Enterprise version available.

The benefits of using XP Unlimited are described in this White Paper.
on Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 2)
With our software your average Windows PC will give you extra productivity
by enabling you to use your system by multiple concurrent users.
The actual number of remote desktops is only limited by practical issues
like the processing power of your system and the amount of internal memory.
The performance that one can expect from a system with our XP Unlimited
software is comparable with Microsoft Terminal Server 2003.
on Windows Servers
XP Unlimited on Windows Server gives you functionality similair
or better then Citrix, but not for the Citrix price tag. Seamless desktops,
Application Control, Web Server for Remote Desktops, and Load Balancing,
all in one package.
Several XP Unlimited servers can work together in a Farm with the objective
to share the load of the users. Once again, there is no limit in our
solution; you can have as many servers work together as you need. The only
limits are within your own infrastructure.
You can mix Windows XP Professional SP2, Vista and Windows Server - all
running XP Unlimited Enterprise, in one big XP Unlimited Farm.
Total Cost of
The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of owning and using several PC's and
servers is determined by three factors:
- The cost of hardware.
- The cost of software /
- The cost of keeping the
PC's and servers running.
When you want to run "up-to-date" software on all your PC's and
servers, you end op buying new hardware and new
software licenses every 2 and 3 years. Your old hardware is still working,
but it can no longer be used for the most recent version of your business
software. Next to this, you need a skilled professional for several hours a
week or day that will assist you in fixing the continuous stream of
problems with the PC's and servers.
When using XP Unlimited, you can cut down on the all the three types of
costs. Suppose you have 50 employees:
- You can still use your old,
"out of date" hardware. You don't have to buy 50 new PC's,
but only 1 or 2 which will be equipped with the XP Unlimited software.
- You don't have to buy 50
new sets of licenses for Windows, Office, mail, virus scanner, etc.
Depending on the license schemes of the software you are using, you
might have to buy only 2 licenses for those 2 new PC's.
- Your old "out of date"
hardware is not running any application anymore. The only thing these
old PC's are doing is a remote desktop session. Therefore, the chances
are much smaller that one of those PC's get
corrupted, infected, instable, etc. Of course, your 2 PC's with XP
Unlimited are now used by all the users, but if you have to worry only
about securing and configuring 2 PC's, the job of PC-maintenance will
be easier and cheaper. Please take a look at Example 2; it describes
an example how you can deal with this risk.
for an Online Desktop Portal
The integrated webserver gives the company an easy solution for an online
desktop portal. Using a browser, employees can surf to the XPUnlimited server and get a company desktop. The
look-and-feel of the online desktop portal and its functionality can be
Run the Application
you want to run
- All the users and all your
applications that are already available on your Windows XP
Professional system, or all the users that are defined in your Domain,
can now use the system using Remote Desktops.
- Most likely your old
DOS-application will run fine on an XPUnlimited
server in combination with Windows XP Pro SP2 or higher.
- Every application that can
be installed on Windows XP Professional can still be installed after
the installation of the XP Unlimited solution. For example, your
average Microsoft Office product will run fine on a System with the XP
Unlimited solution which is not the case with Microsoft Terminal
In these cases, costs are an issue. Consider the use of Open Office.
It works fine on an XP Unlimited server.
Please note: Some software companies do not allow you to use their software
by multiple users. Other software companies want you to buy separate
licenses for each user. You should read all your software licenses
carefully and act accordingly. Our product should not be used to violate
Please note: Some applications are not suited to be run using a remote
desktop. For instance games. Those applications need a (very) fast video card
and (very) fast video processing. Although the technology behind remote
desktops is fast enough for your average office or home application, it is
not suitable for lots of games or (very) fast video-oriented software.
LDAP or other means
for the user administration and authorization
It is possible to use LDAP or other means for the user administration and
authorization. LDAP integration might be interesting for those solutions
where eGroupware, Open Groupware of similar
products are used. The use of LDAP does also nicely combine with the use of
LDAP or other means of user administration and authorization can be
achieved by using for instance www.pgina.org. XPUnlimited
support chaining of another so called gina.dll.
You can deliver one or more Applications to your users or groups WITHOUT a
desktop (Citrix-like functionality). The users are restricted to those
Applications you want them to use. Please download the manual and read the
full potential of our Application Control.
