RowanCloud enables students, faculty, and staff to access Rowan University owned software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and SPSS from any device, on or off campus, that is equipped with a high-speed internet connection.
The updated version of RowanCloud is based on Citrix XenApp. The original version of RowanCloud used VMware View. View will continue to be supported and available until the end of Fall 2012 semester.
Citrix XenApp differs from VMware View in that it presents applications versus virtual desktops. The primary advantage is that it better integrates with your device. With XenApp you interact with applications directly from your device versus a virtual desktop with applications with View.
In order to access RowanCloud with Citrix XenApp you need to install an application on your device named Citrix Receiver. It is available for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. You can download the Receiver by selecting the downloads link.
There are currently over 75 specialized applications available with RowanCloud.
