WIN4LIN ANNOUNCES PRODUCT SUPPORT FOR AMD AND INTEL 64-BIT PROCESSORS
Company's Win4Lin Products run Windows 2000/XP Desktop and Applications on
Linux at Near-Native Speed
BOSTON, MA LinuxWorld Expo -- Win4Lin, the leading purveyor of
integrated Windows-on-Linux solutions announced today full support for
64-bit host processors for their Win4Lin Pro products.
Windows-on-Linux solutions are gaining interest as more organizations seek
to balance their desktop portfolios to include more Linux-hosted
desktops. These desktops suffer from application availability and
compatibility without the Windows-on-Linux capability offered by the
award-winning Win4Lin Pro.64-bit system support is essential for
Windows-on-Linux business solutions as 64-bit machines are gaining
increasingly market share.
"IT decision-makers are increasingly turning to 64-bit platforms from AMD
and Intel as default choices to build their next-generation computing
infrastructure on. Today's announcement positions Win4Lin as the leader in
providing virtual Windows sessions on 64-bit Linux-based hosts", said Jim
Curtin, president and CEO of Win4Lin. Increasingly virtualization is being
used not only as a consolidating technology, whether desktops or servers,
but also as a deployment agent. As organizations begin to position
themselves on either side of the Vista upgrade decision, virtualization is
emerging as a strategic way to balance the risks of either new systems
roll-outs or moving to a more diversified portfolio of desktop environments
involving some credible level of Linux desktops.
"The 64-bit x86 processors from AMD and Intel provide the highest, most
cost-effective CPU performance and capacity available," said Leo Reiter,
CTO of Win4Lin. "We are pleased to say that Win4Lin Pro is now the best
way to run Windows 2000 and XP on these popular platforms."
Win4Lin products are aimed at enabling users to more easily embrace the
cost, reliability and security advantages of an end-to-end Linux
infrastructure, without having to give up, port or re-write viable Windows
applications. Win4Lin products run Windows applications with no need to
modify the application or the application environment.
Win4Lin business-oriented virtualization solutions allow organizations and
individuals to migrate from Windows, or co-exist with Linux by preserving
their investment in critical Windows applications. With Win4Lin products,
organizations can cost-effectively get ahead of the technology curve by
deploying Windows applications in a heterogeneous desktop environment.
