Users of Sun's Javastation network computer will be able to run Microsoft Windows and NT applications using software from Insignia Solutions. Sun has bundled Insignia's NTrigue X Client for Java with its new devices.
The Ntrigue client is an applet that enables the Javastation to run Windows software via Insignia's NT-based NTrigue server software, which delivers Microsoft applications to various desktop platforms.
This extension of the Ntrigue range is the first fruits of Sun's technology tie-up with Insignia, announced earlier this year. The X Client was demonstated at the Javastation launch in New York and Sun's salesforce will recommend it as a preferred solution to Javastation and Sparcstation customers wanting to run Windows packages.
"Insignia has developed technology that provides Sun customers a 100 per cent Windows-compatible solution running the applications at server performance levels," claimed Steve Tirado, director of marketing at Sun's Java Systems Group. "These applications are available to Sun workstations, Javastations or any Java-enabled browser or desktop." NTrigue incorporates the Winframe Internet Windows software from Citrix, which is partly owned by Microsoft. It also supports Windows on PCs, X terminals, Unix workstations and Macs.
