“Virtual” Computing and Online Testing Sites
LIB225 use Zero Clients at each work station to interface with a virtual desktop infrastructure. In other words they are not full PC computer workstations. (see definitions below) Common applications run fine in this environment. There are some online testing sites that will not run properly and may require additional work to be done to successfully run the online testing software. If you are scheduling a computer lab for an online test please contact CETS in advance to ensure your testing experience is a success.
What is a “Zero Client”?
A typical zero client product is a small box that serves to connect a keyboard, mouse, monitor and Ethernet connection to a remote server. The server, which hosts the client’s operating system (OS) and software applications. Zero clients are often used in a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment.
What is a “Virtual Desktop Infrastructure” (VDI)
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine (VM) running on a centralized server. VDI is a variation on the client/server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing.
