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.

How much data does Google slurp?

When you run a device with ChromeOS?

If there is more than 0 bytes sent to the Chocolate Factory then sorry, I'm out.

I could rant on about security but I'd expect most people who read this forum get that already.

Exactly the question that pops into my mind every time I hear about how Chromebooks are great for business. Precisely how much of your confidential information is being silently harvested?

Do you have any idea how many businesses are already running Google Docs?

I mean, if you already have Docs, what more info could the OS level data possibly provide?

Not more then they slurp up from Android users?

That's the thing about ChromeOS. It's so tied to Google it's useless without it, but on the flipside, Google is one of the few out there with the services to provide such a thing.

I'd love for a slim Linux or BSD that could integrate with my own servers, but there are still a lot of crucial things missing on the server side.
