Legacy System Emulation
We keep your mission critical legacy applications alive
We have the National Digital Competence Center specializing in migration issues
The Stromasys Solve.it Partnership
Solve.it has incorporated national Digital competence center specializing in migration issues.
The corresponding European center of competence in Geneva became an independent company (SRI) in 1988, following the acquisition of Digital by Compaq.
In 2008, SRI changed its name to Stromasys.
Solve.it has been a Premier partner of Stromasys since October 2003
THE VIRTUALIZATION OF LEGACY SYSTEMS
Why are these systems, which have been discontinued for years, still in use?
The First CustomerOur first customer in Italy was a manufacturing industry that had recently acquired a new brand and, therefore, needed to double production at the machining centers managed by minicomputers that were out-of-production and for which support was no longer available. Stopping operations to replace the minicomputers and their related applications was unthinkable. The virtualization of legacy systems was the successful solution.
Subsequent CustomersOther customers, typically in the defense industry, use legacy systems as development systems for MIL-standard devices. These systems are subject to rigorous certification standards and are, in effect, non-modifiable, at least for the lifespan of the final product, which can even stretch to several decades, such as for aircraft avionics components or the control systems of a ship. Legacy systems are often part of plant control systems and are not replaceable without replacing the entire installation.
Our solution allows the replacement of legacy systems with industry standard systems without the need to intervene on operating systems and applications, in a very short time and at low costs.
We can replace the legacy systems of five distinct families. Below are the five families of systems we are able to manage. Products are always released after the end of support date announced by the manufacturer.
Digital Systems Family (Pdp, Vax, Alpha)
SUN - SPARC family of systems
The Hp Pa-risc family of systems
