NX is a computer program that handles remote X Window System connections and it provides two benefits for NERSC users:
- NX can greatly improve the performance of X Windows to the point that it can be usable over a slow link such as a dial-up modem.
- NX provides sessions that allow a user to disconnect from the session and reconnect to it at a later time while keeping the state of all running applications inside the session. This gives users a virtual desktop that's running at NERSC.
