University of Technology, Sydney Selects NoMachine for Remote Desktop Access
NoMachine's software enables the university to provide more than 400 student researchers and staff with remote access to graphic-intensive mathematics, physics, and computational applications, such as MATLAB, located on the university's FEIT High Performance Computing Linux Cluster. Users log into cluster nodes via the facility's web portal, and NoMachine's NX Web Companion connects them to an easy-to-use GUI desktop environment without requiring them to configure any client-side software. Since researchers need the supercomputing resources from both on and off campus, NoMachine is used to ensure secure, dependable access from Mac, Windows, or Linux computers.
"Rather than statically configuring profiles for 100+ machines, we have a web front end that dynamically creates a session at the users request," said FEIT Research Computing Manager, Dr. Matt Gaston. "NoMachine provides essentially a single sign-on environment, allowing users to connect to multiple machines without entering their password multiple times."
The university tried a few different software options, but were either restricted to Windows or the speed wasn't ideal. NoMachine provided fast, cross-platform support for users. Users are also now given the ability to customize session settings in the portal, such as screen resolution or compression settings, for a richer desktop experience and enhanced productivity.
"Our HPC facility totally depends on NoMachine. It is a critical component of our system," adds Dr. Gaston.
