Windows 365

Deploy and manage Windows 365 Cloud PCs quickly, easily, and cost-effectively with Nerdio Manager.

What is Windows 365?

Windows 365 is a Microsoft 365 powered desktop virtualization service. It offers organizations a fixed-price monthly subscription to a Cloud PC that is dedicated to a user and can be managed using the exact same tools as a traditional Windows PC. Cloud PC is available at a flat per-user price, whereas Azure Virtual Desktop (previously called Windows Virtual Desktop, or WVD) is based on Azure consumption.

Cloud PCs securely stream desktop apps, settings, and content from the Microsoft cloud to users’ devices to provide a personalized Windows experience. With cloud PCs, Windows evolves from a device-based operating system to hybrid personalized computing.

 

Available Anywhere

Windows 365 and Nerdio Manager allows all users to be productive from anywhere, on
any device with a cloud-powered, secure, and always up to date Windows experience. It also seamlessly allows
MSPs and IT professionals to instantly provision Cloud PCs and manage physical and virtual devices through a
unified portal and a fixed and predictable price.

Deploy, Manage, Optimize

Nerdio Manager makes Windows 365 deployment faster, management easier, allows for
cost-efficiency, and offers more flexibility than using native Windows 365 management tools. Nerdio Manager
fully supports Windows 365 for Enterprise IT Professionals and the MSP community. It is a single platform
that helps admins and MSPs manage multiple virtual environments in a seamless, integrated flow. It does this
by managing and automating several Azure technologies, including identity, virtual machines, file storage,
networking, and backup, which in turn helps with quick and easy deployment (as little as 10 minutes),
management, and optimization.

How it Works

Nerdio Manager is an Azure managed application deployed from the Azure Marketplace
into your own Azure tenant, and can, connect to customers’ tenants if needed. Nerdio Manager deploys and
manages Cloud PCs, applications and images, servers, networking, and identity (such as Azure Active
Directory) across multiple environments, if applicable.
