Stream your Windows Experience Securely from Microsoft Cloud to Any Device with Windows 365
As some countries make their way out of the challenges and disruption of the past 1.5 years, we are seeing a new world of work emerge. Businesses everywhere have transformed themselves through remote collaboration and virtual operations. And as people start embracing the hybrid work – with some people continue working from home, some returning to the office and some mix of the two, things will be different all over again. To empower this new world of hybrid work with a new perspective, security and power of the cloud, Microsoft recently announced Windows 365 Cloud PC. This arrives as an expansion of the Microsoft 365 software suite. Much like the Azure Virtual Desktop this new SaaS (Software as a Service) offering delivers the operating system to the cloud providing organisations with the security and flexibility to enable their workforce to be more productive. Unlike Azure which takes an expert to set up properly, Microsoft sets up Windows 365 for you wherein you can monitor and maintain the Cloud Pc’s performance.
According to Microsoft, Windows 365 comes as a cloud service that introduces a new way of experiencing Windows 10 or Windows 11 for businesses of all sizes. The approach of taking Windows 365 to the Microsoft cloud, securely streaming full windows experience including all the apps, data and settings to your corporate and personal devices creates a new personal computing category – the Cloud PC. Bringing the cloud to personal computing will be a milestone for how employees work in the future and the opportunities this will create.
- Greater simplicity with advanced tools
One of the biggest advantages of Windows 365 is its simplicity and flexibility. You can choose the size of the cloud PC that fits the needs of your organisation. Built on the Azure Virtual Desktop, Windows 365 simplifies the virtualisation experience by handling all the details. To make sure that your users are getting the best experience you can scale the processing power and monitor the performance of cloud PC.
- Powerful and versatile tool
With the instant-on boot to the personal PC users would be able to stream data, apps and tools from the cloud across any device. As Windows 365 provides full PC experience on the cloud, the cloud provides versatility in the power and storage enabling the IT to scale up and down based on their requirements. There is also a choice of either Windows 10 or 11 for the organisations to choose from.
- Zero trust cloud security
Windows 365 helps solve today’s critical security challenges by storing, design and securing all the information in the cloud. The MFA (multi-factor authentication) also works to explicitly verify any access or login attempt to this PC through the Microsoft Azure Active Directory. The Microsoft defender also works seamlessly with Cloud PC to protect your device.
Microsoft is all set to make this Windows 365 available worldwide starting 2nd Aug 2021. This new Cloud PC sounds incredibly convenient though the main benefit would be speed and power. However, subscribers can also pick how powerful they want their Cloud PC to be and run demanding apps. It also supports all of Microsoft’s business apps such as Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Power Platform and more. Microsoft has also been working with independent software vendor (ISV) partners in its efforts of Windows DaaS (Desktop as a Service).
The push towards remote working has accelerated the shift towards more portable devices with many organisations making investments in desktop as a service and platform as a service. This cloud pc approach is the future where the hardware used is not bound to the task at hand and a future where a good internet connection is the only required thing to do work from anywhere.
