The UVa Hive
Virtualized Access to Specialized Software from Anywhere
Because Hive MATLAB usage has far exceeded expectations, UVa has agreed to fund licenses for students to download MATLAB onto their personal computers for the current academic year (2012-2013) only.
The UVa Hive: Virtual Access to Specialized Software
ITS provides the UVa community with a way to access specialized software programs on the Hive from virtually anywhere, via the Internet.
The Hive uses a technology called VMware to deliver the software you need to use, on your own computer, in your dorm room, apartment, or library, for free! See instructions to get connected to the Hive.
What the Hive Does for You
- The Hive saves you money (fewer expensive software licenses to purchase); and
- The Hive saves you time (no need to wait to use a public computer just to access a particular application).
