This invaluable book provides insight into architecture migration discussing real world software migration issues and highlighting them with case studies. The book covers pertinent topics that are at the heart of the software migration, such as techniques to port code originally written for other processor architectures, as well as capturing the benefits of Intel® Atom™ platform technologies. The reality is that architecture migration is not a one-size-fits-all activity and developers must understand all of the decisions that comprise a successful migration. The authors deliver this information as a handbook to your software migration plan and project activities.
