“Cost-cutting was the main factor in choosing 2X software. We were surprised by 2X’s reasonable pricing compared to that of Citrix. And 2X helped maintain high productivity with an increased number of users.” Lapirov Mikhail Managing Director YARSTROYREZE LLC.
YARSTROYREZE effectively implements 2X Remote Application Server for publishing applications and working in a secure connection mode at a cost-effective price.
YARSTROYREZE is a leading Russian company in the real estate sector. The company specializes in leasing, repairing, maintenance, selling and renting of construction machinery; wholesaling of wood glues; and renting real estate. In an area of 1.5 hectares of land and 3500 m2 and with a leasing portfolio of 100 million rubles, share capital of 25 million rubles, more than 600 thousand euros in foreign trade and more than 8000 recorded working hours in 2012, Yarstroyreze has made its mark in the Russian real estate sector.
For Yarstroyreze, the main purpose of remote networking was to publish applications. The company uses two servers based on Windows Server 2003 and Ubuntu Server 12.04, which are also used as file servers and database servers. Windows Server 2003 built-in terminal server was purchased along with 7 device licenses and 3 remote desktop licenses. Ubuntu 12.04 is installed on users computers. This solution worked efficiently until the number of users and hence the server load increased. Moreover, working with remote desktop caused additional problems as far as the users were concerned. The company needed a simple and cost-effective solution to publish applications.
The company chose 2X software to publish applications remotely. Initially, 2X client for Ubuntu was installed on user workstations to grant access to Windows Server 2003 remote desktop. Later, Windows Server 2003 was replaced with 2X Remote Application Server. The company has 7-10 concurrent users working on a 32-bit server, and does not use any other virtualization platform.
2X Remote Application Server effectively replaced earlier remote desktop solutions. It was able to handle high server load with an increasing number of users, which was very important as it eliminated the need to change servers. The company’s main requirement was to publish applications and work in a secure connection mode and this was fully satisfied by 2X. Another reason to choose 2X became immediately evident as soon as a Yarstroyreze manager downloaded a demo version: after switching to 2X, technical problems weren’t solved, they just disappeared.
Cost-cutting was the main reason for switching to 2X software. By deploying 2X ApplicationServer XG, Yarstroyreze realized that the 2X product handles higher server load efficiently on remote publishing tasks while being highly cost-effective. The company was surprised at the reasonable pricing offered by 2X. With 2X Remote Application Server, the company saved 70% of the cost compared to the previous solution. The 2X solution was simple and there were no technical issues; high productivity was achieved.
