Transitive Celebrates 10 Million Product Shipments Worldwide and Accelerating Momentum in Enterprise Virtualization Market

Continual Innovation in Cross-Platform Virtualization Solutions

Transitive Corporation has achieved a notable milestone as a result of having its products shipped in more than 10 million computer systems worldwide. In addition to attaining one of the world's largest deployments of virtualization technology, Transitive has further expanded the availability of its solutions by signing global distribution agreements with market-leading strategic partners that include HP, Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Red Hat.

"Cross-platform virtualization -- the ability to free software from the processor and operating system it was written for -- has taken its place as one of the pillars of the virtualization mega-trend that is impacting the evolution of every data center," said Bob Wiederhold, CEO and president of Transitive. "Transitive has led in the development of this technology and continues to strongly influence the market. With partners such as HP, Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Red Hat now distributing our products globally, we look forward to delivering our innovative solutions to customers even more rapidly."

"The technology solution that Transitive has provided creates a different path for customers who want to migrate key applications from one server platform to another, as they work to consolidate workloads and to virtualize workloads across the enterprise," said Jean S. Bozman, Research Vice President, IDC Enterprise Platforms Group, Framingham, Mass.

"That virtualization has 'arrived' and is driving server consolidation and disaster recovery in the data center is a given. In terms of hardware virtualization, companies are beginning to look at legacy hardware and evaluate moving those workloads to newer and more powerful platforms," said John Enck, Research Vice President, Gartner.

Transitive's QuickTransit cross-platform virtualization solution enables software applications to run on any hardware platform without any source code or binary changes and at speeds comparable to native ports. The worldwide drive for increased IT efficiency and reduced data center carbon footprints has led many IT managers to define a proactive data center consolidation strategy that requires decommissioning of legacy hardware and the migration of workloads to more energy-efficient, industry-standard platforms. The 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 has fine-tuned its cross-platform virtualization technology to provide a unique solution to traditional workload mobility challenges. By deploying QuickTransit on the latest enterprise server platforms, enterprise data center 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.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
