QuickTransit(R) Cross-Platform Virtualization Performance Boosted by Latest Energy-Efficient Quad-Core AMD Opteron(TM) ProcessorsTransitive(R) Welcomes Upcoming Release of Latest Generation AMD Opteron(TM) Processors for Enterprise Customers Seeking Energy-Efficiency and Performance (November 09, 2008)
LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/10/08 -- Transitive® Corporation, the leading provider of cross-platform virtualization software, today announced its support of the upcoming Quad-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processors by AMD (NYSE: AMD), which deliver greater performance within the same power envelope as prior generations of AMD Opteron processors. The new processors will offer greater energy-efficiency and performance to customers running Transitive's award-winning QuickTransit® enterprise product line.
"Transitive congratulates AMD on its upcoming release of the new Quad-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processor," said Ian Robinson, vice-president of marketing for Transitive. "By deploying cross-platform virtualization solutions such as the award-winning QuickTransit for Solaris/SPARC-to-Linux/x86-64 or QuickTransit for Solaris/SPARC-to-Solaris/x86-64 on systems equipped with these latest-generation AMD processors, customers can replace old servers with the latest x86-based technology while avoiding entirely the expense and delays of porting their legacy applications."
Transitive's QuickTransit cross-platform virtualization solutions enable software applications to run on any hardware platform without any source code or binary changes, and at speeds comparable to native ports. By deploying QuickTransit on the latest multi-core enterprise server platforms, CIOs and IT managers can replicate workloads that were previously tied to a single hardware platform and run them unmodified, without incurring the costs and delays of porting projects, and without disruption to end users. Furthermore, such comparatively easy workload replication can provide the basis for more cost-effective business continuity solutions, including disaster recovery, application scalability and dynamic workload re-balancing.
"AMD customers have benefited from Transitive's cross-platform virtualization solutions as cost-effective alternatives to porting legacy applications when upgrading their datacenter hardware," said Margaret Lewis, director, Commercial Solutions and Software, AMD. "Now, even greater efficiencies can be gained by deploying QuickTransit on systems that use our upcoming Quad-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processors."
To address the most typical customer deployment scenarios, Transitive offers three configurations of its QuickTransit enterprise products: QuickTransit Workstation is intended for use on desktop and laptop PCs; QuickTransit Server is used for large-scale datacenter consolidation projects; and QuickTransit Legacy is a specialized version for application re-hosting from older legacy hardware running operating system versions that are no longer supported.
The QuickTransit product line is available from Transitive and its global distribution partners, which include HP, Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Red Hat. Evaluation versions of QuickTransit can be downloaded from the Transitive Web site at: http://www.transitive.com/evaluate.
Transitive also offers a free Adobe® Reader® solution for Solaris/x86 users requiring fully-functional Portable Document Format (PDF) viewing capabilities. QuickTransit for Solaris/x86 with Adobe Reader can be downloaded from the Transitive Web site at: http://www.transitive.com/reader.
