Northern Californian Partner Integrates Tarantella Web-Enabling Technology with Sun, Cisco Solutions

Santa Cruz, CA (8 May, 2001) * Tarantella, Inc (Nasdaq: SCOC transitioning to TTLA), has announced that systems integrator Team Solutions, based in Redding, California, USA has become an authorised partner in the Tarantella Partner Connect program – Tarantella’s global reseller program. Team Solutions will resell Tarantella web-enabling software solutions in the Northern California area.

Team Solutions, with offices in Redding, Chico and Eureka, USA has a full staff of CNEs (Certified Novell Engineers) and MCSEs (Microsoft Certified System Engineers), and is also a Sun Strategic Partner and Cisco Education Partner. The company sells primarily in the educational and government arenas.

"The Tarantella solution is highly complementary to Team Solutions’ existing Sun and Cisco offerings," said Rick Bosetti, Team Solutions’ sales manager. "Tarantella gives us a new multi-platform avenue that just bypasses the Microsoft/UNIX debate entirely." Tarantella software enables Team Solutions to save its clients a significant amount of money by replacing costly processor-heavy PCs with thin clients. "Once it’s installed on the Sun server, everything is via the browser," he said. "The big question used to be, ‘how big is my CPU?’ Now, it’s ‘how big is my pipe?’ When you take into account the total cost of ownership, the PCs just don’t stack up to thin clients."

"Sun resellers around the world are discovering that Tarantella brings unique functionality to the Sun platform by enabling re-centralisation of any application," said Edmundo Costa, vice president world wide channel sales for Tarantella, Inc. "As a Sun partner, Team Solutions knows thin-client computing inside and out, and understands the benefits re-centralisation can bring to companies of any size."

As a multi-platform solution, the Tarantella Enterprise 3 web-enabling software overcomes traditional operating system limitations and expands the reach of what is accessible through a web browser – thus giving IT departments control over the enterprise network. Tarantella Enterprise software is capable of web-enabling applications over Windows, UNIX, Linux, AS/400 and mainframe systems.
