Accelerate Cloud Enablement, Modernization, and Virtualization of Legacy Mission Critical Applications

Stromasys develops the Charon family of software emulators which virtualize and enable DEC Alpha, DEC VAX, DEC PDP, PA-RISC systems, and Sun SPARC systems onto x86 platforms or Azure, AWS, Google or Oracle clouds.

Stromasys technology provides a precise and exact duplicate of the original hardware systems (to the BIOS level) which ensure that applications remain untouched and enabled to migrate without disruption or modification

Complexity Management for Obsolescence Management

Complexity management is not a do-it-yourself prospect. Agencies and integrators need to find quality partners of reliable hardware, software, service and support and use these vendors as trusted allies.

Stromasys is such a vendor. We provide our customers with the design, architecting, and engineering expertise of a business partner and the economics of an outside vendor.  With our solution, customers have the ability to modernize their environment in order to run their applications at needed performance levels, with maximum efficiency and reliability.

The accelerating gap

There is a substantial obsolescence “gap” beginning to accelerate in the government. The processor-based server, device, console and appliance markets continue to evolve at quantum-pace. Software applications, utilities and games continue to grow to keep pace with processor-based hardware.  Stromasys has compelling technical reach and lab capabilities to ensure end-users are no-longer held hostage to revenue-driven hardware and software companies controlling end-user technical-refresh cycles, weapon system sustainment cycles and mission critical application life cycles.

Twenty-three years ago, we saw the opportunity to “lift and shift” obsolete hardware and the value of customers in replicating their operating environments. The result was our customers embracing our value proposition: Why invest in newer hardware when you have “cloned” the success of a mission-critical application? These applications are self-reinforced with trained and certified end-users and completed compliance testing. 

We’ve renewed our strategic focus with regard to the continued emergence of cloud computing and the IoT. Emulation and Digital Twin solutions are needed to address the interconnectivity of today’s architectures. Peripheral devices require their own emulators and enterprises need an emulation platform which can be customized to their business, incorporating the connectivity and proprietary technologies which make allow them to dominate their missions and domains, i.e., governance, security, weapons, sensors, maintenance, logistics, admin, etc.,
