In 2007, Aqua Connect set out to create the world's first Mac Remote Desktop Server. Since then we have been supporting Mac Remote Desktop Services around the world- for customers with 2 concurrent users to 2,000 concurrent users. Our flagship product has been an innovation and market leader since day one. Enterprise-grade and feature rich, Mac Remote Desktop Services is the cornerstone of OS X desktop deployments in organizations around the world.
Aqua Connect Remote Desktop Services (ACRDS) enables OS X software and applications on that server to be accessed by diverse desktop hardware remotely. ACRDS delivers the Macintosh® experience via OS X servers to diverse hardware and software platforms and mobile devices using graphically enhanced remote access emulation. Incorporating Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), Remote Frame Buffer Protocol (VNC) and the Aqua Connect Accelerated Protocol (AAP), Aqua Connect Remote Desktop Services makes it possible for diverse workstations and RDP or VNC-enabled mobile devices to function as thin clients of a Mac OS X server. When running applications within ACRDS, they are all running on the server and not the client. The server sends the screen information to the client and receives input only from the mouse and keyboard of the client.
Below is a list of all the features that Aqua Connect Remote Desktop Services 3.7 and 3.9 offers:
