What is Windows 365 Cloud PC and How to Use it?
Windows 365 is a new Microsoft cloud service that securely streams the complete Windows 10 or Windows 11 experience including all apps, data, and settings on personal or corporate devices — to the Microsoft Cloud.
Cloud PC is the next step in Microsoft’s cloud-first strategy, which began with Windows Server on Azure and continues with the Office suite as part of Microsoft 365. Windows 365, in conjunction with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365, will enable the post-pandemic digital workplace of the future, allowing businesses to respond to changing work demands in a hybrid work environment.
This new paradigm, according to Microsoft, isn’t only about permitting and safeguarding remote access but also about increasing user experience and productivity. Windows 365 is based on Azure Virtual Desktop, which streamlines the virtualization process and eliminates the complexity of traditional VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) installations.
Virtualization may be challenging to set up and manage, especially for companies without dedicated IT staff. On the other hand, large companies can continue to use Azure Virtual Desktop to update their VDI in the cloud if they want more customization and flexibility.
Benefits of Windows 365
Regardless of the device or operating system — Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android — Windows 365 provides a consistent Windows experience. It supports Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Power Platform, line of business applications, other third-party apps, and line of business apps and other third-party apps. In addition, customers with 150 or more users will be eligible for Microsoft’s free App Assure service, which helps address app compatibility concerns.
It offers an instant-on boot experience that allows users to stream all of their personalized apps, tools, data, and settings from the cloud to any device, allowing them to pick up just where they left off on their preferred device. Even when a user switches devices, the status of their Cloud PC remains the same.
