CAMPBELL, Calif. and SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn
Corporation and New Moon Software today announced they have entered into a
strategic alliance to offer customers the ability to access UNIX X Windows
applications from any PC quickly and easily. By combining New Moon's
innovative Liftoff product which allows multiple PCs to run applications on a
single Windows NT server and GraphOn's GO-Between thin client X server,
customers can access any UNIX/X application from their PCs, with no additional
X server software installation and with greatly reduced network load.
GraphOn's and New Moon's thin client solutions lower the total cost of
ownership (TCO) of distributed PCs by enabling UNIX applications to be
deployed and managed from a central NT Server. This reduces the overhead and
labor costs associated with installing, configuring and updating each PC to
access these applications.
"New Moon and GraphOn offer IT managers the best of both worlds," said
Bruce Mitchell, president and CEO of New Moon Software. "Using these two
technologies, our customers can deploy their business-critical UNIX
applications to every desktop PC in their organization with the touch of a
button and they can manage these applications just as easily. We're excited
to partner with GraphOn to bring this unique capability to the market."
Walt Keller, GraphOn's President, indicated further benefits: "MIS
managers have traditionally been unhappy with the difficulty of installing and
managing fat PC X servers, and with the network traffic X causes. In one fell
swoop New Moon and GraphOn have eliminated both problems."
GraphOn is exhibiting GO-Between at COMDEX/Windows World in Chicago
(Apr 20-23, 1998) in the Microsoft Partner Pavilion, booth 75, and at the Red
Herring COMDEX Venture Forum at the Chicago Fairmont at 3:20 p.m. on April 20.
GraphOn's products will also be demonstrated at IT Forum in San Francisco,
April 28-30, in the IBM Partners Pavilion, booth 744.
New Moon will demonstrate its Liftoff and New Moon Booster products at
Networld & Interop at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas,
May 5-7, 1998.
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 X server for Java. 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.
