GraphOn offers cost-effective application publishing and Web-enabling solutions that dramatically lower TCO by enabling access to Windows, UNIX and Linux applications from any location on any platform using ultra-thin-client technology.

Founded in 1982, GraphOn Corporation is a publicly-traded company (OTCBB: GOJO.OB) headquartered in Morgan Hill, California. For over two decades, the company has been an innovator and developer of cost-effective solutions that help customers access existing applications from remote locations.

"Enterprises and ISVs have invested heavily in Windows and UNIX applications," said Bob Peterson, GraphOn's COO. "IT departments are asked to do more with what they already have. Tight budgets mean they cannot always afford major reengineering projects to meet Web-enabling and remote access initiatives. That's where GO-Global comes in."

GO-Global is a cross-platform application publishing solution that instantly makes Windows, UNIX and Linux applications fully accessible to users on any platform and any OS. As a simple, ultra-thin-client solution, GO-Global totally eliminates the need for added software infrastructure such as Citrix, Microsoft Windows Terminal Services (WTS) and local X Server software.

"With GO-Global-enabled applications, an enterprise can quickly and cost-effectively reach new audiences and profit from new revenue opportunities," added Peterson. "GO-Global significantly lowers TCO by centrally publishing applications without any code changes - while at the same time leveraging existing network and management infrastructure.

Simplified Application Management
"GO-Global reduces the complexities of application deployment and management," said John Dilworth, GraphOn's VP of Sales and Marketing. "Application problems can be solved in a central location, not at the individual desktops."

For Windows application publishing, Dilworth explained that unlike WTS, multiple GO-Global sessions can run with a single instance of the Win32 subsystem. "And GO-Global publishes only the application's GUI, not the entire desktop," he added. "Our Rapid X protocol only transmits drawing commands to the device and keystoke and mouse events to the server, rather than entire screen bitmaps. This greatly increases speed and efficiency."

Campus-Wide Customer Deployment Saves 93%
Dilworth stated that Garces Memorial, a private four-year college preparatory academy, recently deployed a campus-wide GO-Global solution that centrally publishes a student information system and Microsoft Office applications to older Windows 98 PCs that the customer did not want to upgrade - as well as to Linux desktops.

"I downloaded a free trial from GraphOn's Web site and was pleased at how easy it was to install," said Jim Pace, Data Systems Manager at Garces. "I was amazed that in less than a minute, I was done. I was able to publish my first app in less than two minutes."

The campus-wide deployment proved to be equally trouble-free, not to mention cost-effective. Pace calculates that purchasing GO-Global was 93% less expensive than upgrading the hardware and software at all the desktops.

Migrating to Wireless and Linux Desktops
Garces installed a wireless solution to serve remote buildings. "With GO-Global, our wireless application access was almost instantaneous," Pace reported. "Future plans call for migrating to high-speed wireless throughout the entire school to provide universal access from laptops and PDAs anywhere on campus."

Migration to Linux desktops is also under way. "A number of our PCs are already using GO-Global's Linux client to access Microsoft Office and other applications," said Pace. "We'll be migrating all our desktops to Linux in the near future."

Government, Healthcare, Telcos and More
GraphOn has an impressive list of customers in market segments such as government, healthcare, telecommunications and more. For example, the U.S. Air Force just made a significant purchase of GO-Global. The Air Force intends to deploy the software as part of their program to provide high-performance, secure application access.

Fastrack Healthcare Systems selected GO-Global to Web-enable their applications for home healthcare providers. "With GO-Global, we are now able to bring a new level of service to our customers based on the product's excellent performance," said Fastrack President Spencer Kay. "GO-Global is easier to support and install for our clients than other Web-enabling solutions. We expect greater patient satisfaction from our enhanced application [which] will prove especially beneficial in situations where nurses and therapists need access to patient information on a remote basis."

Focused on a Global Vision
"Our focus will continue to be on lowering our customers' TCO while accelerating ROI," concluded COO Peterson. "We'll continue to evolve our product solutions to meet our customers' needs as they leverage existing applications to new computing models and wireless access."

GraphOn is located at 105 Cochrane Circle, Morgan Hill, CA 95037 USA
