REBOL Internet OS Advantages
Return to: IOS Home Page
- Private Group Networking
IOS creates the perfect environment for group communications. It is direct, private, and free from junk-mail and pop-up advertisements.
- Instant Interaction
IOS provides a "live" environment where changes and interactions happen in real-time. Information and applications are updated as you participate.
- Highly Secure
Designed with security from the beginning, IOS authenticates all users, certifies all servers, and encrypts all network transfers. Read more: REBOL Security
- Dozens of Standard Applications
More than 40 application reblets allow organizations to become immediately productive without writing code. VARs and consultants can rapidly customize and combine applications to meet the needs of their clients and customers.
- File Sharing, Synchronization, Archival
Files are easily shared between users and synchronized to keep every member up-to-date. Files are automatically archived to allow recall of earlier versions.
- X Internet Technology
IOS takes advantage of the power of your local computer to dramatically improve application response time and reduce server and network overhead.
- Machine Independent
IOS runs on more than 25 different systems (hardware/OS), allowing all members of an organization to communicate and access information regardless of the computer system they use. Operation on PDAs, kiosks, and home game consoles will be added in the near future.
- Off-Line Access
IOS applications work when the client is off-line. Users can access their contact databases, conferences, agendas, calendars, and task lists, and other information, even when Internet service is unavailable.
- Easy to Install and Administer
The IOS client installs in seconds, and the IOS server installs on most web servers in about five minutes. Administration is performed remotely through any client that has the appropriate permissions, and new applications are easy to deploy.
- Powerful Language Capabilities
IOS offers the full power of the REBOL language for application creation, semantic data exchange, persistent data storage, and client/server administrative tasks.
- Access to Legacy Applications
IOS can run your existing applications, such as word processors, spreadsheets, or custom applications. When necessary, the server can directly access Oracle or other database and back-end applications.
