Dallas, TX, Feb. 22, 2011 - Bolstering its support for cloud solution providers, 2X Software today announced a partnership with Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale infrastructure-as-a-service provider, to provide 2X ApplicationServer functionality for joint customers faster and more affordably.
Managed service providers, IT solution providers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators can now trial and deploy preconfigured 2X Software-based application delivery solutions quickly and efficiently from Artisan Infrastructure's ecosystem, including a catalog of cloud solution templates.
'2X Software partnered with Artisan Infrastructure to remove any customer uncertainty in accessing hosted applications remotely,' said Scott Sims, 2X General Manager for the Americas, based in Dallas. 'By giving users full control of their cloud environment, Artisan Infrastructure serves as a valuable strategic partner for our rapidly-growing customer base of partners moving into the cloud solution space.'
The 2X ApplicationServer tunnels any Windows application or desktop to remote computers, including Mac and Linux desktops, without the need to install the application or desktop to each user's machine. This provides significant savings on administration and support.
Artisan Infrastructure enables solution providers to retain complete security, control and autonomy while choosing, deploying and managing their own cloud solutions through Cornerstone, the company's virtual private data center platform.
'The addition of the 2X ApplicationServer solution to our ecosystem fills a critical need for our customer base that is looking for a straight forward application delivery model,' said Brian Hierholzer, president and CEO of Artisan Infrastructure. 'The solidification of this relationship comes as a result of the joint work both parties are currently doing with joint customers. Now we can share this work with the solution provider community at large.'
2X Software and Artisan Infrastructure are hosting a webinar for managed service providers, IT systems integrators and other ISVs to describe the benefits and value of their partnership to the channel. Webinar participants will receive a 15-day, no obligation, trial of the 2X Software solution and the Cornerstone Virtual Private Data Center from Artisan Infrastructure. The webinars are scheduled for Wednesday, March 2nd and Friday, March 4th at 1:00 central standard time. Please register for the webinar at https://www.2x.com/webinar.
