The Gold Standard in PC and Thin X
Hummingbird has revolutionized X
server technology with Exceed Web.
Reliable, cost effective and secure access to
business-critical applications and information
across enterprise intranets and extranets is
crucial for a broad mixture of users in today's
networks. Exceed Web, delivers secure, high
speed X access in a familiar web browser
interface resulting in better customer service and
reduced overall costs -- for the lowest total cost
Hummingbird Enterprise Now! provides organizations with a complete connectivity
solution that includes a single, flexible enterprise license and a full range of
Professional Services. Using a single enterprise license, organizations can choose
and deploy any combination of Hummingbird connectivity products including
Web-to-Host, Thin X, Terminal Emulation, PC X, and NFS solutions to ease
migration from fat client to thin client connectivity meeting
unique business needs.
Offering centralized management and exceptionally easy X access, Exceed Web
connects to UNIX, VMS and X Window System from a desktop web
Do It All From One Location!
Exceed Web is a secure, centrally managed Thin X solution that gives network
administrators the power to easily and efficiently configure, deploy and meter user
access to enterprise host systems.
JuMP, a unique, object-oriented, Java-based middle tier management
platform, sets Hummingbird apart from all other web-based connectivity
products in the market. JuMP is the core architecture of Hummingbird's
Thin Client Connectivity solutions and consists of modular components
that are based on open, industry standards to ensure interoperability,
compatibility and platform independence.
- Integrated Web and LDAP Server
- License Metering
- Intuitive Web Desktop
- Access Control for Users and Groups
- Common Fat and Thin Management Interface -- Jconfig
- Full Scalability on Windows NT and Unix
Jconfig Delivers On A Promise
Jconfig is a powerful Java-based remote configuration tool and the management
cornerstone for all of Hummingbird's connectivity solutions. Jconfig is the common
management interface for both fat and thin client connectivity, allowing administrators
to remotely access and configure any desktop.
JuMP provides secure firewall traversal with integrated SOCKS technology.
SOCKS is a proxy mechanism that transparently passes data across the
Internet or extranet to an enterprise host within a local network ,while
retaining the integrity of the firewall.
Security is also provided through SSL (Secure Socket Layer) that transparently
initiates a secure TCP/IP connection. A private connection to the JuMP Server is
made with Triple DES (168-bit in North America only) or DES (56-bit) encryption and
ensures the integrity of business-critical information and applications between a
user's desktop and a Linux or UNIX host.
High Performance Design
X Proxy Manager
Advanced, scalable load balancing capabilities for
co-ordination of multiple X Proxy Servers eliminates server bottlenecks.
Exceed Web's lightweight X display can be downloaded on demand and
cached, for conserved network bandwidth and resource efficient desktops.
Administrators can preset the maximum number of X Proxy Servers allowed
to run on a JuMP Server, guaranteeing user connection
Thin X Protocol (TXP)
Exceptional performance on LANs, WANs and
dial-up connections with automatic network packet flow sensing and
display-side rendering. Packet flow sensing reduces the amount of traffic
transferred between the X display applet and the X Proxy Server decreasing
network bandwidth use. The overall performance of Exceed Web is enhanced
with display-side rendering that relieves the X Proxy Server load while taking
full advantage of desktop processing power when displaying graphically
Multiple X Displays
Managing access to multiple remote environments
simultaneously is easy with Exceed Web's multiple X Display support.
Exceed Web also supports the popular startup modes XDMCP (Broadcast,
Query, Indirect), REXEC, RSH, RLOGIN and Passive for simple integration
into any networking environment.
Secure firewall traversal
JuMP, Hummingbird's middle-tier management platform for thin clients, provides secure
firewall traversal capabilities with the integration of it's industry leading SOCKS
technology, dramatically easing the enterprise implementation
SSL 3.0 and RSA-based security
With SSL V3.0 support in Exceed Web,
controlled and secure user access to business-critical applications and information
across the Internet or extranet is ensured. Built in security provides the highest level
of protection available today including Triple-DES and DES encryption with
Diffie-Hellman key exchange.
JuMP now supports Solaris and HP-UX, harnessing the
power of UNIX to deliver greater scalability and support for more users per server. As
with the Windows NT version, JuMP can be scaled via JuMP Add-ons to support an
expanding network with virtually automatic configuration.
Expanded Platform Integration
The new Enterprise Toolkit for JuMP enables
third party JavaTM 2 applets to be developed and tested in a segregated environment,
then distributed to users via the JuMP middle-tier management server. The various
types of Java applets that can be deployed by JuMP include graphical user interface
applets, automation applets and existing customer applets.
Flexibility and Ease of Use
Exceed Web include support for DirectStart, a
powerful feature that instantly connects users to hosts by launching applets from a
desktop icon or embedded URL on a Web page.
