Desktop Computing is primarily focused on the Desktop Computing FSE Computer Standards. These are the computer standards that ASU has issued to make Research Computing easier and to provide Faculty/Students the information to research safely and to make sure that they have the correct equipment. Other topics that fall under Desktop Computing is the ability to Remote Desktop into a ASU owned device. Links will be provided below for more information on Desktop Computing Standards and a How-To guide on setting up Remote Desktop capabilities.

ASU Cloud Services
Cloud Service is is anything that is made available to user’s on demand via the internet from a cloud computing providers servers that is not being provided from a companies own on-premises servers. ASU provides three different types of cloud services. AWS, Azure, and Google Compute Platform (GCP). If you want more information about these three services and comparisons between them, you can follow the link below.

Engineering Technical Services (ETS) offers a cost-effective and reliable Virtual Machines (VM) based on the VMware vSphere Virtual Infrastructure suite. Server-on-Demand is intended to serve departments and research units for the Fulton Schools of Engineering (FSE) with the benefits of server virtualization, including improved server reliability and availability, easier web-based VM administration, lower total operational cost, and a smaller carbon footprint through more efficient utilization of physical servers.
