Is there a standalone (point-to-point), remote desktop software for Windows (Win7/Server 2008 R2) that has graphics and audio quality of VMware Views PCoIP solution or Citrix XenDesktops HDX? In simple terms, is there something like VNC that's got REALLY good graphics and full duplex audio?
I've been evalutating both View and XenDesktop. Both are good products, but not necessarily on a home budget. View costs $1,500. XenDesktop costs $500 (cost of licensing vSphere actually; XenDesktop Express is free). Both solutions require 3 servers: a vCenter/XenCenter, an Active Directory domain controller, and the View Manager/Desktop Manager. That's three whole server just to get high quality remote desktop viewing.
So, anything that doesn't require three servers between the host and the client?
