Nearly Triples WebSTAR SSI Speed; Accelerates Tango, Lasso, and Others --
Boston, May 29, 1998 -- ClearWay Technologies today shipped "ClearWay NITRO
PowerPlug 1.0," the completed version of their WebSTAR plug-in that
accelerates the execution speed of all other WebSTAR plug-ins up to 200% or
more. With NITRO installed, WebSTAR SSI runs at nearly triple its normal
speed; WebSTAR Search runs 20% faster. NITRO also accelerates most
third-party WebSTAR plug-ins including Lasso, Tango, and WebCatalog. NITRO
demos can be downloaded from: (http://www.clearway.com/NITRO/)
"Plug-ins are at the very core of what makes WebSTAR great, and NITRO 1.0
really kicks your plug-ins into overdrive." said Mark Kriegsman, president
of ClearWay. "No professional Webmaster should run a live Web server
without NITRO." "We build the fastest WebSTAR software in the world,"
continued Kriegsman. "NITRO delivers our high-performance technology with
your existing WebSTAR plug-ins."
ClearWay is encouraging Webmasters to run their own real-world NITRO tests.
Hundreds of Webmasters have already tested NITRO, and many are describing
their NITRO-boosted servers as "definitely faster," "several times faster,"
and "way faster." ClearWay is publishing contributed "field reports" on the
NITRO Web site. NITRO runs on WebSTAR 2.x and 3.0, on PowerPC and 68K
NITRO costs US$99 per server, $350 for five servers, and site licenses are
$1900; educational discounts are available for five servers and site
licenses. NITRO can be purchased by e-mailing (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by
