About Transitive Corporation

Transitive is the leader in providing solutions that allow the transportability of software applications across multiple hardware platforms. The company's QuickTransit hardware virtualization solution allows software applications that have been compiled for one processor/operating system to run on a system with a different processor/operating system, without any source code or binary changes and at speeds comparable to native ports. QuickTransit allows data center managers to transport legacy enterprise applications quickly and easily from outdated, proprietary hardware to modern, standardized platforms without incurring the costs and delays of porting projects, and with no disruption to end users. QuickTransit also facilitates computer companies' migration to new hardware platforms; dramatically reduces software developers' cost, risk, and time-to-market in supporting multiple hardware platforms; and makes significantly more software available for more hardware platforms.

QuickTransit technology provides the engine for Apple's Rosetta translation software and is currently shipping on all of Apple's Intel-based computers. QuickTransit also provides the engine for IBM System p AVE, which will be included with all IBM System p enterprise servers later in 2007.

Transitive Corporation is located in Los Gatos, California with a research and development team in Manchester, UK. For more information, please visit Transitive's Web site at www.transitive.com.
