Microsoft's Windows 365 cloud PC will be available to corporate customers on August 2 in two versions: Windows 365 Business and Windows 365 Enterprise.
After Windows 11, Microsoft has launched yet another product called Windows 365, which is a subscription-based cloud OS service. This is focused more on business users who can stream Windows 10 or Windows 11 directly on their low specs PC or even tablets. It can particularly be helpful for people having ARM PCs and want to run x86 based OS, or vice versa. It can also be used on a Mac machine.
Microsoft has said that Windows 365 is built on top of Azure Virtual Desktop.The service is for businesses of all sizes, and that's its key point. Businesses don't need to hire someone with virtualization experience for this to work. It will be easier to setup, and easily manageable, as it does not require the security and manageability of PCs individually.
"Just like applications were brought to the cloud with SaaS, we are now bringing the operating system to the cloud, providing organizations with greater flexibility and a secure way to empower their workforce to be more productive and connected, regardless of location," said Satya Nadella during the 'Microsoft Inspire 2021'event.
Ultimately, this kind of setup makes it easier for large companies to assign their employees with enterprise-level security and organizational policies pertaining to the operating system. Microsoft also talked to some companies and organizations that are already excited about the service.The new product will be available to Microsoft's corporate customers on August 2 in two versions: Windows 365 Business and Windows 365 Enterprise. Pricing would be at a rate per user, per month, depending on the storage size of the installation.
