Latest release demonstrates ongoing commitment to IMPART customers and product range.

Crewe, November 14th, 2012 – In response to customer demand, Boldon James today released a new version of their IMPART product range for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6, the first release of the IMPART applications on this 64-bit platform. The current 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server is now available as a platform for the VME connectivity IMPART applications such as the Distributed Application Facility (for transaction processing), Direct Print and File Transfer.

IMPART for Linux now offers the equivalent level of functionality on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform as is available today with the Boldon James IMPART product sets that support the Solaris, HP-UX and AIX platforms. Linux RH6 now presents a viable alternative for customers who may be considering re-platforming their VME connectivity applications sets.

IMPART OSI Transport is one of only a small number of commercial product ISO 8073/8473 Transport implementations for the Red Hat Linux platform available on the market today.

“This release demonstrates Boldon James’ long-term commitment to and support of the VME Mainframe connectivity and ISO Transport products for the legacy VME applications within UK central Government, as well as the specialist use of ISO Transport protocols in a variety of other market sectors including Manufacturing and Telecommunications” said Richard Bailey, CTO of Boldon James.

Boldon James have been supplying mainframe connectivity products to enable users to connect to legacy applications on Fujitsu-ICL mainframes for over 25 years and IMPART users can be found in many industrial sectors including ICL VME environments, telecommunication products, manufacturing and material handling systems.
