Amazon AppStream enables you to stream your existing Windows applications from the cloud, reaching more users on more devices, without code modifications. With AppStream, your application will be deployed and rendered on AWS infrastructure and the output is streamed to mass-market devices, such as personal computers, tablets, and mobile phones.

Why bother? Several reasons. First, you eliminating scaling issues, since you are hosting your app in Amazon’s cloud, you can scale up to deliver your app as demand increases. You can support multiple device types easily, which is one of the reasons why this offering is so potent. Updates to your app are easier, since you are managing them all centrally from one location. And your app is instantly on and available, without having to wait for a device to boot or load it.

We’ll see if this is the future of app delivery or not, but it is an interesting program nonetheless.
