GraphOn Announces Availability of GO-Between; Add-on Brings UNIX Access to Microsoft Terminal Server Users.
NEW YORK, PC Expo, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation today announced that their latest thin client/server product, GO-Between, is scheduled for general availability concurrently with the release of Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 operating system, Terminal Server Edition. Designed as an add-on for Terminal Server (formerly code named Hydra), GO-Between is now available for evaluation by request from GraphOn. GO-Between is the third offering in GraphOn's family of thin client/server products that provide fast access to UNIX/X applications from any desktop device. GO-Between installs on Terminal Server, taking advantage of the features and benefits of multi-user Windows NT, to allow any Terminal Server user access to UNIX/X applications, with no extra software needed on the user desktop. A Corporation can better manage its transition strategy to the new world of multi-user Windows NT while allowing access to legacy business critical UNIX/X applications. GraphOn's family of thin client/server products help lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) of network installations by allowing efficient access to UNIX/X applications by diverse operating systems. GraphOn's thin client add- on products utilizing GraphOn's highly efficient RapidX protocol and thin client architecture provides easy remote access to UNIX/X applications by to a variety of desktops and PDAs, including all versions of Microsoft Windows, Windows-based terminals, and Java-based Internet browsers. GO-Between Benefits * Instant access to UNIX/X applications from any desktop device connected to Terminal Server. * No software required on desktop. * Thin client (under 300kb) add-on for Terminal Server, reduces system overhead and increases scalability. * Low-bandwidth RapidX protocol, reduces network load, enables modem and Internet connections. * Helps reduce TCO through simple centralized installation, deployment and management. According to GraphOn President, Walt Keller, the benefits of using GO- Between to deliver UNIX/X applications are significant. "MIS managers are reluctant to rewrite their legacy UNIX applications. GO-Between allows them to smoothly integrate Microsoft's latest technology with the existing base of UNIX and X applications, without taking the risk and expense of changing everything at once." John Frederiksen, group product manager at Microsoft Corp. said, "We are pleased GraphOn has released GO-Between for Terminal Server. A corporation can plan and stage their implementation of Terminal Server secure in the knowledge that users will continue to be able to use existing UNIX applications simply and efficiently, while gaining the benefits of the thousands of rich Windows-based applications available off the shelf today." GO-Between installs a Universal X Server on the UNIX host and a sub-300kb thin client add-on to Terminal Server. PCs and Windows-based terminals users can access their UNIX/X applications through Terminal Server as though they were resident on their desktops. With GO-Between, no code needs to be installed in the desktop devices, while the UNIX application operates in its optimum native mode on the UNIX host. Processing and communications load on the Terminal Server is minimized, and scalability enhanced, due to the very thin GO-Between client, and GraphOn's highly efficient, thin wire RapidX protocol. GraphOn will be demonstrating GO-Between at PC Expo in New York at Javits Convention Center, Microsoft Partner Pavilion 2646 from June 16 through June 18.
