If you’re an iOS user, it’s time to make a connection to the Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) go App!
The app allows university iOS users (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) one more way to access the VCL, NC State’s cloud computing system that provides 24×7 remote access to high-end lab computers and software. Available in the Apple App Store, the app has been downloaded more than 1,300 times since its release earlier this year.
The idea to develop the iOS application for interaction with the VCL was sparked in a cloud computing class in NC State’s Department of Computer Science in the spring of 2012. The students eventually released the project to OIT Shared Services to get the application ready for production. You can download the VCL go app from the Apple App Store.
