"SCO has created a workgroup-class application server for Unix and Windows systems based on its Tarantella Enterprise II. Named the Tarantella Express, this smaller model supports the same connectivity features as its bigger brother, but supports a limited number of users."

"Tarantella, an application server that runs on a Unix server, acts as an intermediary between the client station and the host server systems. The Tarantella application server communicates with the client using SCO's Adaptive Internet Protocol (AIP); the host servers use either the X Window protocol or Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). That assures compatibility with existing platforms, and the user can access any native Windows or Unix application on the supported host servers, displayed through a browser-based interface."

"This structure, in fact, is the realization of the network and thin-client computing model: the client machine simply runs a display application, while the actual application processing occurs on the host servers."
