New WebFace products give users a presentation layer that mirrors traditional desktop computing environment.
A Utah company this week launched a suite of presentation-layer products designed to speed up the delivery of applications over the Internet.
Vultus Inc. rolled out its WebFace Solutions Suite, which includes the WebFace Browser Application Platform and WebFace Studio, a stand-alone integrated development environment.
The companys goal is to become the "face of the Web," said President and CEO Michael Meservy.
In that sense, the WebFace suite gives users a presentation layer that mirrors what they see in the traditional desktop computing environment, Meservy said.
The WebFace Solution Suite is designed to enable enterprises to take advantage of the Internet through consistent user interfaces without having to retrain employees on how to deal with Web applications. The result is a consistent and dynamic Web browser environment, according to Vultus.
WebFace Studio enables developers to easily design their own customer user interfaces, Meservy said.
The suite is available now for $5,995 per server for up to two CPUs, and $2,000 for each additional CPU.
Enterprises can also buy a stand-alone version of WebFace Studio for $995 per developer.
Vultus is launching itself into an increasingly competitive space, which includes such established companies as Macromedia Inc., and high-profile newcomers as Curl Corp.
Among its early customers I Novell Corp., for which Vultus is doing some portal work.
