. I have described my setup and configuration steps [here](http://blog.joustie.nl/images/2022/01/architecture.drawio.png) Any idea where to look?
Uploading PC CD Games to my workspace
HI, I have some PC CD games that I used on my Windows machine. I want to know if I can upload the games to my AWS Windows workspace? I now would use the AWS desktop app to connect to my AWS windows workspace and play the game using the cloud. Is this possible? 1) how do I get the game uploaded to my AWS workspace? Do I order a hardrive (snow device) from AWS load the games on the snowdevice at home and then send the hardrive back to AWS data center and have them uploaded to my workspace? I like this idea so I can go to any computer with internet connection and the AWS Workspace App and play the game from anywhere. 2) Am I thinking about this all wrong? What other means do you recommend for playing games using the AWS workspace or any suggestions? Part of my motivation is to learn about AWS workspaces and what the capabilities are over a home computer. Maybe all I need to buy is a thin client here at home and not buy the new windows 11 machine.
AWS Workspaces - moving between OUs
We are using AWS Workspaces with AD connector and would like to test moving Workspaces between OUs. I believe moving a Widows Workspace VM from the OU that it was deployed to initially should not affect the Workspace in any way from the point of AWS as OU parameter is only used for the initial deployment. Is this a correct assumption?
