CHARON-AXP Virtualization
The Answer to Your Alpha Hardware Problems!

Software Concepts International (SCI) has partnered with Stromasys to provide an Alpha virtualization products, CHARON-AXP, that allows you to run your Alpha applications unchanged on modern, high-performance, industry-standard (X86) hardware. Stromasys is the original and leading provider of enterprise-class cross-platform virtualization solutions, including PDP-11, Digital VAX and Alpha, HP 3000, and SPARC servers. By partnering with Stromasys, we are able to extend the life cycle of business and mission-critical systems through virtualization, modernization, and system enhancement.

The CHARON-AXP family of products are Alpha replacement systems, running as a software application on industry standard systems, such as an HP ProLiant server. They present to the Alpha operating system the exact copy of a Alpha system, and will run unmodified Alpha operating systems, layered software and applications. This makes conversion seamless and eliminates the need to implement new applications or re-educate employees. In fact, end users are unaware of the transition to the emulator except that their applications will run considerably faster!


SCI can install your Alpha OpenVMS operating system, on the virtual Alpha created by CHARON-AXP, directly from a system disk image from the original Alpha or from the original distribution kit. The applications and LMF license keys can be copied in binary format via the network, tape, floppy disk or CD. Due to the fact that the Alpha hardware is replaced and not the Alpha operating system, all original software functionality is maintained.
