Legacy Hardware Virtualization Comparison

If your business relies on aging legacy systems, the clock is ticking. High maintenance costs, old hardware, and high electricity bills make doing nothing untenable. But starting from scratch isn’t much more attractive, what with the associated costs of programming, hardware, and retraining and re-certifying users.

There’s a third way. Discover how Stromasys Charon® lift-and-shift migration checks all the boxes as the most cost-effective way to end the risk of legacy hardware while extending the life and improving the performance of legacy software.
