TRANSIDIOM, WINJA AND J WALK SERVER SOFTWARE TO RUN ON LINUX STRATEGIC OPEN SOURCE OPERATING SYSTEM.
"Many enterprise customers are assessing the reliability, scalability, economics and technical viability of incorporating Linux into their computing architecture," said Andre den Haan, vice president of product strategy for SEAGULL. "In particular, many of our enterprise customers that operate on the mainframe platform have expressed interest in deploying the SEAGULL user and programmatic interface server technology in a Linux environment. Linux support is firmly in line with SEAGULL's strategy to provide customers with powerful, reliable legacy access solutions in an open, flexible and standards-based architecture. As our customers begin to consider Linux for mission-critical projects that require legacy access, SEAGULL products will be there to accelerate the ongoing development of the integrated enterprise."
According to Gartner Dataquest, in 2002 Linux-based servers are expected to grow at least 50 percent over 2001.
"IBM's recent announcement of the zSeries Linux-only mainframe reinforces Linux as a cost-effective operating system for B2B Web application solutions," said den Haan. "We expect that an increasing number of our customers will investigate Linux as an option for their organizations as it matures within the enterprise environment."
Most Global 2000 organizations and government agencies support multi-platform environments. With the addition of Linux support, SEAGULL's user and programmatic interface server technology now runs on all industry-standard enterprise environments, including HP-UX, Sun Solaris and AIX, natively on mainframe and iSeries hosts and on the Windows 2000/NT/XP platform.
"As the first vendor in our sector to offer this expanded choice of platform server support, SEAGULL continues to demonstrate leadership in the legacy application enhancement and integration market," said Kim Addington, SEAGULL's senior vice president of marketing. "We are committed to offering our customers the independence to choose among multiple development and deployment environments to meet the needs of today's heterogeneous IT infrastructure."
SEAGULL offers a full spectrum of legacy emulation, extension and integration solutions used by government and Global 2000 IT to derive rapid ROI from core business applications, with full-lifecycle solutions supporting terminal emulation, user interface extension, Web-enablement, standards-based application integration, and Web services.
Linux support for the SEAGULL server components is currently available on an Early Support Program basis to select customers, and will be phased into the general availability releases of Transidiom, WinJa and J Walk during the Spring and Summer of 2002.
