Charon is the brand name of a family of legacy system emulators from Stromasys. Charon software emulates legacy hardware such as SPARC, VAX, Alpha, PDP, or PA-RISC. Each emulator creates a virtual legacy environment on a standard Windows- or Linux-based host system, with or without VMware ESXi hypervisor configurations. The graph below shows how a legacy system hardware is replaced with Stromasys Charon emulator.
The table below shows some of the Stromasys emulators and the legacy platforms they emulate:
