A number of major companies have formed a partnership to speed up the development of software for servers equipped...

with Intel Itanium processors.

The Itanium Solutions Alliance includes server makers HP, Fujitsu, Hitachi, NEC, Unisys, Bull and Silicon Graphics. Among the absentees are IBM, Dell and Sun Microsystems, which have all withdrawn Itanium support in their servers.

Software companies that back the initiative include Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, Red Hat, Novell and BEA Systems. Intel, of course, is also a member.

The main aim of the group is to encourage programmers to write code optimised for Itanium’s processing power, which is aimed at higher-end server solutions.

Developer days are planned by the alliance, and the existing 19-site Itanium Solutions Centre Network will be more heavily used as part of the initiative’s development work.
