Charon-PAR - Emulation Solution for PA-RISC Hardware

Talk to an Expert

Charon-PAR is a hardware emulation layer running under Linux on industry-standard servers. It emulates a range of historic PA-RISC hardware systems with HP UX operating system and allows existing users of such systems to move to modern Intel-based server hardware.

With the Charon-PAR solution, you can securely transfer your PA-RISC systems to a state-of-the-art environment. Stromasys’ solution enables third-party applications and user-developed software to run without modification.

HP recognizes Charon-PAR software as a valid platform to run MPE and HP UX, and Charon-PAR passes the original MPE hardware qualification tests.

Modernizing your PA-RISC Hardware with different Charon-PAR Configurations

The Charon-PAR product family is a range of fully compatible virtualized PA-RISC systems running on industry-standard Intel x64 (Core i7 and Xeon) servers. Virtualization technology takes advantage of technological advantages since PA-RISC systems were built, translating PA-RISC instructions on-the-fly into optimized sequences of Intel CPU instructions. Charon-PAR servers run 100% unmodified copies of MPE/iX 7.5 and allow you to restore your applications and third-party software onto modern, reliable, high-performance hardware, providing a “best of both worlds” solution.

Charon-PAR Compatibility

Charon-PAR provides several virtual hardware families of the PA-RISC that support the following guest operating systems:

  • Charon-PAR/PA3: Supports the following guest operating system: MPE/iX 7.5.
  • Charon-PAR/PA9-64 and Charon-PAR/PA9-32: PA9-64 emulates 64-bit models, PA9-32 emulates 32-bit models.

License Transfer Options

Keep your MPE/iX operating system legal with a transfer license from HP. This license allows the transfer of the MPE/iX operating system license to servers running the CHARON- PAR environment.
