The benefit here is that you'll get the same Windows environment wherever you are, no matter which device you're using. Microsoft will support Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
Initially, the service will be Windows 10-based, later it will be updated to Windows 11. Microsoft will give you a Cloud PC that will include all your applications, all your data, and all your settings. It will come with cloud storage and secure connectivity to workplace resources.
Microsoft will launch Windows 365 on August 2, 2021. It's pitched as a service for businesses of any size. There will be Windows 365 Business and Windows 365 Enterprise.
How much will Windows 365 cost?There are no detailed pricing tiers yet, but Microsoft has revealed it plans to charge $31/month per user for a Windows 365 Business configuration with dual-core CPU, 4GB RAM, and 128GB storage. There will be configurations ranging from one to eight CPU cores, 2GB to 32GB RAM, and 64GB to 512GB of storage.
Grabbed this during an Inspire session. I kindly disagree with @maryjofoley @thurrott that Windows 365 too expensive for SMB. We already see demand as Azure VD has more overhead/burden to run. Seems any M365 SKU enables - BP=Business Premium. Big for security & DR resilience. pic.twitter.com/xXnxdAQLgG— Derek Gabriel (@dsghi) July 15, 2021
