With Charon-AXP, Thuraya tackles its failing hardware and preserves its mission critical applications
Thuraya had been running mission-critical applications on Compaq DS20 Alpha servers and XP1000 workstations hosting the legacy operating system Tru64. The hardware was becoming obsolete and the need for a solution was critical: these aging systems were causing outages and disturbances to the business’s daily operations. Since the expense of a system upgrade would have cost millions of dollars and lacked vendor support, Thuraya was considering alternatives.
With Charon-AXP, Thuraya found a high quality and cost-effective solution that would enable them to continue their day-to-day operations, unimpeded by aging hardware.
