NoMachine Terminal Server

NoMachine Linux Terminal Server Family

NoMachine Terminal Server is the new generation of the award winning NX Linux Terminal Server, the term of comparison for Linux server-based computing solutions for more than 10 years. It is the perfect answer to those looking for a solution able to create hundreds of hosted Linux desktops, easy to manage and secure. NoMachine Terminal Server doesn't suffer from all the limitations that affect the traditional X-Window based solutions. Your desktop continues to live while it is disconnected, devices shared on the server follow you wherever you go and speed is spectacular even over the most modest network link, so fast to be unbeaten by any similar product designed for any operating system, not only Linux.

Run unlimited Linux virtual desktops using the Terminal Server functionality

Scales up to your needs

The NoMachine's Terminal Server system is designed to run a big number of Linux desktops on a host. Version 5 represents the latest iteration of the well-known NX technology, with loads of new features, capabilities and enhancements that bring NX to the next level. Even a low-end dual-core computer with enough RAM can run tens of virtual desktops. NoMachine Linux Terminal Server provides all your users with their own personal workspace and lets you configure what each individual user gets, in terms of desktop environment and applications.

From the Workstation to the Terminal Server, there is a product that suits any work group, from the design team, needing to share the high-end graphics hardware, to the sales team of a large organization. Did we say that any Linux computer can be used as a server? When a Terminal Server has become too small to handle all clients, you can add more Terminal Server hosts as nodes of an Enterprise Server. Multiple Enterprise Servers can be combined together to work as a high-availability cluster. You can grow your network to fit any need.

Add on Terminal Server Nodes and access them through Enterprise Server

Makes your clients thin again

NoMachine lets you use any computer as a client. The NoMachine Enterprise Client software is so thin that it's possible to run it on 10 year-old computers without any impact on performance. Any client running the NoMachine software can be easily equated to a thin-client. In fact a thin client is a client computer that doesn't need anything to run but the NoMachine software required to play the output produced on the server. Thin clients are really cheap to acquire, or you can refurbish old computers that are unable to run today's applications anymore.

NoMachine client software runs on really everything, from an old Windows XP computer to any known Linux distribution, from a pen-drive computer, to Android and iOS. And if you have a number of thin-clients you want to convert, or if you run a custom Linux on some ARM processor, NoMachine can make a build optimized for your hardware. But of course, a thin client doesn't need to be really thin. So, in the era of Bring Your Own Device, you can let your users bring their own laptops or phones and let them access corporate data and applications under the control your organization deserves.

Works with applications you work with

For design and content creation companies to remain competitive in today’s global business climate, they need to employ technologies that help technical employees and contractors collaborate to solve complex design problems. Their designers, sales people and customers involved in the design process need access to design information and tools – anywhere and anytime, and the enterprise needs to safeguard its valuable intellectual property. The enterprise is therefore faced with finding cost-effective ways to securely share data models and content over a widely distributed workforce whilst delivering fast and clear graphics.

Thanks to its exclusive NX remote display technology and VirtualGL/OpenGL integration, all NoMachine products offering the Linux Terminal Server functionality make it possible to run any graphic-intensive task, including multimedia, as fast and seamlessly as if your users were sitting in front of their computer.

Complex 3D applications, such as CAD/CAM design, manufacturing, medical, or statistical analysis applications, running in Unix and Linux environments are rendered and displayed with the best possible accuracy and performance to thin clients located elsewhere. By leveraging the accelerated capabilities of modern graphics cards, users are empowered to access high-end graphical applications, including those Linux desktop environments which rely heavily on OpenGL, from any PC or device.

Some of the world's top engineering, design and research teams rely on our software as they drive tomorrow's product innovation. NoMachine Terminal Server products are helping organizations to build safer cars, discover new sources of energy, model the climate and find cures for cancer and other diseases.

Run remote 3D apps thanks to VirtualGL/OpenGL support in NX remote display technology

Besides the thousands of Linux applications, NoMachine works with any X-Windows application, even residing on a different host. Thanks to the native network transparency of NX and the X-Windows protocol, applications can work on the same Linux host where the Terminal Server is running, or any server or workstation that is reachable through the network. Any application running on Oracle Solaris, HP UX, IBM AIX can be provided on-demand. NoMachine provides software adapters for every known Unix, so that your investment in storage and applications can continue to live even when the hardware is not able to scale anymore.
