My group (University of Cincinnati) has a server in Cincinnati which we use heavily, mainly for research into GPU integration in particle physics analyses.
All the members in the group are based at CERN for the moment, and the best way to use the machine in Cincinnati without the lag of ssh is by using X2Go. Hands down, X2Go is the best tool I’ve used for it.
Our post-doc introduced us to the tool, and the entire group uses it now.
