Virtual PA-RISC with VE licensing

Virtual PA-RISC with VE licensing

By: Stromasys Latest Version: 3.07

Product Overview

Charon-PAR® belongs to the Charon Solutions family of emulators from Stromasys, which extend the lives of mission-critical legacy applications by unfettering them from the underlying, past-end-of-life servers, such as Sun SPARC, VAX, Alpha, PDP-11, and HP/PA-RISC servers. Charon-PAR emulates a range of historic PA-RISC hardware systems and allows existing users of such systems to move to modern Intel-based server hardware. The Charon-PAR emulate the complete legacy hardware, including their PCI-based I/O devices. They are precise models of the legacy hardware and contain modules that emulate the legacy hardware CPUs, console subsystem, buses and I/O adapters, disks, and tapes. This compatibility allows applications to be quickly re-hosted in the Charon-PAR virtualized environment, bypassing software code conversion, changes, or replacement. Charon-PAR replaces PA-RISC systems such as the HP-3000 series and HP-9000 series servers from Hewlett Packard.
