2X Software launches 2X LifeCycle Plus for Windows XP, converting your existing Windows XP PCs into safe, cost-effective workstations.

DALLAS, TX, April 11th, 2014 2X Software, a global leader in virtual desktop and application delivery solutions, today announced that the company has launched 2X LifeCyclePlus, which converts your existing Windows XP PCs into safe, cost-effective workstations. This will provide users with easy and secure remote access using RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) wherever they are and whenever they want. Additionally, users can experience the full benefits of published remote Windows applications and  desktops connecting to 2X Remote Application Server. In this way, the 2X Client for RDP/Remote Desktop seamlessly runs published Windows applications and desktops from the Windows Terminal Server and all major VDI hypervisors, including Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware and Citrix Xen.

“As Windows XP comes to its end of life, most of the actual hardware infrastructure should be replaced. As a matter of fact, more than 30% of existing PCs in business won’t be able to support the latest Windows OS version and applications. 2X LifeCyclePlus allows organizations to leverage on legacy hardware to create a virtual environment capable of hosting the latest version of Windows OS, transforming an old XP PC into a secured client workstation. With 2X LifeCyclePlus, organizations are not only able to solve the Windows XP migration challenge but also have a solution that will support future business initiatives, resulting in greater mobility and increased user productivity to meet the needs of today’s modern workforce.”
