Microsoft’s new take on desktop-as-a-service is more than just a cloud-based version of Windows
Microsoft 365 is the productivity cloud designed to help you pursue your passion and run your business. More than just apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft 365 brings together best-in-class productivity apps with powerful cloud services, device management, and advanced security in one, connected experience.
At its simplest, it’s a virtualization service that provides a Windows desktop and first- and third-party applications to users with both PC and non-PC hardware.
It’s also the latest incarnation of the thin computing model, which harks to the beginnings of digital computing when the computer was massive and cost multi-millions — and endpoints were unintelligent terminals. Like that model, Windows 365 runs the virtual desktop on servers at a distance; the data is transferred over the Internet rather than an organization’s network.
