Google has announced that ChromeOS Flex is now ready for deployment.

Chrome OS Flex is a new operating system from Google that's built for businesses and schools. It provides a simple way for customers to modernize their fleet of older Macs and PCs. So far over 295 devices have been certified for use with Chrome OS Flex.

Today, we’re excited to announce that ChromeOS Flex, the cloud-first, easy-to-manage, and fast operating system for PCs and Macs, is now ready for your fleet. Just like too much sun, software bloat, clunky hardware, and security vulnerabilities can cause unwanted damage. Thankfully, ChromeOS Flex is just the sunscreen your legacy devices need. And thanks to everyone who has participated in our early access program, we’ve been able to significantly improve the product in many areas while continuously certifying devices to run ChromeOS Flex.

As an example, Google says employees across 200 Nordic Choice hotels in Scandinavia were able to convert 2,000 computers to ChromeOS Flex in under 48 hours to recover from a ransomeware attack.

When a ransomware attack shut down operations, Nordic Choice Hotels chose ChromeOS Flex to quickly replace the OS on compromised devices and get them back online. ChromeOS Flex enabled Nordic Choice Hotels to turn a disaster into an upgrade. With a one-page guide and a USB drive, employees across 200 Nordic Choice hotels in Scandinavia were able to convert 2,000 computers in under 48 hours, protecting their business from a costly shutdown. And by switching to ChromeOS Flex, Nordic Choice Hotels will save up to 1.5 million kilos of CO2 over the next eight years - the equivalent of what 2,000 acres of mature forest would save. It may have taken only a few days to save their business, but the positive environmental effects of ChromeOS Flex will last for years to come.

You can test out ChromeOS Flex using a USB key before choosing to deploy. More details at the link below...
