Microsoft announced that Windows 365 for FedRAMP is now available for GCC customers in the Azure commercial cloud. Customers can now leverage the Windows 365 solution that is best suited to frontline and shift workers.

With Windows 365 Frontline for FedRAMP, instead of purchasing a license for every shift worker, you need to only purchase enough licenses for the number of active employees at any given time. For example, if you have nine employees but only three of them work at the same time, you only need three licenses to meet the needs of all nine employees. IT admins can immediately deploy up to three Cloud PCs per purchased license within the Windows 365 provisioning experience using Microsoft Intune.

As employees sign in, the Cloud PC powers on, and a license is used for the duration of their work. When they sign off, the shared license is returned to the pool of shared licenses, and their Cloud PC is powered off. Any of the users within a defined group can access their Cloud PC without requiring a set schedule. This model empowers organizations to extend access to Cloud PCs to employees who may not have had such opportunities in the past and makes it a great solution for employees on a shift schedule—including customer representatives in call centers, help desk workers, and reception staff across many different verticals.

Irenaus Becker discusses the various components that are used to optimize Teams and refers to remediation scripts to keep the WebRTC component up-to-date.
