The UConn vPC: A Collaborative Story about Desktop Virtualization
The UConn vPC is a collaborative IT project between the UConn School of Business, the School of Engineering, and the University Libraries. This project delivered virtual desktops to UConn students beginning the fall semester of 2011. Students now have access to UConn-licensed applications from their PCs, Macs, and mobile devices from anywhere in the world where they have Internet access. This session will discuss both the technology behind the service and the collaboration between the academic units that built a scalable, centralized service. An overview of the service can be found at http://vpc.uconn.edu.
