Terminal Server Family

A server-based computing solution for deploying Linux desktops and applications

NoMachine Enterprise Terminal Server

NoMachine Enterprise Terminal Server provides secure and reliable access to mission-critical, specialized Linux desktops from any operating system and device, letting you federate all your desktop nodes under a single server. Organizations can conveniently centralize access, management and monitoring whilst empowering their users to run high-end, graphic-intensive OpenGL-based X applications without performance degradation. Create pools of Linux desktop nodes (Terminal Server Nodes) and scale up access to users' virtual desktops by balancing the computing load among them. By adding Enterprise Terminal Servers to a Cloud Server hierarchy, sysadmin can centralize access to multiple NoMachine clusters.

With server fail-over protection included, NoMachine Enterprise Terminal Server provides the foundation for a highly available environment eliminating single points of failure. Create a highly-available active/passive cluster to ensure continuity of service to your users should there be a master server outage.

  • Host any number of virtual Linux desktops. Add Terminal Server Nodes for Linux as you need them
  • Point of entry for Linux desktop users from any device and serves as frontend for applications running on Windows Remote Desktop Services via RDP support
  • Seamless integration with corporate authentication mechanisms such as Kerberos, LDAP and Active Directory means fast and easy deployment to all your workforce
  • Protect apps and data in your own cloud. Leverage profiles and security controls to deliver content based on user type, location and network
  • High availability and fail-over. Maximize uptime by creating a cluster of Enterprise Terminal Servers reducing unplanned downtime
