This Monday (2), Microsoft made available access to its newest service, the “PC in the Cloud”, part of Windows 365. Naturally, the launch also revealed its price range, which will vary according to the number of cores , RAM memory and storage desired.
Available in two versions, the service seeks to offer features that serve a specific group of users. The first option, Business, is geared towards “Small and Medium Business” and supports up to 300 users.
Monthly subscription plans start at R$200 per user for virtual systems with 2 vCPUs, 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage. The most robust version of the plan Business offers 4 vCPUs, 16GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $399.90 per user.
With similar prices, the option Enterprise is geared towards large companies. Its main differential is the connection to Microsoft Endpoint Manager, which offers greater security against threats, in addition to offering support for an unlimited number of users.
Its price range for Brazil starts at R$177.10 per user/month and can reach up to R$377.10 per user/month for the most robust configurations — identical to the version Business.
