PR9.NET April 08, 2006 - Redmond, WA,- S7 Software Solutions today announced the launch of their new porting and migration tool 'Linux-it'. Based on a deterministic approach,Linux-it is a suite of tools to port applications to Linux [Redhat, SuSE etc] from Sun Solaris, HP, SGI, SCO, and AIX. It comprises of Parser, Wrapper and Converter programs and provides a better porting decision by estimating the porting and cost complexity even before the porting process begins.
It also automates the possible porting tasks and reduces time and development effort. With Linux-it, clients get both tools and a methodology to move to the Linux environment. It relies upon a set of scripts and tools to achieve efficiency and productivity improvements in the process of migration. While the scripts identify the possible porting issues, the tools actually generate part of the migration code.
"Linux-it helps in giving a "deterministic" and "tool-based approach" for the porting and migration process. It lets one know in advance whether porting is possible or not by modules thereby, providing a roadmap and estimation to customers regarding the Linux migration. This consequently reduces the time, development effort to as much as 30-40% as the migration is done by the tool itself and removes the probability factor and gives the break-up of the porting efforts. This tool reduce costs and time to market and gives the customer a significantly higher Return On Investment (ROI)," said Mr. Manjunath M Gowda, CEO, S7 Software Solutions
Linux-it can effortlessly perform the following porting and migration tasks-
· Less critical server migration (like file servers, print servers, mail servers, intranet web servers, firewalls servers, DNS servers etc)
· Application server platform and application migration of non-critical applications
· Application server platform and application migration of critical business applications
· Database server migration to Linux OS - keeping the database same
· Database server migration to Linux OS, along with migration of database to an open source db like MySQL
The tool provides an integrated end-to-end solution that covers aspects like porting analysis, effort estimation and actual migration to the target Linux environment where any professional team can ensure that the system testing with the new environment is completed and successfully deployed.
