What is new in Version 14

The new 2X Remote Application Server version 14 focuses on reporting, continuous availability and enhanced technology to support mobile workforces. Highlights of the new features are:

2X Reporting

The new 2X Reporting engine is capable of providing information that helps administrators adjust systems for better performance and efficiency. Support users in a pre-emptive manner, by detecting and preventing bottlenecks before they escalate into issues, rather than dealing with outages as they arise. The intuitive reporting interface boasts 14 new reports in total, separated into 5 groups for easy access. Below are the groups available:

  1. User Reports group provides insight into how end users are interacting with 2X RAS.
  2. Group Reports indicate how groups of users are interacting with the system.
  3. Devices Reports yields information about the devices that are connecting to 2X RAS.
  4. Server Reports generate 2X RAS server component usage statistics including server health, showing CPU and RAM usage in a graph.
  5. Application Reports to learn which applications are being used.

High Availability Load Balancing

HALB is a software solution that sits between the user and the 2X RAS gateways. Many HALB services can run simultaneously, one acting as the master and the others as slaves. The higher the number of HALB services available, the lower the probability that users will experience downtime. The master and slave appliances share a common or virtual IP, also known as VIP. Should the master HALB service fail, a slave is promoted to master and takes its place seamlessly.

Invitation Email

2X Remote Application Server supports multiple platforms, and the product has always been designed to help administrators by facilitating the installation and client rollout process. The invitation email allows the administrator to send the installation and auto-configuration instructions to end users from the central management console.

Universal Scanning WIA and Scanner Rename Pattern

It is now possible to redirect Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) enabled devices. Further customize how the scanner name is presented to the user with the new scanner renaming pattern.

IPV6 Ready

Version 14 of 2X RAS introduces IPv6 to the system. The Increasing number of Devices connected over internet has created the need to have a  better addressing system. The product will still need IPv4 in order to work as IPv6 is introduced at the Secure Proxy Gateway and Connectivity Level. This means that IPv6 is for end user usage to address this need.

Other Major Improvements in 2X Remote Application Server V14

  • Enhanced Windows device Features in the Client Manager
  • Added more encryption algorithms 2X Gateways
  • SSO for window 8 , 8.1 and 2012
