IBM buy targets server consolidation

IBM plans to acquire virtualization vendor Transitive Corporation, whose software lets applications run on multiple platforms even if they were designed for a single type of microprocessor and operating system.

Transitive's technology is already included in IBM's PowerVMTM software, which lets customers consolidate x86 Linux workloads onto IBM servers. (Compare server products.) IBM is targeting customers who could benefit by moving from under-utilized servers to mainframe and Power systems.

Transitive has 48 patents related to its cross-platform virtualization technology. The company develops “technologies that allow applications written for one type of microprocessor and operating system to run on multiple platforms — with little or no modification,” IBM says. Financial terms of the planned acquisition were not disclosed. The deal was announced Tuesday.

With Transitive in tow, IBM says it plans to build additional products to make server migrations and consolidations easier to complete.
