Unisys Delivers Breakthrough in Transition
Unisys Delivers Breakthrough in Transition of Secure Unisys ClearPath Architecture to Intel® Xeon® Processor Family
With ClearPath server architecture, Unisys provides industry-leading platform for secure, mission-critical computing based on Intel Xeon processors
WELLINGTON – 21 March 2013 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that its secure ClearPath server architecture is gaining recognition for its breakthrough implementation of mission-critical computing on the Intel® Xeon® Processor family.
Over the past two years Unisys has been transitioning its ClearPath architecture from proprietary processors to the Intel Xeon family, and during the transition the ClearPath architecture has retained its competitive advantage in unmatched security for mission-critical computing.1
“Unisys has made a significant breakthrough with its advanced ClearPath architecture, achieving one of the highest levels of security that any systems provider has delivered on the Intel Xeon Processor platform,” said Lisa Graff, Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Enterprise Segment Group. “Intel congratulates Unisys on a major step in adding value to our flagship processor technology and expanding the benefits it can bring to secure enterprise computing.”
“We believe that the combination of Unisys’ advanced ClearPath architecture and Intel’s powerful Xeon processor technology offers clients the most secure platform for their transaction-intensive enterprise computing requirements in the market today,” said Ed Coleman, Unisys Chairman and CEO. “We appreciate Intel’s recognition of Unisys’ achievement, and look forward to continuing to work together to meet clients’ mission-critical computing requirements.”
The Unisys ClearPath architecture enables multiple secure, virtualised partitions in a system based on Intel Xeon processors to execute multiple workloads simultaneously. Unisys-developed hypervisor software provides uniform management of the virtualised environment. Each secure partition functions as an independent server, increasing system reliability because a fault in one partition does not affect others. Communications among the partitions occur at memory speed, faster than they would over conventional network connections.
