RALEIGH, NC — April 3, 2018 – Stromasys, Inc., the global leader in legacy server virtualization solutions,

Sue will enhance our growing team, which is focused on reaching even more companies and organizations, through new channels.”

Sue Skonetski added, “Through my experience, I’ve seen up close the critical role that these legacy systems play in daily business cycles. Helping to ensure the availability of these applications is imperative with decreasing service and support options for SPARC, Alpha, VAX, and HP 3000. Stromasys’s innovations—along with their strong team of software designers, solution’s executives, and account management professionals—made joining the organization a natural fit.
