"The Santa Cruz Operation Inc. is positioning its Tarantella application broker technology as a platform for application service providers. A new Tarantella version due in May will be offered to ASPs under a novel 'per-hour' pricing model."

"Tarantella, which competes with Citrix Systems Inc.'s MetaFrame, allows any client system equipped with a Java-enabled Web browser to access applications running on diverse server platforms including Windows NT, Unix and mainframe operating systems."

"Chris Clabaugh, CEO of Allegrix Inc., a Santa Clara, Calif.-based ASP, is using Tarantella to combine applications running under Windows, Linux and other operating systems into a seamless whole.
