CloudPC is a virtual way of accessing one or more applications from computers that do not have the software locally installed. Instead of installing the software yourself, CloudPC allows you to connect to a remote server at Drew and open one of the listed applications. The software then runs on the server but is presented to you as if it were running on your local computer. This enables you to access certain pieces of software from anywhere, and works the same both on and off campus. Even if you are off campus, where the software you run normally couldn't access things such as network drives, CloudPC applications are running on a campus server. This means the software CAN access network drives and the like.
You can access CloudPC using an application called the "vWorkspace Client", which you install locally on your computer. It is a very lightweight piece of software that can be installed on either Windows or Macintosh operating systems.
Instructions for the installation and use of CloudPC are provided here:
