Yavapai College's remote computer environment
Cloud.yc.edu allows off-campus access to computing resources through a Windows 7 desktop that contains all of the software that is in the YC general computer labs. It's just like you're sitting at a computer on campus, even though you're not!
The best thing about using Cloud.yc.edu is that students, faculty, and staff can access ALL of the lab computers applications from off-campus 24 x 7.
In order to connect from most any computer with an internet connect to a YC desktop machine, it only takes a few moments by using the "VMware View" program. Once you download and install this program you will be able to access applications and programs on the Yavapai College computer network. You'll have the ability to connect to different "pools" of virtual machines based on your permissions from nearly any internet connected computer.
To access the Cloud.yc.edu virtual desktop system, you will need administrative access to the machine you intend to connect from.
