2X Juxtaposes New and Old Clients

2X Software VirtualDesktopServer 9 was created to integrate the rapidly expanding and dynamic world of client devices with traditional IT environments. It does this by providing application and virtual desktop delivery to a wide range of machines, ranging from PCs and workstations to mobile up-and-comers like iPhone, iPad and Android.

2X, which says it is adding 200-250 new customers each month, is also using the new release to enhance the implementation and management of tried-and-true virtualized IT infrastructures such as Microsoft Terminal, Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, VMware vSphere, ESX and ESXi, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, Oracle VirtualBox, and Windows Remote Desktop Services/Windows Terminal Services, to name but a few.

According to 2X CEO Nikolaos Makris, VirtualDesktopServer 9 enables users to pool their desktops for purposes such as accounting and support and then publish applications from these environments. In addition, Templates enable admins to ease the burden of distributing desktops to users by creating desktops from a single template. V9 also provides Wyse Desktop Broker support.

Makris emphasizes 2X's role as a connection broker that delivers many different technologies, saying. "We don't care if it's Terminal Server or VMware, we're very, very flexible. We connect you from any technology you have." That means Android co-exists with old PCs in IT harmony. The CEO says 2X Software is private, profitable and has no long-term debt.
