Remote Application Deployment with NX

This video is courtesy emiemi2.

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a useful tool for accessing and controlling remote machines, but its responsiveness leaves much to be desired -- especially when you're accessing remote machines via a slow network connection.

NX is a new technology that allows one to run remote X11 sessions across slow or low-bandwidth network connections.It provides near local speed application responsiveness over high latency, low bandwidth links.

NX compresses the X11 data to minimize the amount of data transmitted. NX also makes extensive use of caching, to make the session as responsive as possible.For example, if a menu is opened, the first time it will take a few seconds, but every subsequent time the menu is opened,it will appear almost instantly.

This video is an introduction to NX - a technology that makes remote applications fly over internet.
