Transitive® Expands Reseller Network With Appointment of Three New Partners

Distribution Channel Extended to Meet Growing Enterprise Customer Demand for Transitive's Hardware Virtualization Solutions That Eliminate Hardware/Software Dependencies

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - In response to exploding demand for its hardware virtualization solutions, Transitive® Corporation, the leading provider of software that enables transportability of applications across multiple processor and operating system pairs, today announced the expansion of its global reseller network with the addition of three new partners that will now offer its award-winning QuickTransit® software.

Net Direct Systems, STA and TotalTec Systems fill out Transitive's channel network in the Americas with best-of-breed technology, marketing, and distribution skills. These partners employ accredited professionals who ensure that customers enjoy the best deployment and technical support experience. As a result, Transitive's customers now have access to a broader choice of resellers that can meet their specific hardware and professional services needs. Each of the new resellers has experience in large-scale datacenter consolidation and IT infrastructure upgrade projects, and QuickTransit helps them by providing a fast, easy and cost-effective solution to legacy application migration.

"The trend toward hardware virtualization, coupled with the business need to preserve legacy applications, is fueling demand for QuickTransit's migration solution," said Steven Mih, vice president of worldwide sales at Transitive Corporation. "Transitive's current market momentum is directly tied to the quality of its channel partners, and we have carefully developed our reseller programs to ensure our partners are successful and our customers can rapidly enjoy the business benefits of their QuickTransit deployments."
