The practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine running on a centralized server. VDI is a variation on the client/server-computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing. VDI allows users to access desktops and applications from any location on almost any device utilizing our central core infrastructure. The virtual computing labs will be accessible by two methods, an installed client on the end-user device or a web-based internet browser connection.

Virtual labs using VMWare Horizon View provide remote-desktop capabilities to users using VMware’s virtualization technology. A client desktop operating-system, typically Microsoft Windows version 7 or higher, runs within a virtual environment on a server.

The New College Office of Information Technology supports multiple computer labs on campus. In addition to shared teaching labs, there are concentration specific labs supported by college divisions and labs supported by the New College Student Association (NCSA).

The virtual labs are accessible on most devices and from any location on campus that has internet access. These labs are populated with the licensed applications that reside on the physical computing labs.  Virtual labs enable students and faculty members to use the licensed applications outside of the physical computer labs and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
