Room:

Description:
During the Spring 2014 semester, the Morgan Library IT Staff worked with representatives from VMWare, Teradici, and Nvidia to conduct an intensive proof-of-concept to implement a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). A VDI centralizes computer resources by offloading computation to a back-room server, leaving a "thin client" station for users to interact with. Such a solution is intended to simplify desktop management, reduce cost, extend hardware lifespan, and increase application portability. This PDI will discuss the goals and results of our tests in these topics.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goals of this PDI are to: educate staff & faculty about VDI technology, describe the players and techniques used to test a VDI environment in the Library, and discuss the findings of the test and what impact it may have on future technology prospects in the Library.
