Hash: SHA1

IBM's Transitive buy presents interesting server options

,----[ Quote ]
| Like so many of IBM's moves, the acquisition of Transitive appears to be both 
| an offensive and defensive move at the same time. More on that in a bit. But  
| first, let's review what QuickTransit was when it was launched in September 
| 2004 and how it has been used since then.  
| [...]
|     * QuickTransit for Itanium: supported MIPS, Power/PowerPC, X86, and 
|       mainframe binaries 
|     * QuickTransit for Opteron: supported MIPS, Power/PowerPC, and mainframe 
|       binaries 
|     * QuickTransit for X86: supported MIPS, Power/PowerPC, and mainframe 
|       binaries 
|     * QuickTransit for Power/PowerPC: supported MIPS, X86, and mainframe 
|       binaries 



IBM gets into server transit business

| IBM uses Transitive's technology in its PowerVM Lx86 - previously System P
| Application Virtual Environment or PAVE - product which enables Linux X86
| workloads to run on PowerPC hardware. The technology could be used to let
| mainframe Linux apps run on PowerPC too.


IBM Announces Plans to Acquire Transitive

,----[ Quote ]
| Transitive is a leader in cross-platform virtualization and a pioneer in
| developing technologies that allow applications written for one type of
| microprocessor and operating system to run on multiple platforms -- with
| little or no modification. As a result, the technology will enable customers
| to consolidate their Linux-based applications onto the IBM systems that make
| the most sense for their business needs.


Teaching Everyone to Speak Big Blue

| With Transitive’s technology, it would be very easy for I.B.M. to step up
| existing efforts to lure H.P. and Sun customers to its own servers. And if
| those other translation programs languished in I.B.M.’s vault, well, no one
| at Big Blue would shed any tears.
