Telecom and Data Center Application Migration Sun Solaris Operating Systems Intel Multi-Core Processors
This migration guide discusses the process for porting C/C++ applications running on the Sun Solaris operating system (OS) from SPARC platforms to Intel architecture platforms. It outlines a number of possible software portation issues; however, a typical migration effort is unlikely to encounter all of them. Although this guide is directed towards software portation, some of the issues presented in this white paper are also relevant to other aspects of SPARC to Intel architecture platform migration. Many equipment manufacturers are porting their telecom and data center applications running on Solaris to Intel multi-core processor-based platforms to benefit from industry leading performance and greater performance per watt.
