Amazon WorkDocs

Secure file collaboration and management, simplified

Amazon WorkDocs is a secure, fully managed, file collaboration and management service, with an extensible SDK, that runs on AWS.

With Amazon WorkDocs, all your files are stored on one service. Users can share files, provide rich feedback, and access their files on WorkDocs from any device. WorkDocs encrypts data in transit and at rest, and offers powerful management controls, active directory integration, and near real-time visibility into file and user actions. The WorkDocs SDK allows you to use the same AWS tools you are already familiar with to integrate WorkDocs with AWS products and services, your existing solutions, third-party applications, or build your own. You don’t have to worry about deploying updates, or patching software, and can scale users and storage up or down with a few clicks. WorkDocs offers low, pay-as-you-go pricing for users and storage, and no charge for API calls. There are no upfront commitments or long-term contracts.

Use cases

Secure & Compliant

Amazon WorkDocs makes it easy for teams to securely collaborate and manage files. Users can create shared folders, and restrict access to only their team’s Active Directory user group and other invited users. With this, all of your teams’ files are stored in their shared folder on WorkDocs and can be accessed from any device, at any time. They can edit files using the default applications on their computer or mobile device in a few clicks, and save changes on WorkDocs. With WorkDocs Drive, every file on WorkDocs is available in Windows File Explorer, and users can share files, invite users, store favorites offline, and open files in the web client. Teams can review and search the folder’s activity to see what’s going on, and view all feedback right next to their files.

Enterprise File Sync and Share

Using the Amazon WorkDocs sync client, files stored on WorkDocs are synced to your users’ computers, and available for offline access. Any changes made locally are automatically synced to WorkDocs, and other devices when they’re online. Windows and Amazon WorkSpaces users can use WorkDocs Drive for on-demand access to all of their content on WorkDocs through a mounted drive that does not store files locally.

Content repository for ECM

You can use Amazon WorkDocs as the underlying content repository for your Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution. The WorkDocs SDK can integrate WorkDocs with your existing business processes to capture, secure, analyze, backup, and share your content. You can also build your own ECM on AWS with WorkDocs. Building your ECM with WorkDocs means you can seamlessly scale your storage and users without worrying about performance issues or capacity limitations.

Build content rich applications

You can use the Amazon WorkDocs SDK to simplify building content and collaboration rich applications. Using a few lines of code, you can use WorkDocs API calls for user administration, storage, permission management, sharing, commenting, metadata, labeling, and activity tracking. The Amazon WorkDocs SDK is part of the AWS SDK, so you can easily take advantage of the power of AWS for security, monitoring, business logic, storage, artificial intelligence, and app development. Amazon WorkDocs is a fully managed service so you don’t need to worry about provisioning hardware and managing infrastructure to power your content and collaboration experience.

Replace legacy network file shares

You can use Amazon WorkDocs Drive as your home drive without storing files locally. WorkDocs Drive streams files to your desktop on-demand, and you don’t need network file shares or additional storage devices. Every file on WorkDocs is available in Windows File Explorer, and users can share files, invite users, store favorites offline, and open files in the web client.
