The Cheetah Web Server achieves the highest performance in the industry
using an advanced multi-threaded architecture.  This architecture reduces
the process overhead associated with multiple concurrent Web server
sessions, and results in substantial performance improvements over other
Web servers.

Cheetah is also the easiest Web server to setup and manage in the
industry    today.  The secure HTML management interface and flexible
user access
control allow Webmasters to easily manage the Web environmentremotely
through
the corporate intranet using any Web browser.Administrators already
familiar
with TGV's industry-leading MultiNet TCP/IP software will also appreciate
Cheetah's integrated management utilities. The Cheetah Web Server
includes
complete HTML-based documentation.                                      

Web site developers can easily create complex Web sites using Cheetah's  
     extensible development environment.  The Cheetah Web Server's  
optimized      support for the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) guarantees
low overhead        operation.  Support for the Spyglass Application
Development Interface (ADI)  enables developers to achieve significant
performance gains for add-on Web    applications and databases.          

"Our new Cheetah Web Server for OpenVMS capitalizes on years of
experience    providing server-based networking solutions to the OpenVMS
market," said  
Craig A. Conway, TGV's President and CEO. "Cheetah demonstrates that
