Thanks to more than 35 years of experience in accessing Bull hosts G&R can offer a proven, robust gateway with unbeatable performance and scalability that runs on your choice of Windows, AIX/UNIX or Linux systems.
Ggate replaces proprietary gateways based on specialized hardware. It can completely replace a Bull front-end, and many customers have already cut their cost of operation and increased their performance by doing so. Ggate is qualified for all Bull systems, including the new Intel-based GCOS7 (Diane) and GCOS8 (NovaScale) systems. Third party clients, both terminal emulators and applications, connecting by Internet terminal handling protocols (Telnet, TNVIP) continue to function as before, except that they benefit from the greater throughput and shorter response times offered by Ggate. Ggate supports both client and host initiated connections, so it can accept host print or file transfer connections initiated from the Bull host.
G&R clients all take advantage of the higher throughput in Ggate:
GUFT for native Bull high-speed file transfer initiated by client or by the Bull host
Gspool for accepting large volumes of host print efficiently and reliably
Connections from G&R clients can be made fail-safe by installing Ggate on multiple servers, and introducing Gproxy to provide load-balancing and license sharing. This ensures that all clients can connect, even when a Ggate system is down because of a failure or for maintenance. The connections can also be secured by SSL standard encryption protocol.
