Following a limited preview that Microsoft kicked off at Computex earlier this year, Microsoft has launched Windows 10 IoT Core Services into public preview. The service, which is available with varying paid tiers, is intended to help Microsoft partner companies deploy and commercialize devices built on Windows 10 IoT Core with long-term support and security.
Windows 10 IoT Core Services focuses on three key areas. The first is long-term servicing, which guarantees 10 years of support to keep devices up-to-date with the latest security fixes. The offering also bundles in the Device Update Center, which gives companies more control over how they create, customize, and distribute updates. Finally, the included Device Health Attestation service offers a cloud-based solution for assessing device health and can be integrated with device management services.
As for pricing, Windows 10 IoT Core Services is available at a subscription price of $0.30 per device per month ($0.15 for the preview period). Alternatively, Cloud Solution Provider program members can resell the service to their customers as needed. OEMs can also license the service with a prepaid option for devices.
