Virtual Desktop



Overview:

A virtual desktop is a Windows 7 desktop in a virtualized environment.  The virtualized desktop is stored on Faculty servers rather than locally.  Desktop virtualization software separates the physical machine from the software and presents an isolated operating system for users.

Virtual desktops can be accessed from any location and any device.  For example, accessing a virtual desktop from home on an iPad.
