Continued growth in the European marketplace for server-based computing is driving the demand for solutions which make the most of limited IT budgets. In response, New Moon Systems and adtcom Network Computing today announced a European distribution agreement for New Moon's server-based computing solution, Canaveral iQ. The application management platform provides a simpler, more intelligent and lower-cost alternative to Citrix MetaFrame for the deployment and management of Windows-based applications.
"Until now there has been little choice when it comes to server-based computing. Customers are paying high prices for Citrix MetaFrame features, whether they really need them or not," said Marc Lowe, president and chief executive officer of New Moon Systems. "New Moon's Canaveral iQ provides a server-based computing solution for Microsoft environments which delivers 100% of the most important features required by 80% of the market at a significantly lower cost."
"As a European centre of competence for server-based computing, we are extremely pleased to work with New Moon. New Moon is clearly on the cutting edge of this exciting revolution in IT. The Canaveral iQ solution uses native Microsoft RDP, a non-invasive protocol, and delivers many benefits and real cost savings. Our extensive testing with key customers indicates that the market will immediately embrace New Moon Canaveral iQ," said Tim Goldring, joint chief executive officer of adtcom.
When compared to Citrix MetaFrame, New Moon Canaveral iQ is not only attractively priced, it delivers unique benefits such as a much simpler web-based user interface for painless installation and easy administration. Other features include advanced application usage reporting for optimized purchases of application software. End users experience server-based applications as seamlessly as if they were running locally on their desktops. A key offering of Canaveral iQ is its superior printing solution integrated in an application management platform with outstanding reliability and no loss of quality in the printing output. The results are IT environments with more easily managed software, better application usage control and more satisfied end users.
New Moon Canaveral iQ is available immediately to adtcom channel partners throughout Europe including Germany, UK, France, Italy and Switzerland.
