Stromasys announced updates to its emulation solution, Charon-SSP 4.2, which now allows organizations to implement secure licensing in all major cloud provider environments. IT professionals using aging SPARC hardware to run essential legacy applications can migrate them to the cloud or a modern on-prem platform. They can continue using the apps without the fear of unplanned downtime and enjoy lower operational costs.
Companies can use the new Virtual Environment (VE) licensing model, designed and implemented by Stromasys, for flexible individual cloud installations or with preconfigured images offered on selected marketplaces.
“IT Managers have struggled to find solutions to quickly lift and shift mission-critical applications off end-of-life hardware as they modernize their infrastructure,” stated CEO John Prot. “The ongoing pandemic has further highlighted the urgency to take steps towards a cloud strategy. Charon 4.2 enables IT departments to accomplish this effort for legacy workloads.”
Charon-SSP 4.2 has additional key features, including a new appliance-type package for easy on-prem installation and management as well as support for Red Hat/CentOS 8.
