Microsoft Corporation this week announced Windows 365 – a cloud service that introduces a new way to experience Windows 10 or Windows 11 to businesses of all sizes.
The cloud service takes the operating system to the Microsoft Cloud, streaming the full Windows experience – apps, data, and settings – to personal or corporate devices.
Secure by design and built with the principles of Zero Trust, the service secures and stores information in the cloud, not on the device, providing a secure, productive experience for workers from interns and contractors to software developers and industrial designers.
It also creates a new hybrid personal computing category called Cloud PC, which uses both the power of the cloud and the capabilities of the device to provide a full, personalized Windows experience.
Highlights of Windows 365
Windows 365 of course has a wide array of highlights since it is playing on the power of the Windows operating system and the strength of the cloud.
With instant-on boot to their personal Cloud PC, users can stream all their applications, tools, data, and settings from the cloud across any device.
This means one will get to experience the full PC experience in the cloud.
The cloud also provides versatility in processing power and storage, enabling IT to scale up or down, based on their need with organizations able to choose between Windows 10 or Windows 11, and choose the Cloud PC that works for them with per-user per-month pricing.
Users can also log in and pick back up where they left off across devices, providing a simple and familiar Windows experience delivered by the cloud.
For IT, 365 also simplifies deployment, updates, and management —without any virtualization experience.
The Windows is optimized for the endpoint, hence allowing IT to easily procure, deploy, and manage Cloud PCs for their organization just like they manage physical PCs through Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
Small and mid-size businesses can also purchase the Windows directly or through a cloud service provider, and set-up their organization with Cloud PCs with just a few clicks.
Last but not least, the Windows is secure by design, as it leverages on the power of the cloud and the principles of Zero Trust.
Information is secured and stored in the cloud, not on the device.
Microsoft Malaysia says that Windows 365 will be generally available to businesses of all sizes starting on Aug. 2, 2021.
