html5 browserIn today’s Everything-as-a-Service model, virtualization and remote networks have a greater role to play. Virtualization has become successful because it optimizes resources while increasing productivity and revenues. Virtualization augmented with remote desktop services enables businesses to seamlessly deliver virtual applications and data onto remote devices. Today, every business is in a transition phase where data, applications, hardware and software are moving into a virtual environment.

HTML5 browser : Challenges with Remote Desktops and Virtual Apps

Remote or virtual applications can be controlled using Windows Terminal Server, which has been renamed Remote Desktop Services (RDS). You can also use hypervisors such as Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere and Citrix XenDesktop. However, you need to install client software on each client device. The downside is that you have no access when you are away from the office, or through a new system. One solution to this issue is to use clientless SSL VPN connections, but these are complex to manage and require additional plug-ins.

2X Remote Application Server offers an easy and secure way to access remote desktops and virtual apps through the 2X RAS Portal.
