ViewNow X Server



Business Challenge
While Microsoft Windows remains the leader in desktop operating
systems, most of the backend operations of leading organizations
take place on large host and mid-range servers. Many of these large
servers are UNIX/Linux based and need to be accessed remotely on
Windows desktops using X Windows. Bridging the gap between
these Windows desktops and the backend systems while at the
same time keeping costs down has been a problem for many
organizations. Additional pressures on the need for access to UNIX/
Linux based systems are:
a. More attention to IT expenditure; needing to lower the cost of
ownership of the desktop machine
b. Growth in multi-platform software packages that requires
companies to be OS-agnostic and indifferent
c. Rapidly growing deployment of JAVA based enterprise solutions,
which is highly cross-platform
d. Availability of cloud based software-as-a-service hosted
offerings which most often are offered on UNIX/Linux platforms.
e. Growing usage of virtualization solutions using UNIX/Linux
f. Use of UNIX/Linux versions of speciality appliances
g. Established and growing market of Apple Mac-OS™ based systems
