Microsoft Power Automate Introduced 2 New Hosted RPA Scenarios for Developers

Stephen Siciliano, VP (Power Automate) at Microsoft, recently announced that Microsoft Power Automate now supports two hosted RPA scenarios, providing developers and Center of Excellence admins a simple way to set up and scale automations:

  1. Individual hosted machines, now available in preview, enable developers to build or test automation and business users to run automation.
  2. Hosted machine groups are generally available and automatically scale workloads to optimize unattended automation in production, delivering improved business process continuity and governance at scale.

Setting up RPA infrastructure manually is time-consuming. It can take days to get machines for automation—from the initial machine request and creation to installation and assignment. Power Automate delivers a consistent setup experience and license for both individual hosted machines and hosted machine groups, making it faster and easier to set up and manage RPA for your organization. Instead of doing all the heavy lifting yourself, anyone with just a few basic parameters can build, test, and run large-scale automation in minutes. Just give it a name, select the base image and account to be used, and you’re all set!

For many automation scenarios, a single machine is sufficient to support a broad range of business processes. Individual hosted machines give developers a quick and simple way to build, test, and run desktop flows without providing or setting up any physical machines. When testing is complete, the desktop flow can be deployed on a single machine to support individual business users running in both attended and unattended mode. For unattended scenarios that are more robust, you can start by building the desktop flow on a hosted machine. Then, it can be assigned to a machine group that distributes and scales the automation workload based on demand.
