I’d like to announce some minor licensing and pricing changes to the 2X product line. As we continue to combine purchasing cost affordability and on-going maintenance predictability, we’ve initiated the following changes:

Our 2X VirtualDesktopServer will now boast three entry-level offerings, designed for optimal flexibility and user performance:

  • VirtualDesktopServer Small Business Edition (VDSSMB) – 1 server per farm, with up to 80 desktops/connections or virtual guest OS’s and a single Publishing Agent and SecureClientGateway – includes 2X ApplicationServer Small Business, provides the best cost-performance ratio for a single server, and is non-upgradeable.
  • VirtualDesktopServer Professional Edition (VDSPRO) – 2 servers per farm, with up to 160 desktops/connections or virtual guest OS’s and two Publishing Agents and SecureClientGateways; includes 2X ApplicationServer Enterprise with Universal Printing, and is upgradable to VDSENT.
  • VirtualDesktopServer Enterprise Edition (VDSENT) – 3 servers per farm, with unlimited Publishing Agents and SecureClientGateways, desktops and virtual guest OS’s. Allows multiple servers per farm – is upgradable by adding additional servers (VDSAGENT), with a successive cost depending upon the number of additional servers added.

We’ve also made additional licensing changes to better support our customer base:

  • Version Upgrades part numbers have been discontinued; customers with valid Upgrade Insurance (UPIN) will not be effected.  If no Upgrade Insurance is available, new full versions can be purchased after major product releases.
  • Entry-level 2X ApplicationServer and 2X VirtualDesktopServer products include 2X Universal Printing and Scanning. Prices for 6+ servers are available upon request.
  • 2X Loadbalancer pricing for 8+ servers are pro-rated per the number of terminal servers; 2X ThinClientServer pricing is pro-rated per the number of managed devices for 100+ devices. Prices are available upon request via sales@2x.com.

Note: actual quotes are valid until their expiry date.
