National Retail Federation Praises 2X Virtualization Technology

2X Software has announced its extensive coverage in the trademark magazine of the National Retail Federation, STORES Magazine, in their March 2010 issue. In his article "Balancing the Load", STORES Magazine writer M. V. Greene notes that "thin-client computing makes sense in retail because industry applications typically do not require full-blown computing protocols", quoting 2X Software CEO Nikolaos Makris as stating that centralized business data solutions can only be implemented "if you have full control of the technology, which means virtualization."

As evidence of the benefits virtualization technology can provide to retailers, the author points to the implementation of 2X virtual computing products at apparel retailer M.J. Soffe, where IT Infrastructure Manager Ian Thieme notes that due to 2X virtual computing improvements, "if there is an issue with the system, we know about it fairly quickly, without have to go out to a desktop and spend a lot of time trying to research what the problem could be."

2X Software CEO Nikolaos Makris stated, "We are always pleased to work with such reputable organizations as the National Retail Federation in explaining the significant benefits of virtual computing solutions to audiences of all types. We look forward to continuing to expand our retail presence, as our products continue to grow retailers' margins through increased IT cost savings."
