CAMPBELL, Calif., and SEATTLE, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation, the leader in thin client/server technology for UNIX, today announced the opening of a Seattle area office with a complete development team already in place. Eight members of the former Exodus Technologies will form the kernel of the new GraphOn group. Exodus had developed a multi-user NT 4.0 product in collaboration with France's Groupe Prologue. Since Microsoft acquired Prologue's multi-user NT technology, Exodus's parent company, AUGI, decided to remove itself from the software development industry. As a result, GraphOn acquired the established team of experts to enhance and expand the company's current product offerings of thin client/server centric software. "The Exodus team is an excellent fit for GraphOn, giving us an immediate presence in Bellevue, Washington where we see an important future for our technology," said Walt Keller, GraphOn President and CEO. "This group of engineers is an experienced team with a successful track record of thin client/server products." "We were always proud of our engineering team and what we were able to achieve at Exodus," stated Stephen Kangas, former President of Exodus. "I'm glad to see the team will continue working together in a progressive company like GraphOn with the resources and technology to leverage their experience in thin client/server software development." GraphOn's thin client/server products GO-Global, GO-Joe, and GO-Between let users run UNIX/X applications over low-bandwidth connections on Windows PCs, any Java-enabled desktop, and multi-user NT systems, as well as other devices, by launching them directly from web pages and the Internet. GraphOn Corporation GraphOn develops powerful software to speed and simplify network computing and enable efficient thin client applications.
