We offer two platforms for virtual computing, GC Virtual Apps and Thundercloud. Both platforms offer students, faculty and staff access to GC software and resources while off campus or on- the-go using a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Internet Explorer is the preferred browser.
GC Virtual Apps offers students, faculty and staff a light weight avenue to access many applications using most any Internet browser. Apple users will be able to access these Windows applications through a free Microsoft Remote App in the iTunes store.
Window access to GC Virtual Apps is available through Unify. Simply login to Unify and select the GC Virtual Apps tab.
Thundercloud offers a complete Windows computer as a virtual machine with access to many of the core applications used around campus along with access for resources that require special configuration on the host computer. Thundercloud access is available in two formats: Client Instructions or HTML Instructions. (pdf)
