Pretty neat, right?
Microsoft 365 Cloud PC pricing starts at $20 a month
If you want to benefit from these services, you will have to pay a monthly fee, which starts at a mere $20 a month.
The big twist here is that this service is focused on businesses and enterprise customers, so if you are thinking that just anyone can snatch up a Windows 365 plan whenever they need Windows for a short stint on a non-native device, you are mistaken.
So, with all this knowledge in your pocket, if you are planning to purchase this service, and start at the bare minimum end of the spectrum, you can get 1vCPU, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and 12GB of outbound data for $20 per user per month.
Furthermore, taking advantage of the Cloud PC requires you to have the Windows Hybrid Benefit, because, without it, the minimum monthly buy-in is $24.
All the way at the other end of the pricing spectrum is the 8vCPU, 32GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, 70GB of outbound data option for $162 per user per month, or $158 if you have Windows Hybrid Benefit.
In between these mentioned echelons are a wide variety of different configs to suit your business’s specific needs.
You can even save some money each month by cranking down the gigabyte count of RAM and storage.
Just check out Microsoft’s website for a full rundown of all the different pricing options currently available to business and enterprise customers.
It is also not a hard to set up service so don’t be discouraged that you won’t be able to work your way around it if you aren’t highly technical.
So, if you are mostly on the go and you decided that you would want such features for yourself and the business you run, the possibilities are sky-high, literally.
