Can you imagine 500 employees traveling around the world and being able to access their Windows desktop via a mobile phone? This super portable service is called Microsoft Cloud PC and it is closer than we think! According to some reports, Microsoft is likely to introduce this service during the annual Build 2021 development conference on May 25th.
To install an operating system, you need to have proper hardware resources such as enough space on a hard disk, enough RAM memory, and a solid processor. If you want to run the latest version of Windows, you will need to have 20GB of free hard disk space, 1GB of RAM memory, and at least a 1-GHz processor. But if you want to get the best out of your computer, you must have a much better configuration.
Instead of using your own computer resources, you can use a Cloud PC that relies more on internet resources. What does this mean? It means that your desktop, documents, music, movies, and operating system files are hosted on a cloud server, not on your computer. In other words, you are not using your own resources. In this case, the most important thing you need to have is an internet connection. Also, if you have a mobile, tablet, laptop, or PC, you can access your Microsoft operating system from anywhere at any time!
The main goal of Cloud PC is to solve computer resource problems and offer users a virtual desktop that will be accessible through a web browser, mobile and tablet applications, or another computer. However, this technology brings many other advantages to people who run businesses:
You will save a lot of money that you will probably spend on investing in a new computer infrastructure in your company. So instead of using in-house infrastructure, you should consider using cloud platforms. Microsoft Cloud PC would be great for both employees and employers. Employees could switch from one device to another, while employers would significantly reduce their costs.
Cloud systems make communication much easier because all communication goes through one file location. Therefore, colleagues, customers, managers, accountants, external partners can work in the same place which is available on their devices. Video meetings, financial reports, and messages could be easily shared through this system. As you can see, communication is very easy and efficient!
Cloud services like Microsoft Cloud PC will probably have the power to improve customer experience significantly! All the money your company saves by implementing a cloud system can use for developing other fields. So instead of managing your own IT resources, you will pay more attention to customers’ needs.
Data security is one of the most important things in business. Cloud systems are not an exception. Every cloud provider keeps your data safe. Therefore, before logging into a cloud system, a user has to be authorized. This encryption is very robust, so you don’t need to be afraid when it comes to migrating your business to a cloud.
You don’t need to spend your money on IT technicians to fix problems on each computer in your company. Instead, a cloud provider takes this responsibility and once the system is patched, every employee will be able to use it. So you don’t need to waste your money, time, and energy to think about system vulnerabilities.
Mobility and Flexibility
Last but not least, more mobility and flexibility for your employees. Whether they want to work at home, in the garden, in the coffee shop, or somewhere else, thanks to this technology, they can choose any location. In these modern times, mobility has become an important factor and every employer should follow this trend.
