Microsoft has rolled out a new service for the business to deploy new Windows 10 devices on its Azure cloud.
The service is called IT network solutions, and it allows users to set up a Windows 10 PC, Mac or Linux desktop or server, with or without a dedicated network.
The feature is being rolled out to Azure customers at a price of $20 per month for 10 devices and $50 per month to 40 devices.
The feature was available on all existing Microsoft devices, but Azure is the only cloud provider to offer it at a discounted price.
“It is great to see Microsoft’s cloud offering offering Microsoft cloud services as a service, enabling IT admins to deploy, manage and scale Windows 10 deployments in a way that is best suited for their businesses,” said Steve Pyle, senior vice president, Azure.
“We’re pleased to have been able to partner with Microsoft on this new service, which we believe will help IT administrators make the most of Azure.”
Microsoft also announced that it has made the switch to Azure’s Azure Cloud Platform, which is now the only option for Azure customers who want to run Windows 10 on their devices.
Microsoft said that the switch will enable IT admins “to focus on delivering cloud-based solutions that deliver consistent and scalable solutions to the enterprise.”
Microsoft Azure is currently offering 10-device licenses at a flat $20/month price, with 10 devices able to run the latest version of Windows 10.
Microsoft is offering 10GB of free Azure cloud storage for every Windows 10 device it has sold, which will be used for cloud-hosting and data analytics.
Microsoft has not yet announced pricing for the 10GB storage.
Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform also offers support for enterprise IT solutions and is now able to host multiple Azure virtual machines and the Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine Manager.
Microsoft also announced plans to expand its Azure subscription offering to include a variety of enterprise-grade cloud services, such as Office 365, Exchange Online, and Dynamics CRM.
Microsoft Azure has a free tier for new users and a pro tier for existing customers.
The Microsoft Azure Pro tier includes Office 365 and Exchange Online subscriptions, and includes a free subscription to Office 365 for new customers.
Microsoft Office 365 customers can also sign up for a one-year subscription to Exchange Online.
