VMware Horizon (VDI) From Home

New virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system allows students to access a virtual Windows desktop with most CCS software installed and with improved performance and better reliability. The VDI system works on- and off-campus, allowing students to use their personal device (Mac or Windows) to access the software that runs on powerful servers at CCS. Of course, students with appropriate devices may still run the software locally on their own computers as licensing allows, and software is still available in labs on-campus for in-person use.

As a part of a CCS Case Study, we have observed current CCS students using VDI to connect with the software and applications used to complete work in their respective programs. View student demonstrations for how to use the VDI system below.
