2X Software has released version 8 of its 2X ApplicationServer and 2X
VirtualDesktopServer products. The new version not only includes the
ability to publish applications and virtual desktops, but also allows
the management of user thin client configurations from within the
application console.

This creates an all-in-one application for remote publishing and
device management, according to Nikolaos Makris, CEO of 2X Software.
The new release will further reduce IT administration hassles, by
allowing centralized control of both device groups and published
resources, he adds.

2X VirtualDesktopServer v. 8 publishes any Windows application or
virtual desktop to remote devices, including thin clients and Mac,
Windows and Linux systems, without the need to install applications
or desktops to local machines. The 2X VirtualDesktopServer also
serves as a connection broker for the Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESX,
Parallels Containers and Windows Terminal Server virtualization

Makris says the 2X VirtualDesktopServer is designed to be highly
cost-effective from the beginning of implementation, with a pricing
structure based upon the number of agents (servers) installed, rather
than the number of concurrent users, creating a favorable combination
of pricing and features for businesses of all sizes. Pricing starts
at US$1,190 for the 2X VirtualDesktopServer Small Business Edition,
managing a single terminal server without user or connection
limitations. More info and a free trial version of the product are
