Hello everyone!

Just started to learn Microsoft cloud platform (most interest in Office 365 products), but on some Microsoft resources i found name "Microsoft 365", are this names means the same? Or there is difference between this two? Can't found any clear description.

Hi @aero2466

There is a difference between Office 365 and Microsoft 365. Office 365 is a set of cloud based business applications like Exchange, Office Apps, SharePoint, OneDrive. It is a part of Microsoft 365. Microsoft 365 is Office 365 with Windows 10 (OS) and the Enterprise Mobility Suite (Suite of Security and Management apps).

Lots of information on this in articles online including
