Businesses are managing more data and IT systems today than ever before. So, it’s no surprise that during mergers and acquisitions, getting the technology integration right can be an issue.

A Stromasys customer that produces over 60,000 products used in homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, and other industries had been successfully running Charon-AXP to run their manufacturing applications for years. Aging x86 hardware and a desire to close legacy data centers put those mission-critical systems at risk.

To upgrade outdated hardware and replace its old, costly data centers, the customer looked to re-host their on-premises Charon-AXP (Tru64 Unix) workloads to AWS using application migration service, or MGN. The customer partnered with Stromasys and its partner, LCI, to provide hands-on assistance for the re-hosting using CloudEndure.

With a highly complex, multi-national company with manufacturing sites all over the United States, many of the customer’s systems and data centers were not only costing them precious time with integrations but also costing them significantly each year to maintain. In today’s world of instantaneous information, they needed a solution that allowed them to integrate more quickly and be more efficient and responsive in business operations.
