South East Water, provider of water to over two million customers in southeastern England, have appreciated an 80% savings on terminal server-based application and desktop delivery by using 2X VirtualDesktopServer, a highly efficient, low-maintenance Citrix replacement.

By switching to 2X, South East Water replaced their expensive per-user licencing structure for a highly-affordable 2X per-server licensing model, allowing the deployment of business applications to desktops within minutes. The 2X licensing model has already provided substantial cost savings and the added efficiency has also reduced South East Water’s application delivery costs to a fraction of what it was previously. 2X delivers applications to over a 1000 users at South East Water, which compromises a large percentage of the water utility’s staff and contractors.

The seamless delivery of multiple applications was critical to South East Water’s IT strategy when it merged with Mid Kent Water in 2007. While developing an application delivery approach, the group sought lower costs, quicker implementation and easily manageable alternatives to its existing Citrix solution, which lead them directly to 2X.

“The 2X platform is far easier to maintain, providing reduced administration and considerably quicker application deployment,” said Dean Ashton, IT Infrastructure Team Leader, South East Water. “When we deployed 2X, it was installed, running and provisioning applications the same day, when we’d typically expect a lag of several weeks after implementation. We were also astounded by the savings 2X server-based licensing could deliver to our bottom line.”

2X provides a simple management interface and because no training is required, the implementation reduced the pressure on South East Water’s IT department as any member of the team can now deliver applications quickly, and with short notice. In comparison, Citrix required a higher skill set and many delays which decreased staff productivity.

“Server-based computing is rapidly accelerating as a way of reducing the desktop IT burden and cost in many organizations, but there is a danger that the cost of the application delivery solution itself will reduce total ROI,” said Paul Robinson, UK Managing Director, 2X Software. “Many organizations like South East Water are realizing that per-user licensing and complex systems are not viable if they seek significant savings and benefit from radical changes in IT delivery.”
