Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

An interactive environment developed by NCI for data visualisation and analysis in the cloud. The VDI substantially simplifies complicated analysis workflows that span multiple NCI systems by bringing together key data collections, analysis software and compute systems in a familiar interface. You can work with the VDI as though on your own computer, without the need to wait on interactive queue jobs.

For more information, see NCI: Data Services.
