Why go remote?
ThinLinc® remote desktops provide a number of distinct advantages over traditional PCs, for both users and administrators alike.
Access from any location
Reach your personal desktop from anywhere with an Internet connection. No need for a VPN when working from home or abroad.
Access from any device
Shut down the classroom PC, log back in from a friend's laptop at home. Even your windows are just where you left them.
Server-based computing is more cost-efficient than traditional desktops. No more splashing out on expensive hardware.
All data is transferred over an encrypted SSH tunnel, so you can connect from anywhere with confidence. Nothing is stored locally unless you want it to be.
Features such as full-duplex audio and local printing support will make you forget that your desktop isn't being run on the machine you're sitting right in front of.
Efficient resource allocation makes better use of server-side hardware, while optimised protocols transfer the desktop seamlessly to your screen.
In-house vs. Hosted
ThinLinc can be installed in-house on your own hardware, or purchased as a fully managed cloud-based solution. Below you'll find some guidelines to help you decide which solution is most appropriate for your organisation.
The following examples illustrate how remote desktop computing may be utilised in different scenarios.
