Linux terminal server done right

NoMachine Linux Terminal Server Family

Bring the power of Linux to any of your desktops

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.

Scales up to your needs

NoMachine's Terminal Server family was released as an innovative iteration of the well-known NX Terminal Server System, and now in its 8th edition continues to take NX technology to the next level with its succession of commended new features, capabilities and enhancements. NoMachine Terminal Server is designed to let you create hundreds of virtual Linux desktops on a single physical computer (or a Linux VM, if you prefer), as many as you can get on the server. Even a low-end dual-core computer with enough RAM can run tens of virtual desktops to provide all your users with their own personal workspace, each one running independently on the same server, and lets you configure what each individual user gets, in terms of desktop environment and applications. 'Virtual NoMachine desktops' are new X-Windows sessions created by a NoMachine Linux Terminal Server product on a Linux server. These virtual desktop instances are a natural fit for Linux, since Linux and the X-Windows system were created and developed with the idea of running such a massive number of separate graphical sessions on a single host.
The advantage of this approach is control, scalability and greatly reduced management costs. Users normally don't have administrative rights on the terminal server, so they can be managed centrally. Adding new users is extremely cheap, since you don't have to run a new virtual machine and a new operating system instance. Maintenance costs are kept low because the operating system running on the server is updated for all users at the same time. Storage and peripherals are naturally shared and all of this contributes to keeping the operational costs down. NoMachine lets you expand your network to fit any need. From the Workstation to the Terminal Server, there is a product that suits any work group, from design professionals, needing to share the high-end graphics hardware, to the sales team of a large organization. When a single Terminal Server has become too small to handle all clients, you can add Enterprise Terminal Server Nodes to an Enterprise Terminal Server, which converges user access and performs efficient load-balancing of session requests. For additional robustness, two Enterprise Terminal Server Cluster can be combined together to work as a high-availability cluster. That’s not all. For large projects that can often have multiple Terminal Server Products configured for various user groups, departments and type of usage, access can be further streamlined by placing a Cloud Server gateway on a dedicated host and adding each Terminal Server product to it.

Makes your clients thin again

NoMachine client software runs literally on any device: from an old Windows XP computer to any known Linux distribution, from a pen-drive, to a Raspberry Pi, not to mention the mobile platforms Android and iOS. Any client running the NoMachine software can be considered a thin client and this brings with it a number of benefits. With NoMachine installed, any computer is effectively a streaming device and thus integral to the security of protected data which resides on the server. Without compromising security, office-based workers become “work-from-anywhere” users freeing up space in the office and making organizations nimbler.
The free NoMachine Enterprise Client software is thin enough to let you repurpose old or unused computers, saving time, energy and money. And for remote users connecting from clientless endpoints, their desktop environment can be deployed to any client via an HTML-enabled browser. No plug-in or extensions required. Any modern browser will suffice, including those of the most popular mobile operating systems. This is a tremendous simplification compared to all similar software on the market. But not all clients are traditionally thin clients. In the era of Bring Your Own Device, employees or guests that bring their own laptop or tablet can access corporate data and applications through their own browser, but under the control your organization deserves.

Works with applications you work with

Terminal Server can publish any Linux desktop environment and any applications running there to users worldwide whilst protecting and controlling the data and other IT assets being accessed. This is especially important with mission-critical, specialized applications essential to many industries like chipset design, big data analysis, automotive and aerospace, animation and so on. Whether users are accessing CAD, 3D rendering, modeling, illustration, desktop publishing environments, the enterprise needs to safeguard its valuable intellectual property. IP protection is a greater challenge for design engineering companies, as they need to collaborate with vendors and contractors in different countries. Centralization of desktops and applications with NoMachine Terminal Server makes sure that your design files never leave the datacenter yet allows everyone to work on them remotely. Additionally, the administrator can lock down the desktop and the user profile and ensure that internal policies concerning data protection are adhered to.
In today’s era of ubiquitous connectivity and remote collaboration, 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 as some of the world's top engineering, design and research teams rely on our software as they drive tomorrow's product innovation. Consider also that NoMachine Terminal Server products integrate smoothly with the NoMachine Enterprise Desktop and Enterprise Cloud Server products, to offer seamless desktop sharing as all the NoMachine Enterprise products do.
