CloudReady turns almost any computer into a Chrome device
Whether you’re a business, a school, or a home user, CloudReady OS is the fast, easy way to convert your hardware to the security and manageability of Google's Chrome ecosystem.
It's an OS designed for now—and for what's next
Based on Google’s Chromium OS, the same open-source architecture as Chromebooks and Chrome OS, CloudReady provides unparalleled speed, simplicity, and security without hardware limitations, whether your computers are brand new or 10 years old.
That’s why companies, non-profits, schools, and government agencies around the world use CloudReady to streamline and secure their devices when accessing web apps and VDI
Transform old technology.
Tired of poor performance from your school's computers? You're not alone.
Over time, even the best hardware slows down. CloudReady changes that, replacing aging operating systems and heavy local apps with a fast, lightweight OS that won’t ever slow down. In the classroom, that means computers with faster boot times (so class can start on time), increased browsing speed (so teachers can get back to teaching and students can get back to learning), and greater reliability, with minimal disruption.
With CloudReady, classroom technology becomes an enabler—not a blocker.
Reduce IT time and effort.
In search of a way to minimize the time your IT team spends on device support and maintenance? CloudReady brings an end to:
- Device re-imaging
- Time spent updating computers
- Worrying about security vulnerabilities due to outdated or unpatched Windows or Mac OS systems
CloudReady is built to be incredibly secure, with the same technology and security foundation as Chromebooks. And just like Chromebooks, CloudReady devices update automatically and seamlessly in the background, so students and teachers can keep working.
Best of all, that shared architecture means it's as secure and easy to use your CloudReady devices for state testing as Chromebooks. Simply use the Google Admin console to put CloudReady computers into Kiosk mode, or configure Public Session mode, and launch testing sites or apps quickly and simply.
Simplify & unify device management
Eliminate device management complexity by converting PCs and Macs to CloudReady and managing your entire fleet together alongside your Chromebooks.
Pairing your CloudReady devices with Chrome Education licenses enables full administrator control and easy, secure device management via Google's cloud-based Admin console:
- Apply policies across all your devices at the touch of a button—like automatically applying wifi settings across all devices.
- Customize device settings so you can enable and disable specific apps, such as social media sites, according to grade or year groups to map to school policies.
- Quickly establish an exam mode to lock down devices to specific sites or apps.
