Citrix Systems Unveils MetaFrame for Solaris

Citrix Systems Inc. released MetaFrame for the Solaris operating environment, the first solution in Citrix's MetaFrame for Unix product line. Last month Citrix released MetaFrame for Windows 2000. MetaFrame is a new application server solution that extends the reach of Unix and Java applications across an enterprise, or from an application service provider (ASP), to users anywhere.

MetaFrame employs the Citrix Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) protocol which enables the deployment of Unix systems, X.11, text, and Java applications across an enterprise or from an ASP, to branch office and mobile workers who previously would not have been able to access such applications.

MetaFrame for Solaris features centralized application management and deployment; Web access, allowing MetaFrame for Solaris to run Unix and Java applications via a Web browser; and support for many types of devices, including PCs, laptops, and palmtops. MetaFrame for Solaris also features many of the same functionality as MetaFrame for Windows, including application publishing, load balancing, and desktop integration.

MetaFrame for Solaris is interoperable with MetaFrame for Windows and can extend applications to most client devices, including 286, 386, 486, and Pentium PCs, Windows-based terminals, as well as non-Windows clients such as DOS, Unix, OS/2, and MacOS.
