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.

ShowMyPC

If you need unattended remote access, you will need one of the paid plans, so for a quick always on remote support option, [ShowMyPC] may not be the best suited. If security is an issue and your client's compliance rules won't allow always on remote access, then ShowMyPC is probably the best on-[the]-fly remote access on the market. On demand access is always free and can be done via browser or via a very small client download.

Cons

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
Takao Sakaguchi | TrustRadius Reviewer

ShowMyPC

  • Free level should have automatic reconnect on reboot
  • Being a remote access only software pricing plans could be better
  • Branding should be allowed on lower plans

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

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.
Takao Sakaguchi | TrustRadius Reviewer

ShowMyPC

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.

Return on Investment

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

ShowMyPC

  • The on-demand access is free - can't get a better ROI than that
  • Plans are relatively inexpensive - as long as you are not managing large amounts of devices
  • Having a go to remote access solution that enables clients to control access is priceless
