CAMPBELL, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation today announced the release of GO-Global(TM) Version 1.1. with added functionality and platform support. GO-Global, the first thin client PC X server, provides MS Windows users with a high performance UNIX/X solution, over LANs, as well as over low-bandwidth connections, such as remote dial-ups. GO-Global is easy-to-use, and takes seconds to download and install. The multi-user, centralized server enables simple software maintenance and scalability, using minimal memory and CPU resources on the desktop. GO-Global 1.1 The latest version of GO-Global has been beta tested at selected customer sites and has been freely downloadable for evaluation from the GraphOn Web site (http://www.graphon.com) for the last two months. GO-Global 1.1 adds improved functionality for file transfers and cut and paste between MS Windows and X Window applications. In addition, support for IBM RS6000 systems running AIX has been added to the growing list of supported server platforms. The already efficient installation tools have been enhanced to handle differences in customer configurations automatically, without requiring manual input from the user. GO-Global is the first and only software designed for high-speed access to graphical UNIX/X applications from any Windows desktop without running an X server on the PC. GO-Global provides an easily managed, centrally located platform for delivering UNIX/X applications to local and mobile Windows users, remote sites, and branch offices. The thin client software achieves communication speeds that can be up to twenty times faster than other remote access technologies. GO-Global is a native 32-bit, X11R6 compliant, distributed X server built around a thin client architecture and GraphOn's highly efficient RapidX(TM) protocol. It supports all Windows implementations and IBM OS/2. The client residing on the Windows desktop requires less than 300K of memory and minimal CPU cycles. This architecture delivers excellent performance from the lowest powered laptops to the highest-powered desktop PCs. Performance on a Local Area Network (LAN) is excellent, while on remotely connected PCs and on busy networks GO-Global can show significant performance gains over conventional "fat" X servers. Carl Wolf, Vice President of Business Development for Sun Microsystems Computer Company in Mountain View, California, said "I have used GO-Global since the first beta release. It's great at giving me access to all my Sun workstation applications from my PC either at home or on the road." "We use GO-Global for our Advanced Trading System," said Alvin Sylvain, Senior Software Analyst at C-Square International, a West Covina, California, software company serving the energy trading industry. "The performance is much better than getting a PC X server. The PC X server has to emulate the X Windows calls in the Microsoft environment, which is slow. GO-Global does all the work on the Sun SPARCstation, and merely ships the changed bits to the PC. This turns out to be a lot faster." GO-Global Highlights: -- Fastest dial-in low-bandwidth throughput for PC to UNIX/X connections. -- Thin client on Windows requires little memory, no DLLs, VxDs, and minimal CPU cycles. -- Very simple and intuitive installation and operation. -- Centralized, scalable, 32-bit, fully X11R6 compliant. -- One product supports Windows 3.1, 95, NT, Workgroups, and OS/2. -- One product supports SunOS, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, SCO and more. -- One click connection - one click on an icon can automatically connect a remote user to the Internet, enterprise-based mail, and mission critical applications.
