SUNNYVALE, CA – July 21, 2008: StarNet Communications of Sunnyvale, California, a leading developer of Windows-to-Linux/UNIX connectivity solutions, announced the addition of “Session Sharing” capability to its next-generation X-Win32 LIVE PC X server. Session Sharing allows multiple Windows computer users to collaborate on development projects using engineering applications running on networked Linux or Unix servers.
Session Sharing is a critical requirement in industries such as IC design, geo-modeling and defense/aerospace where engineers and scientists in different locations need to collaborate on development projects using high-end graphics design applications hosted on clusters of high-performance Unix and Linux servers.
Traditional PC X servers are unable to facilitate session sharing due to their client-based design. X-Win32’s LIVE sessions use an innovative client/server model that allows multiple computer users to interactively work on the same session, with each user being able to take control of the mouse and keyboard to add their input on the project.
X-Win32 LIVE v. 9.2 contains other improvements, including a faster integrated SSH module offering unmatched data security when connecting to Unix and Linux servers behind firewalls over insecure Internet connections.
“With Session Sharing, X-Win32 LIVE delivers a complete set of session persistency features, including session recovery, background processing, session mobility, session sharing and sessions suspend/resume. Combined with high performance, unmatched security and scores of useful features, X-Win32 LIVE allows customers to significantly increase their productivity over competing solutions such as VNC,” said Steven Schoch, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of StarNet.
X-Win32 LIVE lists at $225.00 (commercial) in volume 1-10. Additional volume discounts are available as well as special pricing for government and educational institutions. X-Win32 LIVE can be downloaded for evaluation from http://www.starnet.com/products/xwin32/download.php.
