Welcome to Windows 365 Cloud PC 😎
Microsoft recently introduced Windows 365. Let’s get started and by outlining exactly what Windows 365 is.
What is Windows 365?
Users want technology that is familiar, easy to use and always available so they can work and create fluidly across devices. Cloud PC makes this possible by combining the power and security of the cloud with the familiarity of the PC. Only Microsoft can bring together the PC and the cloud with a consistent and integrated Windows experience. Introducing Windows 365. Windows 365 is the world’s first cloud PC. With a cloud PC, Windows evolves from a device-based OS to hybrid personalized computing.
A cloud PC is your personalized desktop, apps, settings, and content streamed securely from the cloud to your devices. It enables you to decrease costs while lowering the complexity of your environment as you deploy and manage virtual endpoints in Microsoft Endpoint Manager. No additional virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) expertise or resources are needed.
In addition, Windows 365 enables you to:
- Procure, provision, and deploy in minutes, with optional automated OS updates.
- Offers user anywhere access to their personalized Windows desktop experience.
- Tailor compute and configurations for an elastic workforce.
- Pick up where you left off on the device of your choice.
- Optimize experiences on Windows endpoints.
- Scale confidently with per-user pricing.
Removes the complexity of traditional VDI deployments
With Windows 365, all the building blocks are automated for you and we make sure that the service scales with you in the most optimized way possible to use Microsoft 365 apps. It is Microsoft’s best expression of Windows and Microsoft 365 and is always secure and up to date.
The Cloud PC can be accessed anywhere from any device and can scale with a user’s changing compute needs, meaning that the user could receive the self-service privileges to release an IT admin from assigning a license that provide more compute resources. The same applies for storage upgrades and Cloud PC reboots, more about this later.
Windows 365 streams a full, personalised Windows experience to end users–including their apps, content, and settings–to any device. Unlike traditional virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), it does this by leveraging the same skills and tools you already use to deploy and manage physical PCs, at a predictable per-user, per-month price. Windows 365 delivers a Windows 10 or Windows 11 (when generally available) personalised desktop experience that is fully integrated with Microsoft 365.
