If you have lots of servers to manage, lots of credentials, different protocols, documents, other files, and need a single tool to manage it, this is the tool. Active Directory integrated, user and groups permissions, audit everything, keep data in encrypted files or in a database, customize everything, even the installer,

In situations where we didn't need to pass through local disks, we found Awingu to be a good fit. Especially the multiscreen options in an HTML5 browser are pretty unique to them. The extensive options to do MFA are also very user-friendly.

Pros
Devolutions
  • Customer service delivery, whereby you can connect to clients to assist and resolve an incident.
  • Working from home logging onto office based machine.
  • It helps to attend to a problem more quickly, thereby saving the cost of relocation and commuting to distant places.
  • Speed and cost elements are critical here.

Cons
Devolutions
  • I would like to see advanced auditing in the Devolution's drive data source like there are in some of the others. But that's just something I'd like to see, it doesn't hinder my using the app.
  • I would love to see even more addons available from even more software and service developers, but again the addon manager is great already so it's not a hindrance what so ever.

  • Being only/mainly an HTML5 solution some resources can't be passed through (file shares)
  • Publishing apps to local desktops would be nicer if there was a "add to desktop" shortcut.

I've been using RDM for about 10 years now. I started with the free version, which I used for a few years, and eventually switched to the Enterprise version. I can never go back now! I use this tool for everything and cannot see doing my job without it! Whenever we have someone new come in or bring in a vendor/contractor, they always ask me what RDP tool I'm using. Once I explain about it's features and all, they're usually instantly sold on it. :)

I use this tool for almost everything in my day to day job. I launch the VMware VI Client from RDM. I launch vSphere Web Client Sessions from RDM. I RDP from RDM. Access Dell iDRAC and HP iLO via RDM, as well as Cisco UCS Manager and iKVM. I have saved SSH Sessions to my VMware hosts. I have URLs saved to get to things like IPAM, etc

I've never had to use support as I've never had an issue. That said, you can open a support ticket right from the UI. The user forums are active, and there are thousands of threads covering many topics. Very easy to get support if needed. This is an easy ten.

  1. The types of sessions. You are not limited to just RDP sessions, you can do SSH, Web Browser, iLO, or really any session you can imagine that you might use to connect to a remote service
  2. The extensions, add-ons, and features of RDM. You simply can do a lot more.
  3. Automation - There's additional things you can do that help automate your workday to make things easier
  4. The interface - It's easier to navigate and deal with multiple sessions at a time.

Awingu has more features in its HTML5 offering, which is the main advantage it has. Parallels RAS also has a local application which gives it some additional features (passing through drives)

Return on Investment
Devolutions
  • A common place for storage for all users. Instead of employees using multiple different password management systems, they all use Remote Desktop Manager to store them now.
  • We don't have to buy licenses from multiple vendors when everyone uses Remote Desktop Manager.
