TotalView Technologies Partners With International Software Reseller XLsoft Corporation

XLsoft Will Distribute Industry-Leading TotalView® and MemoryScape Debuggers to the Japanese Software Development Market

NATICK, MA and IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - TotalView Technologies, the world's leading provider of scalable debugging and analysis software solutions for the multi-core era, today announced that it has partnered with international software reseller XLsoft Corporation to market its advanced TotalView® and MemoryScape debuggers to the Japanese market. XLsoft will become a distributor for all TotalView Technologies software development products, as well as provide maintenance, documentation and training sessions in Japan.

XLsoft Corporation is a leading software distribution firm for the Japanese and Asian markets that continues to grow as a key player in the international software industry. Founded in 1987, XLsoft is focused on distributing software development tools and utilities. XLsoft has achieved success in presenting the latest American software trends to the Japanese market, as well as advancing intercontinental trends in the United States.

"XLsoft prides itself on being a brand name in the international software industry, and we have earned that reputation in part by continually partnering with companies like TotalView Technologies," said Mitsutoshi Watanabe, CEO of XLsoft. "Our customers depend on us to provide them with the very best software development tools available, and the TotalView and MemoryScape debuggers have proven to be essential for developers working in multi-core environments."

TotalView is a comprehensive source code and optional memory debugging solution that dramatically enhances developer productivity by simplifying the process of debugging parallel, data-intensive, multi-process, multi-threaded or network-distributed applications. Built to handle the complexities of the world's most demanding applications, TotalView supports hybrid applications that utilize OpenMP and MPI to make efficient use of multi-core clusters. TotalView debugs applications built from components that may have been written in different languages (FORTRAN 90 and C++, for example) and then compiled with different compilers (Intel and GCC, for example) -- but run together as a single executable. TotalView is also robust and easy to use, with an intuitive GUI that helps users quickly isolate and identify the root cause of problems.

MemoryScape is an easy-to-use, graphical, interactive memory debugger that helps developers, build engineers, and QA testers identify, inspect and resolve difficult memory problems in C, C++ and FORTRAN, including complex multi-process and multi-threaded programs. Designed to be an integrated part of the software development process, MemoryScape allows development teams to watch for memory leaks and monitor memory usage while an application is running. It enables developers to monitor heap memory, view memory usage, locate memory leaks, track memory events and show corrupted memory. Developers can also save and compare memory states and compile sophisticated memory reports. MemoryScape is non-intrusive, so developers can find memory problems without recompiling, and without waiting all day for even the smallest test to run.

"XLsoft is known for introducing groundbreaking software development products to the Japanese market, and we are confident that both TotalView and MemoryScape will meet or exceed their customers' high expectations," said Jim Chafel, vice president of business development at TotalView Technologies. "It is exciting for us to work with them to reach programmers in the Japanese market who are challenged by application development in multi-core computing environments."
