CLEARWAY ANNOUNCES NITRO 2.0 BETA - SPEEDS WEBSTAR SERVERS
July 8, 1998, New York City, Macworld Expo- ClearWay Technologies today
announced ClearWay NITRO PowerPlug 2.0 BETA 1, a powerful new version of
ClearWay's performance boosting plug-in for WebSTAR Web servers. NITRO
PowerPlug 2.0 delivers an explosive new level of performance by
accelerating every server hit, including HTML, GIFs, JPEGs, and plug-ins.
NITRO PowerPlug 2.0 makes WebSTAR respond up to twice as fast, process more
hits per second, and run plug-ins at dramatically accelerated speeds. NITRO
PowerPlug 2.0 makes most WebSTAR servers visibly faster and more
responsive. Free demos are available from (http://www.clearway.com/NITRO/).
"For professional Webmasters, speed matters. When we saw the incredible
response to the acceleration of NITRO 1.0, we knew we were on to something
hot," said Mark Kriegsman, president of ClearWay, "NITRO PowerPlug 2.0
delivers a new blast of speed for WebSTAR. It's going to surprise a lot of
Webmasters - it really does make every hit faster."
NITRO PowerPlug 2.0 accelerates WebSTAR in three distinct ways:
- NITRO 2.0 cuts WebSTAR's latency by up to 50%, increasing the server's
response speed for each hit,
- NITRO 2.0 increases WebSTAR's processing efficiency, allowing the server
to complete processing of more hits faster, and
- NITRO 2.0 speeds the execution of WebSTAR plug-ins such as SSI, Lasso,
and Tango by up to 200%.
Version 2.0 will be a free upgrade for owners of version 1.0, which is
currently available for US$99.00. Version 2.0 will be available July 31st
