What is the Online Archive? The Online Archive is your personal email archive. Use it to store historical email by moving or copying messages from your primary mailbox to your archive mailbox. The archived messages reside in the cloud, and you can access them from any computer using Outlook or Outlook Web App (OWA). Your Online Archive is labeled “Archive - YOURNAME@ucop.edu.”YOURNAME@ucop.edu Everyone receives 20GB of storage for their Online Archive. If your Personal Folders (PST) are greater than 20 GB, you should review your folders and delete files you no longer need before moving them into the Online Archive.

What about using my home computer? Same process Access mycloud.ucop.edu Launch Cloud Applications or Cloud Desktop
What about Tablets? Can use Apple, Android & Windows Tablets Go to iTunes, Google Play or Windows App store Search & Install the free Citrix Receiver Configure connection
But I’m using a Mac Keep using it! Can launch non-native applications like Outlook, Project and Visio through Cloud Applications
Are you taking away my laptop/desktop? Not unless your hardware is experiencing problems or is out of warranty Some computers will be replaced with “thin client” devices We will be upgrading Windows XP Machines to Windows 7
What’s a thin client? A thin client is a computer that depends heavily on some other computer (its server) to fulfill its computational roles. It has no hard drive. Cost-wise, the price per seat of a thin client deployment has dropped to the point where it is more cost-effective than regular PCs.
Devices & Software Your job function and the way you work will determine the exact configuration of your computing environment, as well as which type of UC owned device you receive.
But we use Macs! The same exception process will remain in place for departments and users who use Macs.
Do I have to use Cloud Computing? It depends… Use what makes sense for your situation If local device has a natively available application, use it… (MS Office, Fuze, Outlook,Email, Browser-based) If you’re using a thin client… Yes.
