Dallas, TX – June 17, 2010 – 2X Software today announced the release of its Linux-based 2X CloudClient operating system.
Its simplicity makes the 2X CCOS one of the world’s most user-friendly operating systems, allowing users access to applications, virtual desktops and the Internet from PCs, laptops and thin client devices. It converts PCs, notebooks, netbooks, thin clients and other devices into clients that instantly deliver web applications, virtual desktops and published applications directly to where they are needed. The 2X CCOS installs to USB devices, CDs, local hard drives and as a network boot OS via PXE boot.
“With the experience we have gained in the thin client OS market, we are proud to release the first hardware-independent cloud and VDI-focused OS,” explains Paul Gafa, 2X Software’s Chief Technology Officer. Nikolaos Makris, CEO of 2X Software, added that “in the future, we are planning to replace the desktop-like user experience with easily predefined remote connections, much like television channels. This will make the 2X CCOS the fastest, simplest and most compatible way to connect to any VDI or cloud infrastructure.”
