Here, we attempt to compile an (almost) exhaustible list of every reason why certain industries and firms choose to onboard a Windows Cloud PC, to help you decide how best you can use this in your arsenal to meet your firm's IT goals.

To begin with, a few refreshers.

What is Windows Cloud PC?

Windows Cloud PCs allow you to stream a Windows 10/11 or a Windows Server OS on your virtual machine from your cloud server.

Consider you have a Chromebook, Mac or a Linux based device, and you need to run a windows specific application, cloud PCs give you a quickly accessible, and secure space to experiment, ideate, and more by providing you the resources in the place of local hardware machines.

Platforms like Windows 365, and Neverinstall allows you to access a windows virtual machine in a matter of minutes, and provide top notch performances even at low internet speeds (~10 mbps).

Switch Operating Systems from your Browser

What is Virtualisation?

Virtualisation is a technology that allows you to create multiple simulated environments or dedicated resources from a single, physical hardware system. Windows Cloud PC leverages this technology powered by Microsoft Azure.

Unlike traditional PCs, where the operating system and applications run directly on the physical hardware of the machine, a Windows Cloud PC abstracts the hardware dependencies and provides a fully functional Windows desktop experience through the cloud.

Why Would You Run Windows In The Cloud?

Most firms and individuals choose their windows cloud PC for the same reasons, the familiar interface, uniformity in applications & file formats, the security and compliance features that often come baked in with Microsoft products.

For instance, when you run Neverinstall Windows, at peak specifications, through your browser, you can get started in a mere 2 minutes. With no extensive set ups, intuitive controls and more, you get a full fledged PC with a native-feel low-latency performance, right on demand.
