Stromasys announces a new product version, Charon-SSP 4.0, to include emulation of the hardware SPARC-V9 64-bit processor

Stromasys announced today its release of Charon-SSP version 4.0 (SSP 4.0), which extends the number of processors the Charon software can emulate to a modern platform or the cloud, as well as offering more memory and increased performance. IT professionals with end-of-life SPARC servers can use the Charon-SSP emulation software in order to continue using mission-critical applications, while also lowering operational costs and energy consumption.

With SSP 4.0, Stromasys enhanced its cross-platform hardware virtualization product to include a virtual replica of sun4m, sun4u, and sun4v SPARC systems on standard x86-64 computer systems. These systems are running Linux on top of physical hardware, or a hypervisor, and can be emulated on a cloud through a cloud-specific product variant.

“The SPARC-V9 64-bit processer is more widely used than other SPARC systems.  Thanks to this addition to our product line, more companies can now fully modernize their IT departments, use new technologies, have IT agility and take part in cloud migration,” stated John Prot, CEO of Stromasys. “They will not be held back by aging technology.”

Key features of SSP 4.0 include an integrated SSH tunnel in Charon manager, an automatic initial password change, emulator suspend and resume, USB removable device support, and various bug fixes and improvements.
