IGEL Technology today announced a technology partnership with 2x, an international provider of cloud computing software. The first solution employs IGEL thin clients and 2X ApplicationServer XG software to create a particularly economical, secure and environmentally friendly method of delivering virtual applications and desktops across many locations.
Like IGEL’s products, the 2X ApplicationServer XG solution, which has received many awards including the 2011 TMCnet Cloud Computing Excellence Award, is notable for its universal approach. For instance, its connection brokers support the widely used hypervisors from Microsoft, VMware, Citrix and many other providers. The strong points of the solution include powerful universal printing/scanning functionality as well as high-performance load distribution based on currently available resources.

“We’re very pleased that with 2X ApplicationServer XG we now support yet another attractive solution for server-based and virtual computing,” stated Simon Richards, UK Managing Director for IGEL UK. “The universal solution from 2X complements very well the Universal Desktop approach from IGEL, which provides our customers both flexible and future-ready system environments.”
“Thanks to our partnership with IGEL, our solution will now also be supported by the leading international provider of Linux-based thin clients,” noted Nicolaos Makris, the CEO of 2X. “Our customers will now be able to readily apply the great cost-effectiveness of our solution to their desktop infrastructures. Compared to environments made up of workstation PCs, they’ll be able to enjoy lasting reductions in costs and also have less of an impact on the environment.”
