Businesses can grab access to the Windows 365 cloud-based setup from August 2 of this year, after Microsoft officially unveiled it back in July. Windows 365 Business and Enterprise Cloud plans start at $31 per user per month (opens in new tab).
For this fee, you get access to a cloud PC setup with the equivalent of 4GB of RAM, two CPUs and 128GB of storage. You can view a complete breakdown of the service on the Windows 365 pricing page (opens in new tab), which lists more packages and enterprise-ready subscriptions.
The new Windows 365 setup looks to be the perfect instant-on PC solution for the modern worker. By enabling business and personal users to quickly resume their workloads, it suits the hybrid working environments many businesses now find themselves in because of the pandemic.
