Quick Network Change Diagram

I made a quick diagram to illustrate to a few people the new design that we are testing whereby NX technology is used to deploy to our workstations.  I thought it might be a good visual tool to clarify my last blog.  Instead of using the Xserver and Pulse daemon on the thin clients, everything is passed through the backend computer server running NX/GNOME.  This allows for a stateless connection that can be resumed on any hardware that runs the NX client and any browser.




Lots of progress in testing this concept, and I'll blog about it next year.

Happy New Year.

Your network diagram is starting to look more like the (now defunct) Sun Ray.

We have looked at them many times. Oracle stifled all things cool when they bought Sun.

I hope you have redundant Gnome servers cause that looks like a single point of failure. Otherwise it looks to be a lot more efficient, good work keep it up.

Great diagram! I used a website called Lucidchart to create my own server network diagram and it was really easy to understand. If you use diagrams often you should check it out!
