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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
