What is Myriad?

The Myriad service is based upon Windows XP workstations and works in a very different way to WTS (Windows Terminal Services).

On Myriad, the available software runs locally and you are not sharing the computer with any other users, which gives enhanced performance.

On WTS you are connected to a remote server where all your software is running. Though the servers are very powerful you are sharing the server with other users so the performance for certain types of software is not as good as if the software was running on the local computer.

Myriad is available in most student computer workrooms.
