Earlier this week, Microsoft launched its Windows 365 Cloud PC service. This is a cloud-based version of Windows 10, it's a subscription-based service for businesses. Basically, this service will give you access to your Windows 10 desktop from anywhere in the world, no matter which device you're using. Cloud PC includes all your applications as well as all your data. You can run it straight from a browser.

Microsoft sells a variety of plans to businesses, with prices starting at $24 per license per month for the most basic configurations. Enterprises can pick the number of CPU cores, RAM, and storage space that is required. The highest-end offer features eight cores, 32GB RAM, and 512GB of storage for $162 per license per month.

Microsoft massively underestimated trial demand

A free 2-month trial was offered but it looks like Microsoft severely underestimated the popularity of this option. Just a single day after launch, Microsoft saw itself forced to pause the trial program as it had run out of allotted server capacity.

Microsoft promises to resume the trial program as soon as possible. You can sign up over here to stay informed.
