LAS VEGAS, COMDEX/FALL '97, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation
and Prologue Software will showcase new technology that allows Microsoft's new
multi-user Windows NT operating system (code-named "Hydra") to connect with
UNIX/X(R). GraphOn(TM), the thin client X server provider, and Prologue, an
administration tool/Hydra product developer, will team up at COMDEX to
announce the new software and present their complementary technologies and
combined worldwide distribution capabilities. Code-named "GO-Between(TM),"
the new connectivity software will be showcased at the Prologue Software booth
(S2) in the Microsoft Partner Pavilion (Hydra section).
GraphOn developed GO-Between in response to Microsoft's interest in
interoperability and migrating UNIX enterprises to Hydra. GO-Between allows
organizations to preserve their investment in UNIX applications while
migrating to multi-user NT.
Media may see GraphOn's other products at a special media lunch at COMDEX,
Lunch@Piero's. GO-Joe(TM) and GO-Global(TM), GraphOn's thin client
connectivity software connects Java to UNIX hosts and Windows to UNIX hosts
over any connection with as little as 100k-300k of code on the client. The
software will be demonstrated during the first four days of COMDEX at Piero's
Restaurant, 11:30-2:00 p.m. at 355 Convention Center Drive.
Walt Keller, President of GraphOn, said, "The networking needs of today's
organizations are changing radically. IS managers are demanding a
heterogeneous computing environment that also allows remote access yet is open
to new operating systems. Our work with NT multi-user expert, Prologue
Software, and our long history in adaptive protocol technology positions us as
the provider of the necessary high-performance links that bring enterprise
operating systems together over any connection, including intranets, the
public Internet, and even low-bandwidth remote connections."
To further expand its capabilities in the multi-user arena, GraphOn signed
a letter of intent in September to merge with Prologue Software, a Paris,
France-based multi-user software company. Prologue Software is currently
working with Microsoft on multi-user Windows NT. Prologue Software and Citrix
were the only two companies to obtain an official license of Windows NT code
from Microsoft. Microsoft has since purchased the rights to the multi-user NT
technology Prologue Software developed. Prologue Software currently is
offering Microsoft its expertise in multi-user operating systems to assist in
the creation of the next version of multi-user Windows NT. Prologue Software,
which currently has more than 600,000 users of their proprietary multi-user
operating system in Europe, anticipates the introduction of its installed base
to the thin client world.
Prologue Software's 20-year legacy as an innovator in multi-user operating
systems and portable development environments has enabled it to maintain a
leadership position in the connectivity arena. As early as 1980, Prologue
Software broke through the limits of single-station data processing with an
essential concept: running several applications simultaneously on the same
microcomputer and sharing information between multiple users. The company
will continue to pursue important alliances with recognized technology
partners whose skills complement those of Prologue Software to continue to
build its presence in the multi-user and Internet markets.
