AdaCore Implements Ada on Intel Itanium 2-based HP Integrity Servers

NEW YORK, NY, USA - AdaCore announced today the availability of its GNAT Pro Ada development environment on Intel® Itanium® 2-based HP Integrity servers running either the HP-UX or Linux operating systems. With GNAT Pro, Ada users can take full advantage of the performance, security, and flexibility offered by the HP servers. And Ada users with applications running on the AlphaServer and PA-RISC platforms can look forward to a smooth transition to HP-UX 11i and Linux on HP's Integrity servers.

GNAT Pro is the first Ada development environment available on the Itanium 2 architecture. Its implementation on HP-UX 11i and Linux for HP Integrity servers was conducted by AdaCore under a contract from HP.

"AdaCore’s implementation of GNAT Pro on Itanium-based platforms sends an important message to the Ada market," said Robert Dewar, president of AdaCore. "First, Ada is clearly a significant language for major computer makers, and second, AdaCore’s commercial open source software approach makes the most sense for supporting Ada users."

"HP Integrity servers provide an agile, standards-based platform for HP-UX and Linux, as evidenced by the more than 5,000 applications now available on these systems," said Don Jenkins, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Servers, HP. "AdaCore's port of their GNAT Pro Ada development environment to HP Integrity servers provides customers even more choices in enterprise solutions, and accelerates their journey toward becoming an Adaptive Enterprise."

AdaCore’s GNAT Pro for HP-UX 11i v2 and Linux (Red Hat® and SUSE®) is immediately available from AdaCore on HP’s Integrity servers.
