FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is Devolutions Server?

Devolutions Server is a specialized data source for our various client applications of the Remote Desktop Manager platform.

Why buy Devolutions Server?

Ideal for businesses that would prefer to store their data in-house, want to deploy their own SSL certificate or firewall or who needs Active Directory integration with user groups management.

What are the key benefits of Devolutions Server?

Devolutions Server is installed on your hardware, in your environment, or with your ISP to give you total control of everything, including:

  • Active Directory integration
  • User Groups management
  • Hardware
  • Operating System
  • Firewall / Application Delivery
  • Load Balancing / Fault tolerant environment for the web server layer.
  • Database, including clustering/failover capabilities.
