Charon-SSP emulates classic SPARC V8/V9 hardware
Charon-SSP recreates the SPARC virtual hardware layer on industry standard x86 infrastructure. The virtual layer acts as SPARC hardware and is compatible with any Sun/Solaris software running on it, so there is no need for code conversion or source code.
Charon-SSP is fully binary compatible with SPARC hardware, including storage, Ethernet, and serial line I/O. No risky migration projects are required, nor changes to the original software (operating system, layered products, or applications), its procedures, or handling. Your end users would not even notice that the hardware platform had been replaced! Charon-SSP can replace SPARC systems from the Sun4C, Sun4M, Sun4U, and Sun4V families.
Charon-SSP allows all applications on legacy Sun SPARC systems to continue running without modification. As a member of the Azure Partner Network, Stromasys makes it easier for customers to move to legacy Solaris workloads to Azure by virtualizing SPARC systems on Intel x86 servers in the cloud.
