Application Delivery Benefits

— Brought to you by the 2X Cloud Computing Team —

With growing internal IT demands, businesses face a tough challenge of scaling up available resources to meet datacenter needs. The introduction of cloud computing technology has offered a great advantage for businesses to leverage resources. Virtualization is one of the important benefits offered. With a virtual datacenter infrastructure, you have the flexibility to utilize virtual desktops and application delivery to the fullest.

What is Application Delivery?

Application Delivery is a type of software distribution that is dynamically done on a network. Streaming software applications are installed on virtual machines using an Application Delivery Controller (ADC). The end user has the flexibility to access applications from the office, home or when traveling remotely. While the primary reason for businesses to adapt application delivery is to reduce costs, the agility it brings to business processes is also making everyone move to a VDI.

What does Application Delivery offer businesses?

Scalability, performance, agility, security and cost-effectiveness are some of the vital benefits offered by an application delivery system. These benefits are listed in more detail below.

  • Scalability and Agility

Scalability is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Application Delivery. By scaling up resources, businesses can overcome datacenter challenges. In addition, business processes can be integrated to optimize the entire infrastructure. Virtual desktops and application delivery bring greater levels of agility to business processes. Certain features like rapid deployment of applications and the ability to dynamically update software make it the right choice for businesses of all sizes and types.

  • Device-Independent Applications

With virtual desktops, devices work on difference operating systems. Multiple applications can run on a single machine. Applications become device-independent and communication of data between heterogeneous networks becomes possible. With a powerful and intuitive RDP server such as 2X Remote Application Server, you can deploy windows based applications that can be accessed from MAC devices too.

  • Centralized Management

Another benefit of working with application delivery is the centralized management of software apps. From a single dashboard, you can monitor and manage all applications intuitively. Moreover, applications are not installed on the end-user machine. Virtual machines can access them easily using a RDP without the hassles of downloads and installation procedures. While the performance and load times are enhanced, application availability is effectively improved.

  • Reduced Costs

Reduced physical servers and datacenter resources lower the cost of ownership. In addition, the business performance is taken to a new level. As these applications are compatible with multiple operating systems, you get the flexibility to use same machines for multi-tasking purposes. If you use a versatile virtualization product like 2X Remote Application Server, you can deploy applications that are compatible with major hypervisors like Citrix, Microsoft and VMWare. Optimized resources result in higher returns on investments.

  • No Compromise in Security

Today, businesses have to allocate considerable amounts of time and money to network security. Increasing network intrusions and online threats negatively affect the performance of a network. With a VDI, application delivery is performed on secured networks. The VDI makes use of world class security solutions to deploy software securely which is not feasible for businesses that run physical servers.

2X Software offer a powerful application server solution which can seamlessly and effectively deploy virtual desktops and applications. 2X Remote Application Server is engineered using cutting edge technologies to deliver highly scalable VDI solutions. Download 2X Remote Application Server to deliver virtual desktops and applications from a central location, providing continuous availability, resource-based load balancing and complete end-to-end network transparency for administrators.
