CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation and Conexus Pty Ltd today announced they have entered into an agreement for Conexus to distribute and market GraphOn's products in Australia and New Zealand. Conexus will be the master distributor for GraphOn's GO-Global(TM) PC X server and GO-Joe(TM) Java X server. GO-Global and GO-Joe are the world's first and only thin client X servers. GO-Global is implemented as a Windows application while GO-Joe is a Java applet. By utilizing GraphOn's adaptive RapidX(TM) technology and thin client protocol, GO-Global and GO-Joe provide UNIX(R)/X application access from PCs running Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT, and IBM's OS/2, as well as any Java-enabled desktop, such as Network Computers and Web browsers. GO-Global and GO-Joe's architecture removes the need for fat client X servers on the display device. "We are delighted that Conexus has agreed to distribute our product," said Zdravko Podolski, VP of Strategic Alliances at GraphOn. "I have worked with Conexus before and have tremendous admiration and confidence in their marketing and distribution skills." David Murray, Conexus President and Managing Director said, "We showed GO- Global at the Australian UNIX User Group conference last week in Queensland. The concept of 'fat free X' was incredibly well accepted. Many AUUG members could see immediate benefits to reduce LAN load and for rapidly increasing the speed of remote communications, while maintaining X as the network protocol. The fact that it outperforms ICA, which has been the remote protocol of choice in recent times, was seen as a major advantage. While the X market continues to grow, GraphOn's GO-Global and GO-Joe introduce a new performance dimension to the X marketplace previously thought impossible." GraphOn Corporation GraphOn, founded in 1982, develops powerful software to speed and simplify network computing and enable efficient thin client applications. GraphOn designed and manufactured the first thin X terminal and has since evolved into a software company. Its products include GO-Global, the world's first thin client X server for PCs running Microsoft Windows, and GO-Joe, the world's first thin client Java X server. GraphOn has strategic relationships with major UNIX system vendors, network computer and terminal vendors, system integrators, and software companies. GraphOn's customers are primarily Fortune 1000 corporations. GraphOn is headquartered in Campbell, California. Find more data on GraphOn at http://www.graphon.com.
