A job posting from Microsoft reveals the company is still working on Cloud PC, a service that basically turns Windows 10 into "PC-as-a-Service". The goal here is to offer clients general-purpose computing, speed and performance, while focusing on scalability and data processing for businesses.

Cloud PC is expected to launch later this year. Different service plans will be offered, depending on the level of hardware resources a customer needs. For example, the "heavy" configuration will offer 2 vCPUs, 8GB RAM, and a 96GB SSD. The Cloud PC service will be accessible from any device that has the Microsoft Remote Desktop app.
"Microsoft Cloud PC is a strategic, new offering that is built on top of Windows Virtual Desktop to delivering Desktop as a Service. At its core, Cloud PC provides business customers a modern, elastic, cloud-based Windows experience and will allow organizations to stay current in a more simplistic and scalable manner."
