Surface-as-a-Service

Bring your business into the modern workplace with Microsoft Surface devices, Office 365, Windows 10, EM+S and support from Cloudserve in one package.

The workplace is transforming — from changing employee expectations, to more diverse and globally distributed teams, to an increasingly complex threat landscape. To help organisations thrive in this modern workplace, Cloudserve is proud to present our Surface-as-a-Surface offering.

Using Cloudserve’s Surface-as-a-Service solution, new devices can be shipped directly to your end-users and will be automatically enrolled and configured when the units are un-boxed and turned on for the first time using Windows Autopilot. This process can eliminate need to re-image your devices as part of your deployment process, cuts down on shipping costs, reduces the work required by deployment staff and opens up new, agile methods for device management and distribution.

Windows Autopilot is a cloud-based deployment technology available in Windows 10. Using Windows Autopilot, Cloudserve can remotely deploy and configure devices in a truly zero-touch process right out of the box. Windows Autopilot registered devices are identified over the internet at first boot using a unique device signature, known as the hardware hash, and automatically enrolled and configured using modern management solutions such as Azure Active Directory (AAD) and Mobile Device Management (MDM).

Benefits of Surface-as-a-Service

Traditionally, IT pros spend a lot of time building and customising images that will later be deployed to devices. Cloudserve's Surface-as-a-Service introduces a new approach.

From the user's perspective, when a new device arrives to them, Windows Autopilot only takes a few simple operations to make their device ready to use.

From the IT pro's perspective, the only interaction required from the end user is to connect to a network and to verify their credentials. Everything beyond that is automated and fully supported by Cloudserve.

Windows Autopilot Functionality

Once deployed, Windows 10 devices are managed using tools such as Microsoft Intune, Windows Update for Business, System Center Configuration Manager, and other similar programs. Windows Autopilot can also be used to re-purpose a device by leveraging Windows Autopilot Reset to quickly prepare a device for a new user, or in break/fix scenarios to enable a device to quickly be brought back to a business-ready state.

Not ready for Microsoft Surface?

Whilst Microsoft Surface with Windows 10 offers the latest features, we understand that Microsoft Surface isn’t the hardware choice for every organisation.

If you fall into this category, please get in touch and we'd be happy to discuss hardware options and requirements to suit all business types, sizes and budgets. Alternatively, our Cloud Desktop solution allows you to leverage your existing hardware alongside our cloud technology, granting it a new lease of life without the added cost.

Get Started with Surface-as-a-Service

Whether you're in need of a full hardware refresh, or simply wish to upgrade a group of specific users such as in-store retail or frequently travelling staff and want to make sure you are getting the most from your investment, the Cloudserve team are happy to help!
