Access Cloud PCs from anywhere

Software King of the World Microsoft is putting its operating system in the cloud.

Dubbed Windows 365, Vole is providing a  new service that will let businesses access Cloud PCs from anywhere, streaming a version of Windows 10 or Windows 11 in a web browser.

While virtualisation and remote access to PCs have existed for more than a decade, Microsoft is betting on Windows 365 to offer Cloud PCs to businesses just as they shift toward a mix of office and remote work.

Windows 365 will work on any modern web browser or through Microsoft's Remote Desktop app, allowing users to access their Cloud PC from a variety of devices.

"Windows 365 provides an instant-on boot experience", according to Wangui McKelvey, a general manager for Microsoft 365. This instant access lets workers stream their Windows session with all their same apps, tools, data, and settings across Macs, iPads, Linux machines, and Android devices.

"You can pick up right where you left off, because the state of your Cloud PC remains the same, even when you switch devices", explains McKelvey.
