2X Releases First Cloud Software Solution for Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware and Citrix XenServer with Integrated Thin Client Management
2X ApplicationServer XG v10.5 Brings Together VDI, Application Delivery & Thin Client Management from a Single Platform.
Dallas, TX, Nov 08, 2012 – 2X Software today announced the release of Version 10.5 of its award winning 2X ApplicationServer XG. 2X Software is the first to offer Hypervisor Independent Application Delivery and Virtual Desktop Management (VDI) with the integration of full Thin Client Management in a single software package. The release also includes a host of new features including Second Level Authentication with Radius, URL Redirection Blacklist and RAW printing.
2X ApplicationServer XG 10.5 seamlessly delivers VDI, Windows Remote Desktop Services (RDSH), published applications and remote PCs to any mobile or desktop device from a single platform, extending Windows Remote Desktop Services by using a customized shell and virtual channel applications using the Microsoft RDP protocol.
Fully compatible with Microsoft RDP 8 RemoteFX, Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, RDP 8 RemoteFX features are supported when using the free 2X Client for Windows in Direct and Gateway Modes. With the improvements to Microsoft RDP 8 RemoteFX, users will benefit from higher definition and improved multimedia video play back across the LAN or WAN.
In addition to these features all customers will have the option to purchase the 2X ClientManager Module upgrading their installation to 2X ApplicationServer XG 10.5 PLUS.
2X ClientManager allows administrators to centrally manage user connections, thin client devices and PCs converted into thin clients using the free 2XOS, with future versions set to include the management of mobile devices.
Other new features in 2X ApplicationServer XG 10.5 include:
- Integration of Radius as a second level authentication provider
- Ability to generate an SSL certificate request directly from the console
- URL Redirection Blacklist allowing Administrators to configure URLs that will not be redirected to the client and stay on the server
- Support for Hyper V Cluster
- Raw Printing so applications that send RAW data format directly to the printer will work when the printer is redirected
