CloudReady is software aimed primarily at the educational sector, ie schools, in the United States. In this country, many schools and students have chosen Chrome OS, and CloudReady can facilitate this transition because it allows you to "recycle" existing hardware without buying new ones.


But CloudReady is now also interesting for those home users who want test Chrome OS without too many compromises. To take advantage of the possibility of dual boot, you need a system that has already installed Windows 7 (and later) in UEFI-Mode, as well as 32 GB of disk space. Full instructions, in English, are posted on the Neverware website.

This requirement means that not many computers are already compatible with CloudReady, as can be deduced from the list compiled by Neverware itself. However, more experienced users could try to do the operation on their PC, which would be a good opportunity to try Chrome OS and get curious. Indeed it is This can be done on any UEFI equipped system, but if Windows is installed in legacy mode, Microsoft's operating system will also need to be installed from scratch.


CloudReady is available in a free and a professional version, which includes the administration console. The license is paid based on the number of machines to be managed: $ 59 per machine for life, or $ 25 per year for each machine.
