VDI

Implement a virtual desktop and application enviornment using the VMware Horizon platform. This system will initially serve as the sole VDI for UNL and ITS ES, with the eventual goal of rolling UNO's VDI in. UNK currently does not have VDI implemented, but this system will be offered to them as well. Virtual desktops and applications are used by students, faculty and staff to access desktops and applications from anywhere, on any device, at any time.
