Symphony Housing, the largest registered social landlord in the North-West of the UK, has replaced Citrix with 2X ApplicationServer XG to build a cost effective ‘roaming desktops’ solution as part of its post-merger IT environment.

The switch has reduced Symphony’s application publishing budgets by over 80% while creating a secure, easy to manage desktop and application streaming approach, using 2X ApplicationServer XG.

“Scaling Citrix for application and desktop publishing across the organisation just wasn’t financially viable,” said Alan Hughes, Infrastructure Project Manager, Symphony Housing Group. “We also anticipated future cost increases due to the level of management required.”

2X software offers a highly cost effective, platform independent and robust desktop and application virtualisation solution compared to leading market vendors including Citrix and Microsoft. This helps organisations to realise benefits quickly rather than be constricted by expensive licensing models, user complexity and proprietary virtualisation restrictions.

Formed to collectively manage 40,000 homes across the North West, Symphony needed to control desktop access and application profiles for hundreds of users across many different sites and chose a server based computing and thin client approach. Using 2X ApplicationServer XG desktops and a wide range of specialist applications such as CAD and project management tools are streamed across a large number of sites.

Hughes continued,“While most corporate IT purchases turn out to have been oversold and the implementation hassle underestimated, 2X is the one that bucks that trend. It is so simple to install and manage that we had the system implemented within a week and we’re continually finding it can help us in new ways as we develop our merged IT structure.

“Previous system complexity meant that implementation challenges often required more external help than we would have preferred. With 2X we have been able to put our IT consultancy budget to better use, to ensure the entire IT project runs smoothly rather than deal with software implementation headaches.”

Full implementation and transfer to the 2X managed environment was completed over summer 2011.

Paul Robinson, UK Managing Director, 2X Software, said,“Medium sized organisations find that the complexities of desktop virtualisation and application publishing platforms aimed at large enterprises are way beyond their needs, cannot be serviced by leaner IT resources and create complexity rather than reducing it. We’re changing that by offering these organisations simpler tools with a cost effective server based licensing model.”
