Computer labs in the cloud: Virtualizing software access for higher education

A Cloud First Projects Webinar

The past year taught us the importance of being flexible in higher education, especially with remote teaching and learning. Many institutions made the shift from on-premises computer labs to delivering compute and graphics-intensive programs to students through streamed applications. Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a platform that allows you to centrally manage desktop applications—from Adobe Creative Suite to AutoCAD to SolidWorks and others—and deliver them to any computer, no matter the operating system nor location. By transitioning to computer labs as a service, your institution can simplify anytime, anywhere, any-device student access and reclaim valuable campus space from expensive computer labs.

Length: 30 minutes

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
• Enabling and scaling student access to complex applications through cloud streaming
• Providing application-specific streaming and full virtual desktops via the cloud
• Reclaiming your institution’s spaces by converting computer labs to virtual

Who Should Attend:
Higher education IT practitioners, computer lab managers, deans and department heads whose students rely on computer labs, and others seeking to understand application streaming and cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
