2X Software, a specialist in Virtual Desktop and Application Delivery, released the 2X ApplicationServer XG, fully compatible with Microsoft (News - Alert) RDP 8 RemoteFX, Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.
This version offers support to all RDP 8 RemoteFX features when the free 2X Client is used for Windows in both Direct and Gateway (News - Alert) Modes. The company’s solutions also ensure remote access and corporate mobility.
Nikolaos Makris, CEO at 2X Software said, “2X Software are excited to use this new technology and are impressed by the quality, reliability and performance of RDP 8. The Citrix ICA protocol no longer has such an advantage.”
The 2X (News - Alert) ApplicationServer XG can seamlessly deliver VDI, Windows Terminal Services (RDSH), published applications and remote PCs to mobile and desktop devices from a single platform. This extends Windows Terminal Services via a customized shell and virtual channel applications using the Microsoft RDP protocol.
The enhanced version of the RDP 8 RemoteFX enables users to leverage higher definition and better multimedia video play back across the LAN or WAN.
The 2X ApplicationServer XG is hypervisor independent and can support Microsoft Hyper-V. It features powerful universal printing and scanning capabilities, integrated thin client management and high-capacity resource based load balancing as well.
Users will benefit from the flexibility of working from anywhere, as the free 2X Client RDP/Remote Desktop lets them take the Windows 8 desktops and applications with them. They can conveniently connect to their work or home PC from any device synergizing the advantages of the PC and the tablet.
“With 2X ApplicationServer XG you can deploy a blended model based on user and cost requirements, delivering the best of VDI and Microsoft Terminal Services from a single platform. 2X simplifies desktop virtualization so administrators can take full advantage of the enhanced Virtualization features that Microsoft Windows Server 2012 has to offer for Private Cloud Computing,” Makris added.
