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.

The primary use case is to assist an IT team working on computers across offices, or at times a server handled by another department. If it is offsite work and we need quick access. It also helps in getting access of BYOD devices of all employees and its file sharing feature is one of the most used in a few departments although support for integration with cloud service providers is a sore point.

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

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.

ShowMyPC lags behind its competition when it comes to usability and smoothness in operations, its UI on the web is complicated and seems out of place. The high point of this product is its customer service provided through chat support for any issues which is instant. The product also lacks integration with rd party CSPs for file sharing and it does not have a MAC client which works against it.
