2x Software Ltd. bringing VirtualDesktopServer 9 to webOS

Need more proof of how prominent HP’s presence in the enterprise sector is? Look no further than this press release from developer 2x Software Ltd., announcing plans to support webOS with it’s VirtualDesktopServer 9 application. VirtualDesktopServer 9, apart from landing you huge points in a game of Scrabble, will give webOS users access to a host of different virtualization platforms, including VMware, vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Sun VirtualBox, Windows Remote Desktop, and many more. 2x states their aim is to allow HP’s new mobile hardware to be “enterprise-ready upon release” by allowing access to a wide range of secure environments across webOS devices.

Nikolaos Makris, CEO of 2x states in the press release that, “ we plan to also provide webOS users with instant mobile access to the business-critical applications they need, continuing 2X Software’s commitment to provide application and desktop delivery to any device, from any location.”

If this news sounds familiar, you probably recall enterprise developer Citrix making a similar announcement on February 9th, just hours after HP’s Think Beyond event. That’s right folks, not one, but two major enterprise-facing software developers are competing on webOS before the hardware has even hit the market. This is certainly a far cry from the days when webOS users couldn’t even see a light at the end of the tunnel for document editing on their platform of choice. Clearly HP takes enterprise very seriously. Software developers are taking notice, and webOS is making huge strides in that direction because of.
