"We were looking for a computing solution that would allow those legacy CD-ROM databases to be accessed by our on-campus and remote students," said Dr. Ku Kam Ming, computer officer, Main Library, The University of Hong Kong.
"The libraries have implemented a Citrix WinFrame application server which enables students to access information from on-campus networked workstations and from their homes using the University's dial-up service to access the same information through an Internet browser," continued Ku.
"Previously, our users had to use an on-campus networked PC, running DOS or Windows 3.1 only, to access Libraries's CD-ROM databases," added Ku. "Now, our users may access these databases using Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT, Macintosh, and Unix environments."
"In a very short period of time, our server-based computing solutions have grown from single-server departmental deployments that address the needs of remote users to strategic, enterprise-wide installations that help our customers worldwide increase business value by simplifying their complex IT environments," said Nabeel Youakim, Asia Pacific managing director for Citrix.
