Press release from:
Donauwörth, Germany, 14 Nov 2012 – 2X Software today announced that Ernst Granzow GmbH, the electrical wholesaler for
professionals in Baden-Württemberg, has deployed 2X ApplicationServer XG to deliver virtual desktops and applications on a
range of devices ensuring high service levels and availability.
Granzow moved from a competitor to 2X and now 240 employees in five locations are provided with individual desktops
through 2X ApplicationServer XG, and most recently on workstations with the Rangee Thin Client OS installed and managed
centrally via the Rangee Thin Client Server. The Load Balancing component of 2X ApplicationServer XG automatically
controls utilisation based on CPU and memory resources.
In addition, 30 external employees now have remote access through 2X ApplicationServer XG to applications such as
Outlook and an ERP solution from Oracle for use on their laptops and iPads of all models. Here Granzow benefits from the
free 2X Client available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Apple iOS and Android devices.
"The solution we originally employed was expensive in terms of both pricing structure and support and was simply
unacceptable in comparison to 2X. With 2X ApplicationServer XG, we enjoyed easy deployment and low training costs and
are now looked after really well," said Marcus Wanner, System Administrator for Granzow,“The administration is so simple,
for example, if an employee requires an additional application, a check is sufficient, and the request is done."
Granzow’s philosophy is characterised by the values of competence, retail loyalty, reliability and speed. Highly accessible
and efficient IT is crucial to their success and with 2X ApplicationServer XG these high service levels are ensured.
Ernst Granzow GmbH, supplies electrical engineering items to industry, with over 20,000 stock items and more than 1.6
million items listed online. The company has offices in five locations and its proprietary fleet of 45 vehicles delivers daily
