Transitive Joins Interop Vendor Alliance to Accelerate Deployment of Cross-Platform Virtualization in Enterprise Datacenters

Transitive® Corporation, the leading provider of cross-platform virtualization solutions, today announced it has joined the Interop Vendor Alliance, a community of software and hardware vendors working to enhance interoperability with Microsoft systems. Transitive’s participation in the Interop Vendor Alliance underscores its resolve to facilitate enterprise customer deployment of applications with Microsoft systems.

“Microsoft is pleased to welcome Transitive into the Interop Vendor Alliance,” said Sam Rosenbalm, director, Interop Vendor Alliance for Microsoft. “Transitive’s cross-platform virtualization solution is an important addition to the alliance which benefits our mutual customers.”

Transitive’s QuickTransit® cross-platform virtualization solutions allow 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 computing platforms, enterprise datacenter 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. Such quick and easy workload replication provides the basis for cost-effective business continuity solutions, including disaster recovery, scalability and dynamic workload re-balancing.

“Transitive has a strong track record of working with industry leaders to bring the benefits of cross-platform virtualization to customers,” said Ian Robinson, vice president of marketing for Transitive. “The collaborative spirit of the Interop Vendor Alliance is very much in keeping with our goal to enable the standardization and consolidation of computing resources in a fully-virtualized datacenter environment.”

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 enterprise product line includes QuickTransit for Solaris™/SPARC®-to-Solaris™/x86-64, QuickTransit for Solaris™/SPARC®-to-Linux®/x86-64 and QuickTransit for Solaris™/SPARC®-to-Linux®/Itanium®. 

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: .

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: .
