MigraTEC™ Launches 64Express For The Upcoming Eighth-Generation AMD Opteron™ and AMD Athlon™ Processors

64Express Dramatically Reduces the Risk, Time and Cost of 32-bit to 64-bit Migration Projects

DALLAS -- July 16, 2002 -- MigraTEC (OTCBB: MIGR) has launched 64Express™ for the upcoming eighth-generation AMD Opteron™ and AMD Athlon™ processors. MigraTEC’s automated migration solution helps customers move their enterprise applications to platforms based on AMD’s x86-64 architecture.


Based on patented core technologies, 64Express automates the migration of C and C++-based Linux® 32-bit applications to the upcoming eighth-generation AMD Opteron and AMD Athlon processor-based platforms, allowing developers to focus on more value-added activities, such as re-architecting, tuning and optimization, rather than on the repetitive, manual effort of porting code from 32-bit to 64-bit.


MigraTEC also plans to support migrations of Windows® 32-bit applications to 64-bit on the x86-64 architecture-based platforms upon release of the 64-bit editions of Windows.


“The upcoming eighth-generation AMD processor technology will help jumpstart the shift to standards-based 64-bit technologies in the enterprise,” said Wes Blair, vice president of sales and marketing, MigraTEC. "64Express is the only automated migration solution currently available for ISVs and enterprises preparing to migrate their 32-bit applications to support the upcoming AMD Opteron processor’s 64-bit capabilities.”


AMD's forthcoming AMD Opteron processor is based on the company's eighth generation processor core, which includes the x86-64 technology. This technology provides native support for today’s 32-bit software as well as support for 64-bit architecture that provides the flexibility, scalability and performance many enterprise applications require.


“AMD and MigraTEC have a shared goal of helping enterprises preserve their investments in 32-bit applications while providing a seamless migration path 64-bit computing,” said Rich Heye, vice president platform engineering and infrastructure, Computation Products Group, AMD. “MigraTEC’s 64Express will help customers adopt 64-bit AMD processor-based platforms by providing an efficient and reliable migration path.”
