IT to implement virtual desktops in library basement labs
During the spring 2015 semester, the Texas Wesleyan Office of Information Technology will be implementing virtual desktops in labs B-25 and B-26 in the basement of the library.
Virtual desktops, or VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure), allow laptops and desktops to connect to a virtual desktop computer running on a server in the Texas Wesleyan Data Center. This allows IT staff to more efficiently respond to necessary changes required in labs such as new software requests by faculty and staff.
VDI technology also offloads computing processes to the server infrastructure, which allow the university to increase the lifespan of older desktops and laptops. The user experience will be very similar to using traditional desktops with the benefits of increased performance.
The implementation of virtual desktops this spring is considered a pilot implementation and if successful will likely expand to other areas of the campus.
