Transitive Ships Version 1.2 of QuickTransit for Solaris/SPARC-to-Linux/x86-64 With Certification for RHEL 5
Transitive Corporation, the leading provider of software that enables transportability of applications across multiple processor and operating system pairs, today announced the release of Version 1.2 of its innovative QuickTransit for Solaris/SPARC-to-Linux/x86-64 solution. Transitive, which established a partnership with Red Hat, Inc. in 2006 and is a member of the Red Hat ISV Partner Program, also announced that this new version of its QuickTransit software is now certified to run on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 operating system.

Transitive's close relationship with Red Hat will help enterprise IT managers accelerate datacenter consolidation projects that involve replacing legacy SPARC-based hardware with more cost-effective industry-standard servers running Linux. Transitive's QuickTransit software overcomes a major barrier to datacenter consolidation projects -- legacy application migration -- because it allows native Solaris/SPARC applications to run unmodified with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 on x86- or Itanium-based servers.

"The release of QuickTransit for Solaris/SPARC-to-Linux/x86-64 Version 1.2 is a significant milestone for Transitive, and its certification on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is a feature that will delight many of our enterprise customers," said Ian Robinson, vice president of marketing for Transitive. "Transitive's Red Hat partnership will provide our global customers with confidence that their QuickTransit deployments with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be fully supported by Transitive and backed up by Red Hat."

The worldwide drive for increased IT efficiency and reduced datacenter carbon footprints has led most IT managers to define a proactive datacenter consolidation strategy that requires decommissioning of legacy hardware and the migration of workloads to more energy-efficient, industry-standard platforms. The award-winning QuickTransit product line makes such transitions faster and easier, and provides support for the most common workload migration paths being adopted by enterprise customers.

Transitive's unique and innovative QuickTransit for Solaris/SPARC-to-Linux/x86-64 solution makes it possible for x86-based servers to run the extensive selection of commercial and in-house Solaris/SPARC applications, without modification to their source code or binaries, with full functionality and in a way that is completely transparent to end-users and system administrators. Most importantly, the performance of translated applications on x86 servers is comparable to that on the latest Solaris/SPARC servers and significantly faster than older Solaris/SPARC hardware.
