PrideDesktop uses virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) which is virtualization technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server in a data center. VDI is a variation on the client-server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing. The term was coined by VMware.

Several classrooms on campus feature VDI technology. If you'd like to know where, contact edtech@hofstra.edu

NEVER save your files to the virtual desktop. Files saved on the virtual desktop are deleted when you log out and can not be recovered. See other ways to save in PrideDesktop.

Employees that are also students


If you are an employee AND a student, please be aware of what domain you are logging in to. If you log into the employees domain (employees\h70xxxxxx) and save to the F: drive, you will need to log onto the employees domain again to get your data. If you log into the students domain (students\70xxxxxxx) and save to the F: drive, you will need to log into the students domain to get your data.
