Tractebel in Brussels, Belgium developed Tru64 and OpenVMS applications for which there is demand outside the current installed base. Using refurbished Alpha hardware for these new installations was not an available option.
Hence they looked at Alpha virtualization that enables them to run the existing Tru64 and OpenVMS software on top of regular x86-type host systems. Multiple Alpha virtualization products were investigated and vtAlpha is their preferred choice.
HP provided the brand new OpenVMS / Tru64 licenses for this installation and everything works like a charm
It shows that with the help of vtAlpha it is still possible to expand the Tru64/OpenVMS customer base, using regular x86 equipment as the host platform.
You too can move your existing Alpha installation to x86-based equipment and prolong its life-time with the help of vtAlpha.
