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.

SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere (DRE)

I think for ANY environment it's worth taking it out for a test drive. It's very powerful, especially when using the agent to connect to sessions where the end user doesn't need admin rights but when not in a VDI environment it likely would perform better with its built in functionality to ask for elevation.It is really powerful, even with the ability to run command line scripts without the user seeing (kind of a built in psexec) and it does work with Mac and Linux to some degree too so it really is worth trying out regardless of your environment. It may be just what you're looking for and the sales folks at DRE are not pushy at all, at least in my experience, and give great advice even at the expense of selling less licenses!

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.

  • Works great with devices that are outside of the organization's network.
  • Console can be used via the app or web based.
  • DRE works with Windows, MAC, and Linux.

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.
John Robinson | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Names of computers in DRE should mirror the actual computer name in AD and not have nicknames. We adjust laptop and desktop names according to their location. If the DRE name isn't manually updated, it can make a lot of confusion.

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 had to contact their support. However, SolarWinds in general has great customer support. I cannot imagine a specific product like this would be lacking.

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!

SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere tops Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Manager and Remote Desktop Protocol. It's feature set far outweighs the competition and is infinitely more secure than RDP.SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere also allows access to other operating systems on your network, allowing a single application for multiple functions.

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.

SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere (DRE)

  • Drives down costs on fuel for vehicle use.
  • Drives up billable time able to work on multiple issues at once for billable.
