2X Software, the global virtual computing software developer, and ColumbiaSoft, leading provider of document management software, today announced their alliance to provide software solutions to implement document control measures while reducing costs and easing administration.
“Increasingly, our customers are finding that software virtualization is a great way to maximize software investment by reducing the need for hardware and opening up new remote connectivity options,” said ColumbiaSoft executive vice president, David Pogue. “We’re quite excited to be working with 2X Software, one of the real innovators in the today’s virtual computing industry, so that customers can easily virtualize our document management solutions.”
“We are pleased to partner with ColumbiaSoft to leverage 2X virtual computing technology advantages in improving virtual document management,” explained 2X General Manager for the Americas, Scott Sims. “By giving users the ability to access critical applications remotely, with the same look and feel as their local desktop, application providers such as ColumbiaSoft can use 2X virtual computing products to effectively expand the reach and reliability of their interaction with users.”
Using 2X Software’s virtual computing offerings, businesses can extend document management and other software applications virtually over networks to users virtually, without installing applications on individual desktops. This allows for a centralized approach that eases application management, improves security, maximizes performance, and opens up new options for users to connect and work remotely.
Delivering ColumbiaSoft’s Document Locator virtually using 2X solutions, businesses can enjoy the security and functional advantages of a server-based document management system with the remote accessibility of a web-hosted solution. This allows, for example, businesses with sensitive proprietary records with strict regulatory requirements to maintain files securely on on-site servers, while providing full access to users via their virtualized network.
Companies have a range of 2X networking options to choose from when constructing a virtualized environment, including the 2X VirtualDesktopServer, allowing delivery of virtual desktops and applications, the 2X ApplciationServer for centralized publishing of terminal server applications, the 2X ThinClientServer for Windows and Linux, for the central deployment, configuration and management of thin clients and user connection settings, and the 2X LoadBalancer for terminal server load balancing, increased security and redundancy.
