The Information Server bundles the company's Cheetah Web Server with its Web Clusters clustering technology to provide balancing and replication of content among multiple servers. The company says that Cheetah's multithreaded architecture cuts operating system overhead by simultaneously processing multiple incoming connections.
The Enterprise Server adds graphical domain name system (DNS) configuration for managing IP addressing, an industry first according to TGV officials. It also includes a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol server that combines the DNS naming features with dynamic configuration of hosts.
Both offerings are aimed at corporate intranets and will run on OpenVMS, Solaris, Windows 95, and Windows NT.
The Cheetah Web Server will be available as a standalone product in the first quarter priced at $295. The Information Server will be available in the second quarter of 1996, with prices starting at $995. The Enterprise Server is also set to ship in the second quarter, but the company has not yet set pricing.
Evaluation versions of all three offerings are available now from TGV's Web site.
