With faster networks and more capable cloud computing infrastructure, the paradigm of powerful machine on the desktop that can run multiple operating systems and locally stored applications, is being replaced by client-server based virtual computing environments where you can access powerful desktop tools and software from almost any device.

In this Technology Brown Bag with the assistance of David DeMizio from NCF Information Technology, we will look at Virtual Computing.  We will review different models of virtualization and focus on Virtual Computing here at New College, specifically looking at the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) “Lab” available now from on and off campus and implications of this technology on future lab space and student computing.
