The architecture for a Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server deployment is composed of:
- a Server Machine running Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server
- Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Web Client
(which loads on an HTML5 browser)
Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server is a secure, high-performance HTTP / WebSockets server, which serves the web pages needed to run the Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Web Client on the web browser.
When the end-user accesses the Thinfinity® Remote Desktop main page and enters the appropriate connection parameters, the Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Web Client communicates with the server, using Ajax and WebSockets (if available) to start the connection to the remote-end.
Once the connection is established, the server will receive RDP commands, optimize them for the web, and send the resulting data stream to the Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Web Client.
Load Balancing Architectures for Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server:
Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server can be configured in three different load balancing architectures:
- Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server Load Balancer only
- Round-Robin DNS only
- Round-Robin DNS + Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server Load Balancer

Scenarios for Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server:
Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Editions
There are two Thinfinity® Remote Desktop editions: Server and Workstation.
Both editions take advantage of the HTML5 Web browser technology to deliver high-performance RDP access, using only web standards like Ajax, WebSockets and JSON.
The Workstation edition offers a plain web-based RDP client ideal for virtualization scenarios and remote access to single PCs. It also features a second remote access option, VNC-like, for screen sharing. The Workstation edition is ideal for remote assistance and training: its Presentation Tool permits to organize remote meetings with up to 16 attendees.
The Server is a more appropriate solution for Terminal Server environments, large deployments requiring profile management and to publish applications, granting access to a single app instead of sharing the whole desktop.
Besides, the Server Edition of Thinfinity® Remote Desktop includes an SDK library that allows you to publish Windows applications and desktops to the web. This SDK library makes possible the smooth integration of your own Website or application with other existing Windows applications.
