The Virtualized Desktop Computer Lab was proposed in 2011 and awarded CEF funding in spring 2012. The project focuses on virtualizing one computer lab in the Business School's Kalkin building at UVM as a pilot to build the required infrastructure, administrative processes, and to create a demonstrable configuration to show other units on campus.
