Hardware Virtualization, OpenVMS Migration
Our Mission: Preserving what it best about the past while making way for the future.
At Migration Specialties we recognize the value represented by legacy software applications. These critical applications, be they running a tooling station or an entire enterprise, are still around because they continue to effectively do a job. We provide solutions that retain the value of such applications while upgrading the underlying hardware that supports them.
Virtualizing Legacy Hardware
Many businesses depend on software applications that have been in use for years and even decades. These applications in turn rely on aging hardware ever more prone to failure. Migration Specialties provides solutions that replace legacy hardware without changing legacy software. Commonly referred to as hardware emulators, these solutions virtualize old hardware, allowing the applications it supported to be re-hosted on smaller, faster, more reliable, more energy efficient platforms. Our Emulator page will tell you more about our virtual VAX, Alpha,
OpenVMS has been around for over 30 years and is still going strong. It and its associated VAX, Alpha, and Integrity processors have been our core business since our inception in 1992. If you are ready to move from a VAX or Alpha system to HP's Integrity platform, Migration Specialties has the tools and skills to help. We maintain running examples of all three platforms in-house along with a close relationship with HP's OpenVMS engineers and the OpenVMS community. Our Porting page provides details on our OpenVMS porting services.
Refreshing VAX & Alpha Hardware
Migrating software applications requires a comprehensive understanding of legacy programming languages like RPG, COBOL, and DIBOL. Migration Specialties offers a suite of products and services addressing legacy application support.
