Cloud Computing – Virtual Machines

Stern has a cloud computing environment that allows us to quickly provide you with a virtual machine for your research. Virtual machines are used exactly like your physical computer with added benefits.

Benefits:
❯ customize the amount of memory, disk space, number of processors, operating system, and software
❯ access from anywhere, i.e., your office, home or abroad
❯ collaborate with geographically distant colleagues
❯ quickly provisioned and configured
❯ computing resources without the financial overhead
❯ frees up your personal computer(s)

To connect to a virtual server from off-campus you must use the NYU ITS Virtual Private Network (VPN). Instructions to install and use the VPN can be found on the NYU Virtual Private Network page.
