vtAlpha pre-installed and preconfigured on a USB memory stick. Combined with the product license on the same stick this gives you a mobile and instantly usable virtual Alpha, maintaining the Bare Metal approach.
You can plug this mobile device into any system you want to use and run your virtual Alpha’s directly on it, just like that.
It is actually not something totally new.
We have been offering this solution to our resellers from the early beginning of vtAlpha, in order to allow them to demonstrate Alpha virtualization on their personal laptops without removing the existing disk content.
It allows to use the laptop for presentations and reboot it from the USB stick for a product demonstration.
Later, when we added full Virtual Machine support, this function faded a bit into the background. But recently we detected renewed interest for this special implementation in the real Alpha world.
So we dusted off the initial product, added extra functionality and now we have it available for anybody who wants a mobile Alpha solution. You may run one or more virtual Alpha’s from the same USB stick, depending on your license content.
Plug it into a system and run vtAlpha from the USB device. Use all disks in the host as physical disks. Create a diskless Alpha, that takes its storage from the host or the company SAN. Carry your personal Alpha with you all the time (shown key hanger not included since we don’t have anymore real Alpha chips).
Please contact your nearest vtAlpha reseller when you want to know more about this product (they can show it instantly, since they already carry the key with them), or ask us to contact you.
