Hi, I was wondering if there’s any plan to release NoMachine Workstation for Linux/ARM or RPi, and/or whether it’s already available.
I was considering to replace a number of Intel NUCs with the upcoming RPi4, which, among other things, is supposed to be much more performant than the Atom-based nucs i have, but no NX-workstation availability is a bit of a showstopper for me.
I’m evaluating whether to switch to VNC or just stay on x86.. Eventually i would probably try with VNC, which in general has decent performance, but if NX-workstation would be available, then that’d be perfect.
Oh, if you wonder why regular nx is not an option, well, because in my experience the h264-compressed video streaming has generally performed worse than VNC, for me, while the “light” protocol (from nx3 times) is still far superior to everything else available for Linux
NoMachine Workstation on Raspberry may be possible. You need to contact our Sales Team 🙂 We didn’t make it available at the time of adding support for RPi initially because the HW couldn’t cope with running up to 4 virtual desktops (which is what the Workstation provides), but now that the HW has improved, it’s worth exploring. Our tests show that RPi3 can run no more than 3 virtual desktop sessions in low resolution, plus 1 physical desktop session. RPi4, on the other hand, is much more powerful and our initial tests are looking very positive 🙂
