Dallas, TX, July 8, 2009 – 2X Software, the global developer of server-based computing software, announced today it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The company was added to the list due to its robust product line, which includes the 2X ApplicationServer for Windows Terminal Services, 2X LoadBalancer for Terminal Services/Citrix, 2X ThinClientServer and the 2X VirtualDesktopServer. 2X products drew praise for offering easily scalable, installable and manageable solutions with straightforward licensing, resulting in product prices far below those of their competitors. CRN’s Emerging Technology Vendor list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants.
