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.

I believe Oracle Secure Global Desktop is better used on a larger device such as a desktop or laptop, as the Android platform is a bit confusing when initially introduced to fellow employees who were familiar with the other layout.

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.

  • Very secure.
  • Simple layout that is easily understood by different levels of experience.
  • My company works with Linux and Windows - Oracle Secure Global Desktop easily operates on both platforms.

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.

Oracle SGD

  • Is not supported on Apple devices.
  • Support on Android - the functionality feels flimsy and the layout isn't as user friendly as I thought it would be in comparison to when it is used on a desktop platform.
  • Initially, when first using the product a year or so ago, I received a lot of complaints of random error messages. Though that problem seems to have been solved in the interim.

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.

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!

Tarantella gave us a lot of issues, but with Oracle Secure Global Desktop [we got] the huge portfolio of Oracle applications from almost any browser, without the headache of application dependencies, plugins, java etc. My fellow employees like the way Oracle Secure Global Desktop gives us the "feel" of many little desktops but with one machine.

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.

Oracle SGD

  • Efficiency is definitely a good description. The easy to use platform allows fellow employees to move through their online apps with ease.
  • Applying new online apps is a lot easier, as we do not have to rely on a central server to pull information.
  • As our client is national, it's good to have quick, reliable cloud access to all sensitive materials without worrying about security issues.
