Introducing vSmith, the new virtual application delivery platform
The Office of Smith IT is pleased and excited to announce the official launch of vSmith after piloting for several months among various sections of our community.
Here are some other platform improvements:
- vSmith can accommodate many more users at once.
- More resources are dedicated to each session to provide an even better user experience than SmithApps.
- Integration of TerpDrives allows you to save your work directly to Google (Smoogle) Drive, your UMD Box account, Dropbox, or Skydrive accounts, as well as your individual Smith K:\ drive and departmental O:\ drive.
To get started, visit the Workspace portal at workspace.rhsmith.umd.edu, sign in with your University Directory ID and select the application or desktop that you would like to try. When you are prompted to install the VMware Horizon View application (for Mac or PC), accepting all the defaults. If you do not install the client when prompted, you can later find download links and instructions here.
