Virtualization at the U of A

The University of Arkansas is constantly improving facilities and access through virtualization. Remote Lab is part of an initiative to provide a comprehensive mobile experience that allows students, faculty and staff to access their desktops from anywhere using any device. That's the power of virtual desktops, and it's on the horizon here at the University of Arkansas.
