Since we launched Chrome OS in 2009, our goal has been to build the simplest, fastest, and most secure operating system possible. And we've been inspired by all the ways we've seen businesses embrace Chrome, from Chromebooks in the office, to shared Chrome devices in the field, to signage and kiosks for customer engagement in retail. But with so many different business needs - not to mention so many different devices - companies have also told us they want a single, cost-effective solution that gives them the flexibility and control to keep their employees connected. That's why today we're announcing Chrome Enterprise.

Chrome Enterprise offers a host of features, including access to enterprise app storefronts,  deep security controls, 24/7 support, as well as integration with cloud and on-premise management tools, VMware Workspace ONE and Microsoft Active Directory.

Chrome OS keeps marching on.

i would be wary of someone selling you ChromeOS as the fix for all your problems.

Do you have heavy lifting apps like CAD, do you have various compliers and development work, do you game or do heavy media creation then ChromeOS is not for you.

Are you a knowledge worker who works with documents, spreadsheets, collaborates with others. Do you work in departments like HR were a lot of information is now stored in cloud service then ChromeOS could be for you.

For a while i can see companies if they wish to adopt this, going for a 70/30 adoption rate and slowly getting higher.

I have implemented G-Suite and ChromeOS and it works incredibly well, im a massive fan. However it was rolled out to users with standard requirements, the artists and designers using photoshop they stayed on Windows and continued using photoshop.

Factor in VDI with the heavy applications running on servers in a datacenter, and the ratio could go a lot higher.

Depending on the development work, SSH could be all that is needed.
