Microsoft Windows 365 – The tech giant Microsoft on Wednesday has announced a fresh cloud service called “Windows 365”. Windows 365 will run in the Microsoft cloud and will allow its users to set up and experience “Cloud PC” on smartphones, tablets, and PCs.
Microsoft has introduced this feature to help the micro to macro business sizes and to boost the hybrid work scenario.
Windows 365 is not a new OS. It’s a new way to experience Windows 10 or Windows 11 in a virtual environment. It provides a full-fledged windows experience to any device.
Satya Nadella CEO of Microsoft said that with Windows 365, the company is creating a new category: The Cloud PC.
“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,” Nadella said during the ‘Microsoft Inspire 2021’ event.
Microsoft Windows 365 availability
From August 2nd, 2021 this feature will be generally available to all business sizes. Windows 365 can be directly purchased through a cloud service provider, and set-up their organization with Cloud PCs with just a few clicks.
Windows 365 vs Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD)
Now you might be confused between the windows latest feature and Azure virtual desktop(AVD) / Azure Virtual Machine. Let me clear this to you. MW365 is not a replacement for Azure virtual desktop(AVD) / Azure Virtual Machine.
“In Azure virtual desktop(AVD) / Azure Virtual Machine you pay on a consumption basis while in Windows 365, you will pay per user per month per pc i.e, per cloud pc”.
“Cloud PC is an exciting, new category of hybrid personal computing that turns any device into a personalized, productive, and secure digital workspace,” Jared Spataro, corporate vice president, Microsoft 365 said.
With a feature like an instant-on boot, users can stream all their applications, tools, and, data from the cloud across any device.
Microsoft Windows 365 delivers full PC experience in the cloud. There is a versatility in Cloud to scale up or down the processing power and storage based on user needs.
