Is there a program similar to remote desktop in linux


I've add a small centos dell quad xeon server to my rack dedicated to our large wifi system.
Is there a way to offsite manage this server similar to remote desk top?

Linux Voice #12, pages 58 to 63, (March 2015) did a group test of remote desktop clients and was forced to conclude that “It's proprietary, but NoMachine NX is way ahead of everything out there”.

If this is a rackmount server with a dedicated task like running a wifi network, may I ask why you need a full GUI desktop in order to manage it remotely?
