The X Factor

Only one PC X server has what it takes

Step aside UNIX workstation. PC X servers on desktop PCs are now fully capable of running the sophisticated graphical apps you once called your own. But after more than a decade of X-focused development, there's one PC X server solution that stands apart from the rest. They call it Reflection X.

Leverage Reflection X's
multi-tier architecture

Render rich, true-to-life graphics with incredible speed. Leave, rejoin, share, and transfer X sessions, thanks to advanced features such as suspend/resume, fault tolerance, and load balancing. Working with colleagues around the world is as seamless as if they were right down the hall.

Reflection X is divided into three distinct modules, each with a unique role and each capable of running on a variety of platforms.

Lighten your workload*

Centrally deploy X and emulation sessions, updates, and configuration packages. Use enterprise directory services, such as Active Directory, to control user access to host applications—without making any changes to your LDAP schema or data.

"Incremental software releases of Reflection X have maintained the high standards that PostFinance has come to expect. And with the release of Reflection X 2014 the potential for bandwidth savings and still greater performance is an indication of Attachmate's commitment to continual improvement."
