Save Money With Lift-and-Shift Migration

Using Stromasys emulation software:

  • Extends the lifecycle of mission-critical legacy systems.
  • Costs less than one year of legacy hardware support and 90% less than rewriting applications.
  • Eliminates the expense of maintaining and repairing legacy hardware.
  • Avoids the costs and complexity of rewriting, retesting, recertifying, and migrating your systems to new software every few years.
  • Lets you pay only for the cloud computing cycles you need.
  • Reduces energy costs and helps achieve sustainability goals.

Avoid Implementation Stress

Quickly rehosting to the modern hardware without making changes to your application:

  • Creates a transition so seamless that your end users won’t notice the change.
  • Leaves legacy systems unchanged, so there’s no need for end-user retraining.

Reduce Reliability Concerns

Lift-and-shift migration:

  • Dramatically reduces risk of server failure.
  • Taps into leading-edge cloud architecture to ensure high availability and access to the latest security tools.
  • Accesses multiple fail-safes to enhance disaster recovery.
  • Ensures performance with available 24/7 global support.

Boost Productivity by Migrating to Modern Servers

Stromasys experts significantly improve legacy systems performance through:

  • Deep knowledge of both legacy hardware and modern cloud-based systems.
  • Experience gained from more than 7,000 installations across 70 countries.
  • Connections to ultra-fast backups, data resiliency, and increased storage and memory capabilities through modern on-premises servers or the cloud.
