BUanywhere

IT is pleased to offer BUanywhere (also known as VDI) as a computing option for faculty and staff. BUanywhere is a Windows 7 based computer that is housed in the Butler data center and is accessible from a multitude of devices. Your computing experience will be similar to the experience of using a computer that sits on your desk. The real power of BUanywhere comes when you are not at your desk, whether on campus or off. Access all your files and applications securely and without the commute!

BUanywhere is available to faculty and staff in two forms: as a personal virtual computer (My BUanywhere), or as a generic virtual computer (Work from Anywhere) which doesn't save any information on the desktop once logged off (much like a lab computer). The My BUanywhere computer is a personally assigned computer, so you are the only person that can access it and it retains your settings and preferences. Work From Anywhere allows you to utilize a Windows 7 based computer housed in the Butler data center, you can access the Butler network and BUfiles from a multitude of devices. Your computing experience will be similar to the experience of using a computer that sits on your desk; however, your desktop will not carry over from your device. IT recommends storing all files on BUfiles for ease of access with Work from Anywhere.
