For decades, servers running the UNIX operating system have hosted the applications that power your business. They range from financial applications that monitor the stock market, to oil exploration applications that display graphical views of geological surveys, to design applications with layout and test capabilities for complex circuits. The UNIX platform supplies the robustness and scalability demanded by these applications.
The job of the PC X server is to tie Windows desktops and UNIX applications together. But today’s technologically mature PC X servers are beginning to show their limitations. Modern IT and business initiatives—such as server consolidation, virtualization, green computing, reliable remote access, and better collaboration among geographically dispersed employees—are driving the need for new capabilities that traditional PC X servers are not equipped to deliver.
Next-generation PC X server requirements fall into one broad category: the ability to support today’s remote, distributed, highly collaborative business environments. This white paper describes these business-critical capabilities in detail. It tells how they can strengthen the value of your business—by enabling you to maximize the value of your UNIX applications. In the final section, you’ll find a table that highlights the capabilities now available in Attachmate’s next-generation PC X server.
