14 November, 2014 – For over 15 years, our Charon product family has enabled users to migrate their mission-critical systems and applications to the latest generation of hardware in a secure, quick, and cost-effective way. Now, we are offering a solution to migrate those same VAX, Alpha, HP 3000, PDP-11, and SPARC critical applications to the cloud.
“We are proud to be the first company to give customers complete flexibility and choice in migrating their classic systems, either to the cloud or to the latest generation of on-premise servers,” John Prot, CEO of Stromasys.
Stromasys is pleased to announce a major addition to its CHARON-VAX family: a CHARON-VAX for Linux line of products. CHARON-VAX for Linux is designed to run on Linux Red Hat Enterprise 6.x and Fedora distributions, offering a functionality and performance level similar to the CHARON-VAX for Windows line of products. With the release of CHARON-VAX on Linux, Stromasys is offering full Linux support for the entire line of products.
CHARON-VAX for Windows has also been significantly updated, now including additional VAX emulated models (VAX 4700, 4705, 6640, and 6650), adding the latest Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and VMware ESXi 5.5 support, extending protection options with network and software licensing, providing additional emulated VAX hardware (DRV11-WA), and including various improvements to networking, storage, and monitoring capabilities.
CHARON-VAX for Linux is available as of November 1st.
In addition, HP and Stromasys are pleased to announce the release of version 7.8 of Cockpit Manager for OpenVMS, a powerful monitoring system for OpenVMS environment. This is also available as of November 1st.
At Stromasys, meeting the needs of our customers is our first priority. As new situations arise pertaining to the stability and security of your IT infrastructure, we are here to support you and ensure the continued performance of your applications.Beginning July 14, 2015, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows Server 2003. Updates and patches to address new security vulnerabilities will no longer be readily available for servers running Windows Server 2003. We understand the importance of maintaining a secure IT infrastructure, and in the wake of this news we are available to assist you in protecting your applications and business. Stromasys is now offering services to assist our customers in upgrading to a supported version of Windows–and, at the same time, to a newer and higher-functioning version of Charon!
