vtAlpha, a quick summary

vtAlpha is a software product that creates the hardware interface of an Alpha computer system on a regular Intel or AMD processor based system.

It allows the owners of Alpha computer systems to simply copy their Alpha disk content to the new host computer and run their Alpha based software on a totally different hardware architecture.

No application software migration is required, saving enormous amounts of effort, time and money. You can simply integrate your Alpha systems in your company  IT infrastructure.

You can setup Fault or Disaster Tolerant vtAlpha installations to ensure to continuous availability of your virtual Alpha's.
