Why do hospitals and health care providers choose Charon® for legacy system virtualization?

As the underlying hardware ages, the mission-critical applications that manage patient records, employee payroll, and other essential data and processes are put at risk. Hardware breakdown and failure can impact a health care organization’s ability to serve patients—as well as its reputation.

Hardware Breakdown = Expensive

Aging hardware can also be costly: Gartner estimates that the average large corporation experiences 87 hours of downtime per year and loses $42,000 for each of those hours. What would the costs be for your hospital or healthcare organization?

For twenty years, we’ve been helping hospitals and healthcare providers swap out legacy hardware for modern x86 or cloud platforms. They continue to run their trusted applications without modification, recertification, or employee retraining—and typically at a fraction of the cost of a full migration project or annual maintenance of the original hardware.

Implementing Charon® legacy server emulation solutions in your healthcare system.

Charon legacy hardware emulation solutions enable hospitals and health care providers to prevent unplanned downtime due to hardware failure. With implementation typically completed in five business days or less—and the cutover occurring at a time most convenient for your organization—interruption to employees and business operations is minimal.

If you’re running applications on legacy PDP-11, VAX, Alpha, HP 3000, or Sun SPARC systems, let us help you emulate the hardware. Join the ranks of hospitals and healthcare providers around the world that have experienced the benefits of hardware emulation: mitigate risk, lower costs, improve performance, and preserve your applications with Charon from Stromasys.
