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.

SolarWinds Take Control (formerly SolarWinds MSP Anywhere)

In situations in which you have high-end, up-to-date hardware systems, Take Control will thrive. Using the software on older system, or clients that do not wish to update to current OS/hardware, Take Control will suffer.

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.

SolarWinds Take Control (formerly SolarWinds MSP Anywhere)

Take Control can be accessed through a browser whereas Windows Remote Desktop requires settings on the PC and device to remote into the end device. Installing the end devices application has mostly been a flawless install with limited setting configurations. GoToMyPC has often required a reboot of the end device in order to get it working.

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

SolarWinds Take Control (formerly SolarWinds MSP Anywhere)

  • Looks professional and the ease of addressing issues raised by the RMM gives clients confidence in me as their provider.
  • Managed Service clients tend to appreciate minimal work interruption, so quick connections that don't require user interaction is great.
