RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Stromasys, Inc., a leader in cross-platform virtualization software, announced that CHARON virtualization products will be delivered directly to HP customers who are looking to modernize legacy VAX and Alpha systems. Customers in the United States and Canada will be able to take advantage of price and performance enhancements available through HP Integrity and ProLiant servers.

Stromasys' CHARON virtualization products for VAX and Alpha provide an ideal solution for owners of VAX and Alpha systems, allowing them to take advantage of performance and total cost of ownership gains associated with HP Integrity and ProLiant servers, without exposing them to the risk of changing or losing their legacy VAX and Alpha applications. Stromasys' unique virtualization approach is superior to standard emulation because CHARON products operate seamlessly in a standard Windows or Integrity environment running on modern, high-performance HP servers, without modifying or recompiling the original software or applications.

Encouraged by the overwhelming customer response in Canada, where this relationship was launched earlier this year, Stromasys expects the expansion of the collaboration into the United States to become a rapid success. According to Zul Abbany, President of Stromasys' North and South American operations, "This agreement further validates Stromasys' achievements in the field of cross-platform virtualization; we look forward to providing HP customers with reliable, innovative virtualization solutions."

Dr. Robert Boers, Stromasys founder and CEO, said, "This milestone demonstrates the strategic nature of our collaboration with HP, and our entire team - from sales to development - is excited about the opportunity to deliver the outstanding value of virtualization to HP customers."

"Customers want to preserve and extend the life of their existing VAX and Alpha applications while improving performance, managing risk and lowering costs," said Ling Chang, technical and data center services manager, Technology Services - Americas, HP. "Through our relationship with Stromasys, our VAX and Alpha customers are now able to successfully move their existing applications to the HP's latest server technologies."
