CITRIX REVS WINFRAME, ADDS LOAD BALANCING, ENCRYPTION

By CBR Staff Writer

Citrix Systems Inc has revved its WinFrame Windows NT client- server system software to version 1.7. Citrix has also added load balancing technology, codenamed Heidelberg and the management tools needed to run the increased numbers of users. It also includes the ability to view multiple WinFrame servers in a single system image. The load balancing will come as an optional add-on, as will encryption for the Intelligent Console Architecture (ICA) protocol when version 1.7 ships around the start of September. The RSA encryption will be available in both US domestic and exportable versions. Other integrated improvements include a new application manager, system security enhancements, application linking and embedding (ALE), which is a plug-in to enable Windows applications to be launched from or embedded in HTML pages, object caching and protocol compression options to deal with high and low-bandwidth networks. Version 1.7 will be free to existing licensees with the exception of the two add-ons. Citrix hasn’t decided how much to charge for those yet. The two add-ons will be charged.
