"Linux already sports third-party application servers, such as IBM's WebSphere. But now Caldera Systems and SCO's Tarantella Division, are delivering the first application server bundle of Linux and the Tarantella Express application server."

"Application server Tarantella Express is the junior member of the Tarantella family. Out of the box, the new Caldera-SCO combo package will be able to handle up to five concurrent application clients at once. With five-user license packs, the package can handle up to 45 Windows or Unix clients at a time. Those needing to support more and/or mainframe users need to upgrade to Tarantella Enterprise II."

"Tarantella has been available on Linux since February. The combination of Caldera eServer and Tarantella is available for deployment starting this week. Although no pricing has been set publicly, the companies claim that the package will be available by July 20 directly from Caldera and its channel partners, as well from as Tech Data.In practical terms, the result of the Caldera OpenLinux Application Server (OAS) will enable users with a Java-enabled browser to run applications remotely whether the user is on the corporate LAN or fighting to get work done over a 56K modem connection."
