SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Tarantella, Inc., a wholly
owned subsidiary of The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCOC), announced
today web-based shipments of Tarantella Enterprise 3 and Enterprise 3 ASP
Edition web-enabling software. The new products are immediately available via
the Internet through a free 60-day trial offering
( http://www.tarantella.com/download ).
The new Tarantella Enterprise 3 software provides users with significant
improvements and refinements over previous editions of the award-winning
web-enabling software, while maintaining all the benefits and features of the
Tarantella Enterprise II edition. Never before has it been so easy for users
to access their applications through a web browser.
"The industry response to Tarantella Enterprise 3 has been tremendous,"
said Mike Orr, president of Tarantella, Inc. "Clearly, this is what the market
has been waiting for. This new edition enables customers to support up to four
times as many concurrent users than with Tarantella Enterprise II."
Key New Features in Tarantella Enterprise 3
Tarantella Enterprise 3 software is designed to support up to 1,000 users
per server. Up to 50 servers can be combined into a single array to
intelligently balance the server load across geographically dispersed
networks, providing improved scalability and application performance. In
addition, this release runs on Linux servers; introduces an integrated
AS/400 connectivity pack; and delivers enhanced connectivity for Apple
Macintosh clients, extending the range of servers, clients and applications
The ASP Edition includes all the features of the Tarantella Enterprise 3
software, but has additional benefits designed to meet the needs of
Application Service Providers (ASPs). The Tarantella Enterprise 3 Starter Pack
includes a flexible purchase or rental plan, training, enhanced support, and

"Compaq uses Tarantella's software to provide major telecom customers,
such as MCI WorldCom, with web access to its Telecommunications Management
Information Platform (TeMIP)," said Jacques Conand, Product Manager for TeMIP,
Compaq Corporation. "This new release of the Tarantella software eliminates
the need for additional products to provide web access to Windows applications
in the TeMIP environment, without modification to the Windows application."
"Hewlett Packard is impressed with the business benefits offered by SCO's
new Tarantella product," said Maria Cannon, general manager for HP's
Enterprise NetServer Division. "Tarantella Enterprise 3 software will allow
our customers to leverage the power of their HP NetServer systems to publish
applications throughout the enterprise at a lower cost."
"Enterprise 3 is optimized for large-scale application deployment," said
independent consultant Richard Ross. "The architecture is an advantage because
it provides a fully integrated, one-stop solution, which includes
multi-platform integration. Any company not considering Tarantella
Enterprise 3 is at a competitive disadvantage."
