Stromasys Hardware Virtualization : CHARON and VMware deliver Maximum Reliability for Legacy Systems

VMware confirms: Stromasys virtual servers are "VMware READY". IT administrators are now able to enjoy maximum reliability for legacy DEC systems.

Today, Stromasys S.A. is pleased to announce that its CHARON line of cross platform virtualisation products has received the VMware Ready logo. The software virtualises Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) PDP-11, VAX systems, and AlphaServers. VMware has now confirmed that Charon virtual servers are supported on virtual machines in the VMware ESXi environment. This "double virtualisation" offers IT administrators almost complete failure protection for their legacy systems. "With this announcement and future enhancement planned for CHARON on VMware, customers can now have a unified and standard data center infrastructure for both their main stream applications and legacy systems, a unique value proposition brought together by Stromasys and VMware", said Robert Boers, Chairman and CEO of Stromasys.?

Once the IT administrator has installed CHARON on a virtual Windows or Linux system in VMware, the virtual system can be managed with vSphere like any other virtual machine. Should there be hardware problems, even an active application together with its virtual server system can be moved to a backup VMware server using vMotion. "By using virtual servers on VMware we were able to almost completely eliminate the risk of an outage, while our application continue to run on VMS", explains Janos Kreis, System Manager at Kraus & Naimer. Kraus & Naimer has been using CHARON for various VAX server models in conjunction with VMware for several months.

For some time now, many IT administrators have been waiting for CHARON to receive the VMware Ready logo, because large companies and government organisations are still working with OpenVMS on DEC VAX and AlphaServer systems, which were built in the 1980s and 1990s. The operating system still has the reputation to be the safest and most stable of its kind, but frequently hardware threatens to fail after more than 20 years of productive use. Together, CHARON and VMware will ensure that operating system and applications can continue to be used without any interruption.
