What is 2X ApplicationServer XG and How Does it Work?
Posted by on 11 April 2012 09:40 AM

2X ApplicationServer XG is an application that provides vendor independent virtual desktops and applications. Accessible from anywhere. 2X ApplicationServer XG allows you to publish full desktops and applications within a virtual environment, improving desktop manageability, security and performance.

2X ApplicationServer XG extends Windows Terminal Services by using a customized shell and virtual channel applications using the Microsoft RDP protocol.

2X ApplicationServer XG supports a number of different technologies, including Microsoft Terminal Server , VMware, Oracle VirtualBox, Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Hyper-V, Virtual Iron, and Parallels, to allow the publishing of virtual applications and desktops to the 2X Client. Virtual objects are load balanced over all available machines while automatically releasing unused resources.

How does it Work?

When a client requests a virtual desktop, the system finds a guest on one of the least loaded hosts and starts or restores the guest connection.  Using Microsoft RDP protocol, the virtual desktop is presented to the user.  

Thin client computing is solving the growing management problem of fat clients (PC’s), allowing employees to roam easily and seamlessly, improving performance.  Companies that have migrated to a thin client environment consistently see huge savings on support, hardware and upgrade costs. In a world where energy use is an increasing concern, implementing a thin client environment improves energy costs as well.  A study conducted by Bloor Research shows that "Deploying thin client technology across enterprises can cut costs by up to 70%"!
