I use AWS Workspaces for several things:
- As a AWS-secured bastion host to connect to my infra.
- As a "research machine" that I can use its upstream and downstream speed to do google searches, computations and downloads (only my 1Gbps office network beats their ~500mbps downlink speed; articles load in the blink of an eye; any download is almost instant).
