Guacamole, developed by Apache, is a unique gateway that enables remote access to your desktop without requiring any additional plugins or client software. It harnesses the power of HTML5 to provide this service, and once installed on a server, only a web browser is needed to gain access to your desktops.

Apache Guacamole™


This remote desktop software supports various standard protocols such as VNC, RDP, and SSH. The key advantage Guacamole offers is unconditional access to your computers from any location or device with an internet connection. This feature makes it incredibly flexible and convenient for users who are constantly on the move.

In addition to this, Guacamole allows you to keep your desktop in the cloud. No physical existence of the accessed desktops is necessary as both Guacamole and a desktop operating system can be hosted in the cloud. By combining Guacamole's convenience with cloud computing's resilience and flexibility, you can have an exceptionally robust remote desktop solution.

With 2573 GitHub stars and the latest commit on 2023-07-04 the project looks healthy.
