Stream your Windows experience securely and go anywhere
Windows 365 is your answer to provisioning desktops in the cloud – it’s a new way to experience Windows 10 or Windows 11. This cloud service streams the full Windows experience to any device, including apps, data, and settings from the Microsoft Azure platform. It leverages the personal cloud computing category Microsoft calls Cloud PC – a persistent desktop, accessible through any web browser or Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
Windows 365 gives you an ultra-modern solution for provisioning and managing your virtual desktops
Give your users the power and security of the cloud on any of their devices
Create a full desktop environment without additional gateway servers, VPNs or corporate devices
Publish as many desktops as you need to accommodate your diverse workloads
Easily manage and configure with Endpoint Manager using the exact same processes and tools
Reduce costs with adjustable compute and storage resources
Provides individual persistent desktop ownership that follows the user anywhere
Windows 365 for your organisation
Invigorate your employees
Your users can securely stream their personalised Windows experience, including desktop, apps, settings, and content to any device and to anywhere location.
Moving from one workspace to another? Your users can pick up right where they left off, because the desktop state is the same, even when devices and locations are switched.
Empower your IT department
Powered by Azure Virtual Desktop, the ease of a fully managed service will allow you to assign and configure your virtual desktops using familiar tools like Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
Options to suit organisations of all sizes
What are the differences between Windows 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop?
|Windows 365||Azure Virtual Desktop|
|Skills||Does your IT staff have VDI experience?||No VDI expertise required – deploy and manage using MEM or small business portal||Use VDI, Azure and MEM expertise to customize and manage your desktop virtualisation environment|
|Pricing||Do you need predictable monthly pricing, or do you prefer “pay as you go” consumption-based pricing?||Predictable monthly pricing per user||Consumption-based pricing based on actual use of Azure infrastructure|
|End user||How many hours/days do end users access the virtual desktop? Can users share a virtual machine, or do they need a personal desktop?||Personalised Windows 10 or 11 desktop experience for each user||Pricing advantage for users with low utilisation, or pooled users per VM (multi-session)|
|Compliance||Any regulatory or compliance requirements to consider? Do you need to control the location of cloud desktops for performance?||Select the Azure datacenter region that best fits your needs. Azure has 100+ compliance certs, more than any other cloud.||Select the Azure datacenter region that best fits your needs. Azure has 100+ compliance certs, more than any other cloud.|
