2X, developer of virtual and thin client computing software, today announced the release of 2X ThinClientServer version 6. The latest version includes a new user-friendly web-based management console and important features enhancing the performance and functionality of its popular thin client OS and management system.
With the increasing popularity for VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) the demand for manageable and affordable thin client solutions explodes. The benefit of virtualization to most companies is that mobile users can take thin-clients; laptops or USB drives/sticks and recreate the corporate computing environment in a secure and controlled setting. This takes a lot of the expense out of managing hundreds or thousands of fat client desktops.
2X ThinClientServer deploys a small footprint Linux-based OS to popular thin client devices (HP, Neoware, Wyse, BOSAaNOVA, SAMSUNG and more) and to old or new PCs and laptops. Thin clients always boot the latest version of the OS from the ThinClientServer or locally. Hardware & connection settings (including resolution, logging and more) can be retrieved from the server when the client logs on, making thin clients easy to manage.
Pricing starts at $595 for managing up to 25 thin clients; $1195 for 50 thin clients and $3695 for 250 thin clients.
