Business Editors


IBM Technical Developer Conference, Booth 494 -- GraphOn(R) Corporation (Nasdaq:GOJO), ( today announced it has begun shipping GO-Global(R) UX for AIX(R), part of GraphOn's GO-Global family of infrastructure software for web enabling Windows(R), UNIX(R) and Linux(R) applications. GO-Global UX, which includes GO-Global UX for AIX, GO-Global UX for Solaris and GO-Global UX for HP-UX, allows any display device to run UNIX applications over low bandwidth lines as though they were running locally, eliminating the need for complex PC X servers or other emulation software. GraphOn's GO-Global UX boosts application performance and helps to control IT costs, while offering expanded application administration and deployment features, as well as enhanced scalability and security.

GO-Global extends the reach of business-critical applications across an enterprise or the Internet to users anywhere, regardless of location, display device, or network connection. Used by independent software vendors (ISVs) and organizations worldwide, GraphOn's web enabling software provides cross-platform, remote access capabilities and can be run via a browser or a small native Windows client.

Robin Ford, Executive Vice President at GraphOn, said, "As pioneers in web enabling technology for UNIX applications, GraphOn gives IBM developers the world's easiest and most cost effective answer for fast, multi-user remote access to any AIX application. For a fraction of the cost of other more complex solutions, GraphOn provides scalability, security, and robust server-based application administration, with high performance and easy installation." Ford continued, "In today's tight economy as the enterprise seeks to reduce IT overhead, GraphOn's GO-Global provides freedom from application delivery worries, cumbersome rewrites, and complicated installation and support. We let IBM AIX developers return to their focus on development of outstanding applications for the enterprise."

GraphOn has provided solutions for developers and users of IBM's AIX UNIX as far back as 1999 when IBM included GraphOn's technology in its AIX Bonus Pack along with selected additional software packages at no additional charge. The Bonus Pack provided a limited number of full-functioning licenses for GraphOn's software to give developers using IBM's AIX UNIX a way to deploy and execute applications entirely on a UNIX server and provide instantaneous access and use by any Java-enabled PC, device or web browser, without modification to the applications.

New Features in GO-Global UX for AIX

INCREASED PERFORMANCE: GraphOn has further increased high performance by a speed gain of approximately 30% to 100%.

RECONNECT: If a user loses connectivity or wants to suspend their computing session, using GO-Global UX they may later resume the session instantly without having to restart applications. This feature allows users to suspend their activity in one location and pick up where they left off at another time, even from another location with a different computer. This feature can be especially helpful for remote users and in an application service provider (ASP) environment.

SMART PROTOCOL: GO-Global UX automatically detects connection rates and latency and dynamically tunes itself to achieve the best performance over a LAN, WAN, or dial-up connection.

ADAPTIVE GUI(R): GO-Global UX detects screen size and color depth, automatically adjusting the client display accordingly.

APPLICATION PUBLISHING: GO-Global UX provides an easy to use interface for executing applications residing anywhere on the network. GO-Global UX provides the ability to launch an application from a desktop icon, with UNIX applications operating and functioning as any PC application would on the desktop.

WEB-BASED INSTALLER: The GO-Global client (desktop or display device component) can be distributed automatically and installed over the web from a centralized server, providing increased scalability and further maximizing IT resources.

HTTP CLIENT PROXY: GO-Global UX software recognizes proxy servers and will utilize proxy servers when necessary to establish client/server connections.

FLEXlm LICENSING: GO-Global UX supports the industry standard FLEXlm enterprise license manager for easy integration into existing enterprise computing environments. This feature reduces costs and saves management time through centralized license tracking and inventory control.

FILE TRANSFER: GO-Global UX makes exchanging files between display device and server even easier by presenting users with a familiar graphical interface to save and retrieve files, eliminating the need for specific FTP access privileges.

SUPPORT FOR ANDREW FILE SYSTEM (AFS): GO-Global UX supports a location-independent file system that uses a local cache to reduce the workload and increase the performance of a distributed computing environment.
