Intelligent Layer 7 RDS/RDP load balancing

Snapt understands remote desktop. That means intelligent, user-based load balancing with full support for modern RDS/RDP technologies.

  • Microsoft Connection Brokers: load balance two (or more) Remote Desktop Connection Brokers and multiple Web Access Servers and Gateway Servers.
  • RDS Servers: load balance your Remote Desktop servers directly without any Brokers
  • Gateway: you are using Remote Desktop Gateway (RDWeb), load balance secure HTTPS data.

What does this mean for you? Snapt is not just a TCP load balancer, forwarding data like a router. It's an intelligent, powerful and secure system that will ensure your users receive the best Remote Desktop experience possible, and that you can scale as you need.

Easy and flexible load balancer configuration

With a few clicks you can deploy a Snapt RDP ADC into your cloud, VM, container, or traditional environment.

Snapt has quick and easy wizards which allow you to set up load balancing between as many RDS/RDP servers as you require, and many more advanced options are available for the perfect set-up.

Analytics and Machine Learning

In modern DevOps visibility and analytics are far more powerful than simple load balancing.

Exclusive to Nova, our AI and machine learning engine monitors and analyzes every single request that gets passed to your remote desktop infrastructure, looking for performance issues, threats, or traffic spikes.

You can receive notifications via email, Slack, webhook and more, and can control the entire platform via REST API, including statistics retrieval.
