Windows cloud 365 launches Microsoft’s Cloud PC era 2022

How will Microsoft's Cloud PC impact notebook PCs for business?

Windows 365 is Microsoft’s name for the Cloud PC, a new Microsoft service that will stream Windows in the cloud to Android phones, tablets, Macs, and more.

Windows 365, available to businesses starting August 2, was announced Wednesday morning at Microsoft Ignite, Microsoft’s partner conference. The concept is simple enough: Just like you can now stream Xbox games from Microsoft’s Azure cloud to either your phone or your browser, now you can do the same for Windows 10 and eventually Windows 11. The Cloud PC won’t depend on local hardware to run Windows; instead, you’ll need a dependable, persistent Internet connection to reach Windows 365.

For now, Windows 365 will be a business offering, though you’ll be able to run it on personal devices—just like you can access your company’s SharePoint files via your own, personal, authenticated smartphone. Microsoft representatives said it will announce pricing as it moves closer to the August launch date, and it will be offered on a per-user, per-monthly basis.

Though Microsoft’s effort is groundbreaking for the company, it also follows literally decades of efforts by many companies to develop thin clients and virtualized PCs—all attempts to push computing resources off of the PC and into the cloud. Larry Ellison’s Network Computer, Rajesh Jain’s NetPC and NetTV, and even Microsoft Azure’s own ability to spin up a virtual remote server are all examples of computing in the cloud. It’s also another triumph for Microsoft’s virtualization efforts. Windows 365 and the Cloud PC is simply the next step.

How Windows 365 will work

All of this sets the stage for the Windows 365 Cloud PC, an announcement that’s as anticlimactic as it is profound. Microsoft isn’t saying that consumers will be required to run their future PCs in the cloud, though Microsoft is saying that there are advantages to doing so. Your Cloud PC’s data will be stored in the cloud, and accessible via whatever device that can access Windows 365. Microsoft is promising that data will be encrypted at rest on the device, and encrypted back and forth over the Internet, too. Finally, if you hate to manage Windows updates, don’t worry; Microsoft will manage those, too.

Your Cloud PC will not, however, be tied to a Microsoft account. It works only with Azure Active Directory. Your business will also need the appropriate license for either Windows 365 Business or Windows 365 Enterprise.

Microsoft is saying that with Windows 365, you’ll be able to leave your dedicated PC at home and work on “any device” in a pinch, including your Mac, your iPad, or your Android or Linux device. The experience, of course, will be a bit different than checking your email on a mobile Outlook app. Windows 365 will support the Windows experience: opening Outlook, downloading and saving an image, storing it on a virtual Windows desktop, opening Paint and modifying it, saving it again, and so on. 

“The ability to work whenever, however, and wherever it’s needed has become the new normal,” Wangui McKelvey, general manager of Microsoft 365, wrote in a blog post. “All employees want technology that is familiar, easy to use, and available across devices. And in the most complex cybersecurity environment we’ve ever seen, businesses need a solution that helps their employees collaborate, share, and create while also keeping their data safe and secure.”

With a Cloud PC, the question of what an employee “works on” also becomes a bit less clear. Do Cloud PC employees need business PCs? Apparently not. A blog post by Microsoft Innovation’s John Roach sheds more light: Windows 365 will be accessible though a native application or a web browser, which implies that a simple, low-end, low-cost PC will run Windows 365 just fine via the web.

Microsoft 365’s unanswered questions

What Microsoft does not say is the question that PC users will ask: What are the minimum bandwidth requirements, for example, to allow Windows 365 to run smoothly. Microsoft will offer a variety of virtualized hardware, but does not say what exactly - but - and how much the various configurations cost. The smallest configuration will be a single virtual virtual virtual CPU that is very anemia/2GB from RAM/64GB, we tell, through the 8-CPU/32GB/512GB virtual PC. Microsoft claims, "If you can stream movies, you can run Windows 365."

One of the good advantages of PC Cloud is that if the Virtual Cloud PC hardware does not produce enough horsepower, your IT department will be able to increase it with one touch of buttons - not the case for ordinary workers.

Microsoft hasn't said what resolution offer will be available, for those who prefer to work with some 4K display or resolution. Regarding how the possibilities of the Virtualization PC Games also do not have an answer there. It is very interesting, that Scott Manchester from Microsoft, Director of Program Management in Microsoft, is a member of the Arcadia project team who eventually became the Microsoft Cloud Game Program. (Microsoft 365 named Deschutes code.)

"When we built this team, we brought a number of leaders who had experience with virtualization, but most of us brought people who have experience with windows and experiences with consumer experience because it is the blade that we want to set," Manchester said in a blog posting Microsoft.

That includes thinking about the PC Cloud well the user and admin, at least to maintain and run the cloud PC. Microsoft has developed what is called the supervisory service, which continues to carry out diagnostics and can warn IT admins if the check fails.

Culture, however, it is not clear what the world of work governed by the Cloud PC later. Will employees be issued by a stupid terminal, or will they continue to receive a sophisticated and expensive business laptop? Will employees want to run Windows on their cellphones? And will Windows 365 only be a niche for special workers, or will it have a deeper impact? We have to wait and see.
