Why do state and local government offices choose Charon® for legacy server virtualization?

As the underlying hardware ages, the mission-critical applications that support the work of public servants are put at risk. Hardware breakdown and failure can impact your ability to serve constituents.

It’s also costly: Gartner estimates that the average large corporation experiences 87 hours of downtime per year, and any downtime for state and local government employees can result in major headaches when they can’t access mission-critical resources.

Swapping Out Legacy Hardware for Modern Applications

For twenty years, we’ve been helping government offices 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 state and local government

Charon legacy hardware emulation solutions provide a way for government offices to prevent unplanned downtime due to hardware failure. With implementation typically completed in five business days or less—and cutover scheduled outside of business hours—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 government offices around the world that have emulated their hardware: mitigate risk, lower costs, improve performance, and preserve your applications with Charon.
