Why do energy businesses choose Charon® for legacy server virtualization?

The mission-critical applications that support energy businesses are often running at aging hardware, putting the applications at risk. Hardware breakdown and failure can impact your business’s reputation, and it’s 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 of lost production be for your energy business?

Helping Companies Emulate Legacy Hardware

For twenty years, Stromasys has been helping energy companies emulate legacy hardware on 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.
