CSUEB Bay Cloud

Why BayCloud?

BayCloud is VMware Horizon View. This virtual desktop service is provided to students in order to access virtual desktops with software designed for students. A client program can be installed or you can use the HTML5 enabled browser to access your desktop. Give your students access to the software you use to support your curriculum in any computer lab or home use. No need to rely on a campus lab. BayCloud enables students to access software from anywhere—from any campus computer, their dorm rooms, home, or while travelling. An internet connection and acceptable browser or VMware view client program is all that is required.
