HOB RD Selector

HOB RD Selector - Load Balancing Solution for Windows Remote Desktop Services

Optimized Performance and Lower Hardware Costs Thanks to High-End Load Balancing from HOB



Administrators who supervise Microsoft Remote Desktop Services in large server farms are familiar with this problem: Unequal load distribution amongst the servers often causes noticeably lower performance, leading to numerous user complaints. A common, but expensive, solution to this problem is to purchase more hardware. However, there is an easier and better solution - HOB RD Selector.


In HOB RD Selector you have a load balancing solution that provides for optimum utilization of your server farm. Numerous configuration options allow an exact calibration of the load balancing requirements specifically for your setup.


The HOB load balancing solution was developed for use with HOBLink JWT, a Java RDP client, and is now available for Microsoft RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) users. Enterprises using this Microsoft solution can enhance it with a mature load balancing component which has proven its worth through many years in productive use, also in very large systems.
