mRemoteNG

Well suited to environments where IT staff need to access multiple servers/systems at the same time, cutting down on time wasted opening multiple windows.Not so useful for users that only need to access one system remotely, as most of its functions are largely unused in that case.

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

If you just want to connect to the server and do work (like Linux server-workstation type), NoMachine Enterprise Desktop is great, except for the keyboard mapping issue, which you have to correct in a setup of the remote server (almost) every time you log on. The graphics are smooth and fast. Overall response speed is very good, too. I like it.

Pros

mRemoteNG

  • Tabbed Views. Each server remote desktop is viewed in its own separate tab, similar to a web browser. This makes it much quicker and easier to switch between them than using separate windows.
  • Storing credentials. You can configure it with log on credentials for each system, saving time on accessing as you don't need to enter a password each time.
  • Multiple connection types. I use the traditional RDP the most, but mRemoteNG allows many different connection types, similar to Putty.

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

  • Secure connection
  • Fast response over internet
  • Really look like you are sitting in front of the machine you are connecting.

Cons

mRemoteNG

  • The user interface for configuration is a little basic, and not obvious for a new user to set up connections. It could be a bit clearer how to do that.
  • It does not seem to automatically update itself to new versions - though older ones work fine, you can miss out on some new functions if you don't check for updates manually.

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

  • Keyboard mapping between client and host is often screwed up.
  • Cut and paste between client and host is not convenient
  • Would be nice if there was a function of simple file transfer between client and host

Never actually needed to use support so have no idea - honestly it's simple enough to use I'd be surprised if anyone really needs support with it.

I haven't consulted with customer support, so I don't have an opinion. However, from the usefulness of the product, I think the support is also good

Alternatives Considered

mRemoteNG

mRemoteNG is far more useful than LogMeIn when on the same network, or VPN as the servers, as it allows multiple server screens open in multiple tabs. LogMeIn is much more useful when working out of the office for its ability to connect anywhere, but each system accessed is in a separate window making navigation a little tricky. Sometimes I use them in tandem however, LogMeIn to access a machine in my network, then mRemoteNG to access multiple machines from there!

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

Again, the NoMachine is a real virtual terminal, and you don't need to install another Linux on your machine to fully exploit the X-terminal function. This makes the disk and memory usage of the client minimum. No issue on the screen. It is really good.

Return on Investment

mRemoteNG

  • Unquantifiable, really. It has definitely saved me time, and while each day it might not be much, over the course of a year I'm sure it has made an impact to my productivity level overall.

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

  • It makes the access to server much easier and convenient
  • Connection is very stable, which makes works very efficient
  • I don't need to reboot my Windows PC to switch to Linux in order to fully exploit the working environment of the server.
  • No negative impact
