Unisys Corp has signed a licensing agreement with Citrix Systems Inc to market Citrix’s WinFrame thin client-server system software. The deal is a major boost to Citrix who only announced that it was developing thin client software in June (CI No 3,186) after licensing its multi-user extensions to NT to Microsoft Corp, leaving many observers wondering what it had left to offer. The agreement applies mainly to Unisys’ Global Customer Services (GCS) group which is marketing the WinPath NT terminal and Aquanta Personal Computer systems, which include WinFrame software and Unisys’s NT-based Aquanta servers. Unisys renamed and jazzed up these servers to enforce its’ commitment to NT (CI No 3,155). Unisys GCS says that relationship enables it to improve manageability and lower costs. Pre-installation of the WinFrame software on Aquanta servers means that users can deploy business critical applications over heterogeneous environments, while running applications on Intel Pentium processors. Citrix and Unisys support both Unix and Windows NT.
