Indeed, this concept has been associated with several definitions. Sometimes associated with a new operating system in the cloud. Others to a mode of a Windows 10 always connected. It has even been called a false rumor. However, the term is real, and we have known some news. This is thanks to the leaks and advances. In short, it’s a new virtualization experience in the cloud. Today we will talk a little more about Windows 10 Cloud PC, the new service from Microsoft.
A Windows 10 only for administrators.
Windows 10 Cloud PC will allow an administrator to have full access to Windows 10. Therefore, you would not have to download or install anything. In addition, the administrator would have access to all computers on the network, from anywhere. So he could provide support and even take care of updates and upgrades. Furthermore, this service is not intended to replace Windows 10 and Windows Server. On the contrary, it aims to improve them.
Another accurate definition is that it is an improved version of the current Windows Virtual Desktop. In addition, this new virtual PC in the cloud runs inside Azure. It is well known that the main function is to offer users a desktop as a service. And its main advantage is to be able to control and manage any system infrastructure. Currently, Microsoft intends to offer administrators 3 virtual systems in the Cloud PC:

Heavy: 2 vCPUs, 8 GB RAM and 96 GB SSD
Advanced: 3 vCPUs, 8 GB RAM and 40 GB SSD.
These systems can be opened from any web browser. It can even be accessed from a remote desktop. Using Windows, macOS, Android and iOS apps.
Cloud PC will be part of Windows 10X.
Windows 10 Cloud PC is going to be focused mainly for companies. However, this does not mean that it will be of exclusive use to them. Moreover, it is very likely that it is part of the common user. Since it is planned to be part of Windows 10X. The main limitation of Windows 10X is the inability to run Win32 applications. Recently, Microsoft introduced the Cloud PC APIs into the Microsoft Graph API. Consequently, the new tablet operating system could run 32- and 64-bit Win32 applications through the Cloud PC. At the moment, this new service from Microsoft is only in the beta phase. Well, this is all we know about Windows 10 Cloud PC, the new service from Microsoft.
