Before using Apps and Desktops through AppsToGo to complete coursework, be sure you understand the following considerations to successfully use Apps for assignment completion.
Assignments that require CPU/GPU run times that are greater 60 minutes should not be completed through AppsToGo. Batch queuing is not supported.
Application licenses are on a first-come, first-served basis. Most Apps have restrictions on how many users can be accessing the app at the same time. For that reason, there is a possibility of apps being unavailable during peak work times.
In general, AppsToGo behaves like a public computer in a lab. Changes to apps and desktops are not saved and any documents that are created are not kept after logging off.
AppsToGo Availability Considerations
AppsToGo is available 24/7 except for during the routine maintenance period -- every Sunday from 2am - 5am.
AppsToGo is rebooted during the routine maintenance period. If you are using AppsToGo during this time, you will receive a message asking you to save your work and log off. Please do so because any work that is unsaved will be lost when AppsToGo reboots.
