Hummingbird, The Open Text Connectivity Solutions Group, pushes limits of UNIX applications with Exceed Freedom 2008

Woking, Surrey - Wick Hill announces that it is now shipping Exceed Freedom 2008, the newest member of the Exceed product family from Hummingbird, the Open Text Connectivity Solutions Group. Exceed Freedom, an add-on to Exceed 2008, utilised by millions of users to access their mission-critical UNIX applications, empowers users to collaborate on projects in real time.

A first in the UNIX Connectivity market, the innovative design of Exceed Freedom 2008 provides new UNIX desktop sharing capabilities so Exceed users can now easily and securely share their UNIX desktop environments and applications with others over any geographical distance. Exceed Freedom helps organisations improve communication efficiency, reduce unproductive wait time, and accelerate business development and processes.

Exceed Freedom also lets mobile workers suspend and resume their UNIX application environments, so that users can easily gain access to the same UNIX desktop and applications from any location. Exceed Freedom preserves users’ work in progress and keeps valuable data alive in the event of a sudden loss of power or network connection, significantly reducing down time and productivity loss.

With this technology, organisations can leverage the unrealised value of their existing network infrastructure by allowing IT departments to consolidate over-distributed and under-utilized UNIX servers to centralized application centres. With high performance over any connection and seamless integration with any security framework, Exceed Freedom facilitates UNIX resource consolidation without diminishing users’ ability to access business information, regardless of location.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill Group, commented “Exceed Freedom is a low cost addition for remote and mobile users which delivers major productivity and cost savings for organisations with UNIX deployments. It also has the potential to improve access speeds for remote and mobile users. We’ve already seen considerable interest in this solution.”

Eugene Cherny, General Manager, Hummingbird, the Open Text Connectivity Solutions Group, said: “As the leader in the market for UNIX access solutions with products reaching over 90 percent of the Global 2000 companies, our mission is to provide software solutions that help increase their competitiveness regardless of which market they are in. Adding to 20 years of innovation with our Exceed product family, we are extremely proud of the release of Exceed Freedom, designed to address real-time collaboration, mobility and resource streamlining, with the traditional quality and integrity that our customers have come to expect. Today’s announcement illustrates our ongoing commitment to deliver innovative enterprise-focused solutions to our customers.”

Exceed Freedom is available now from Wick Hill resellers. Prices range from as little as GBP 90 per user, for larger deployments.
