VMWare Horizon View
Since July of 2014, ITSC is adopting VMWare Horizon View as our new Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). The new solution improves the old one on the followings:
- Shorter login time
- Smoother and faster connections
- Access via multiple platforms and devices such as Mac OS X, Apple iOS and Android, in addition to Windows.
This VDI now provides 3 desktop pools of software for different computing purposes such as academic, CAD/CAM/graphics and programming software. Your personal documents are shared in all pools for easy access. For access, visit the Installation Guide and User Guide to install the client software.
Note that the old all-in-one desktop pool “Virtual Barn Desktops (2013 Spring)” will be de-commissioned by the end of August, 2014 and your personal data cannot be accessed since then. Please migrate the data to the new desktop pools if necessary.
