App Virtualization (AppStream)

This service is available for faculty, staff, and students.

Select desktop applications can be streamed online through a process called application virtualization. ITS leverages Amazon AppStream to manage the resources required behind the scenes to host and run your applications, to scale access automatically, and to provide access to your students/designees on demand. AppStream provides users access to the applications they need on the device of their choice, with a responsive, fluid user experience.

AppStream can also provide a full desktop environment to users through a web browser, which allows for departments to provide a virtual computer lab to their students.

Getting Started

Faculty and staff who wish to offer applications through AppStream can use the "Request Service" button to start the process.

As requests are received, we first verify that existing software licensing permits use of the application in AppStream. If so, applications are built so that requestors can test them before making them accessible to end-users.

If after testing it is determined by the faculty member that the solution will meet the needs of the course, the environment is deployed to production and made available to students.

Our request service form will allow you to report a problem or submit a request.
