Thin client and X server company GraphOn Corp has a new line of connectivity software designed to provide access to Unix applications from Microsoft’s multi-user version of Windows NT, code-named Hydra (CI No 3,112). Unfortunately, Hydra isn’t out yet, although beta versions are set for later this year. Campbell, California-based Graphon was recently acquired by French software house Groupe Prologue SA (CI No 3,250), and Microsoft has rights to use its technology in Hydra, along with that of Citrix Systems Inc. The new product is said to work in a similar way to GraphON’s existing Go-Global thin client PC X server product, narrowing the bandwidth when connecting the boxes by eliminating redundant messages. The X server runs on the Unix box and only the display drivers are exported to the PC, reducing the amount of data going down the wire which the company claims results in faster data transfer speeds. The new software, codenamed Go-Between, runs in conjunction with Hydra, but uses Graphon’s own rapidX connection protocol.
