SAN FRANCISCO, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation today announced at Sun Microsystems' 1998 JavaOne Developer Conference the release of GO-Joe(TM) Version 2.0 with increased performance and extended platform support. GO-Joe, the world's first thin client X server for all Java-enabled displays (including 4.0 web browsers), provides access to UNIX/X applications without software rewrites or a fat X server on the desktop. GraphOn plans to start shipping GO-Joe Version 2.0 in April of this year. The latest release of GO-Joe has been beta-tested at selected customer sites and is now shipping on Sun Microsystems' latest NetraJ CD distribution. GO-Joe V2.0 employs GraphOn's unified server, which drives all GraphOn's thin clients, including GO-Global for Windows and GO-Between for Microsoft's Windows Terminal Server (WTS), formerly code-named Hydra. In addition, support for IBM AIX and DEC Alpha machines has been added to the list of supported server platforms, which currently includes SunOS, Solaris, HP-UX, and SCO OpenServer. With 100 percent performance improvements and a significantly decreased download time, GO-Joe V2.0, which supports Sun's Java Development Kit 1.1, takes full advantage of the evolution of the Java platform and continues to provide the best solution for fast and easy access of UNIX/X applications from any Java desktop, including web browsers, NCs, and PDAs. By employing GraphOn's adaptive RapidX(TM) protocol, high performance can be achieved over LANs, WANs and even over dial-up. GO-Joe is built around a multi-tier thin client/server architecture with application processing on the UNIX host and graphics displayed via a small applet (under 300K) on the display. Using GraphOn's RapidX protocol, GO-Joe fits into existing environments that include all types of communication pathways and computer environments. GO-Joe's server software is multi-user, fully-scalable, and centrally-managed, preserving the lower total cost of ownership (TCO) sought by IT. "We are pleased to see today's announcement from GraphOn, said Dr. Lew Tucker, Director of Strategic Relations at Sun Microsystems' JavaSoft division. "GO-Joe utilizes the power and flexibility of the Java platform and provides a thin client solution for the desktop." Evaluation copies of GO-Joe are available via FTP from GraphOn's website at http://www.graphon.com, or by calling 408-370-4080. List price for GO-Joe begins at $295.00 per seat.
