Cons
Apache
  • We have experienced some stability problems (mostly Tomcat related).
  • The interface could be a little more user-friendly.
  • Certain keyboard shortcuts used by Guacamole GUI are impossible to use in the Firefox browser in out-of-the-box configuration.

  • Machines must be online for actions to be performed, scopes allow you to rerun them against failed objects only but really a much better option would be for client agent to check in at power on for open jobs.
  • Newest version of Reach is glitchy on Windows 10 requiring the occasional restart of the application.

Not as full featured for Microsoft products but better at cross platform uses. Agent-less option works better in Goverlan.

Return on Investment
Apache
  • The software is 100% open source and free, however, we are not currently utilizing it due to stability problems we have experienced.

  • With a product like this it is entirely possible that you will see large increase in Help Desk efficiency for those who are willing to take the time to fully explore its possibilities.
  • Much more robust that any other remote support product I have used while still extremely cheap compared to competing products. This can bring enterprise level support options to those that may normally not be able to afford it.
  • Reporting features are invaluable to anyone wanting to truly know what is happening on their network.
