Practice Director offers support for a number of multiple office deployment choices. Common deployment scenarios are listed below.
Windows Terminal Sever
Practice Director supports using Terminal Services with the following operating systems: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Windows Terminal Server is a proven deployment architecture for supporting enterprise-level software across WAN connections.
Linux Terminal Server
Practice Director offers a plug-and-play installation of Linux Terminal Server, along with NoMachine NX, on a Practice Director-supplied server to support an unlimited number of office connections. Linux is a viable and low-cost alternative to Windows Server. Please contact us for details on Linux Terminal Servers.
Mac OS X Terminal Server
Practice Director works well with either an Aqua Connect Terminal Server or iRAPP Terminal Server. iRAPP and Aqua Connect support the same RDP protocol that a Windows Terminal Server uses to allow both PCs and Macs to connect to a Mac Terminal Server remotely.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
A VPN provides a secure, economical solution for transferring information among multi-site practices. A VPN router, such as a Cisco ASA, can be installed at each location. A single VPN router can be installed at the Server location using a VPN Client to connect to the VPN router. VPNs encrypt the data communication among sites ensuring the security and HIPAA compliance of the data transferred. In general, VPN is not recommended for busy offices where more immediate response times are critical.
