Microsoft at its Microsoft Inspire event announced the launch of Windows 365, a cloud service that introduces a new means to experience Windows 10 or Windows 11. Made for businesses of all sizes, Windows 365’s OS will be on the Microsoft Cloud, permitting connectivity to all apps, devices, data, and settings no matter from where a user is.
“With Windows 365, we’re creating a new category: the Cloud PC,” said Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO, Microsoft. “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.” With the strength of the cloud and power of Windows OS, Windows 365 gives any organization better benefit in three significant areas: 1) Powerful – The users can conveniently from the cloud stream all their data, applications, settings, tools, across any device and any location. 2) Simple – The Cloud PC has a seamless experience as users can log in and pick back up where they left off across devices. For IT teams, Windows 365 helps to simplify the updates, deployment, and management. This helps IT teams to effortlessly manage the access of employees towards organizations’ workloads and data. 3) Secure – Leveraging the principles of Zero Trust and the power of the cloud, Windows 365 is secured by design. Information is stored and secured in the cloud, not on any device.
