Starting today, August 2, Windows 365 is available, a new cloud service for organizations that lets you use Windows 10 or Windows 11 (after the official release) on any device from the cloud. Companies can instantly boot into corporate cloud PCs and broadcast their desktops, business applications, data, and settings, including collaboration and content sharing over the shared Windows 365 network. The virtual operating system runs directly in the browser and runs on remote servers.
Windows 365 is available in two editions: Business (max 300 connections per group) and Enterprise (large enterprises). Thanks to the hybrid benefits, existing licenses can be applied to Microsoft cloud services, be it Office, OneDrive, or the Microsoft 365 bundled suite. At the same time, third-party software for Windows 10 and Windows 11 is also supported. Service is platform-independent, so compatibility is unlimited – up to deployment on Mac, iPad, Linux, and Android.
What’s on offer with Windows 365 (pricing based on vCore, RAM, and file storage):
- 1 vCore, 2 GB RAM, 64 GB hybrid storage. Price – $ 20 per user / month ($ 24 – no hybrid use).
- 8 vCores, 32 GB RAM, 512 GB hybrid storage. Price – $ 158 / user / month ($ 162 – no hybrid use).
