Your VAX and Alpha systems have served you well for years, if not decades. They have
returned your investment in them many times over.
But if you have responsibility for your company's operations or its bottom line then
you understand the stress that goes with legacy hardware ownership. Nothing lasts forever.
Virtualization technology works. In the last decade there has been a proliferation of
virtual solutions for hardware, operating systems, storage, even video games.
Only a few of these offerings replace legacy hardware. Many virtualize brand new technologies
simply because virtualization saves money and space.
For VAX and Alpha system owners, the topic is more urgent.
It's not just a conservation issue.
It's a preservation issue. You need to find a way to keep your
OpenVMS based applications running
to maintain your business. This is where we can help you!
Your OpenVMS operating system, DEC layered software,
third-party packages and homegrown
user applications execute unmodified on vtVAX and vtAlpha.
No code conversion is required.
Users do not need to be retrained.

The Technical Notes Running vtServer in a Virtual Machine Environment
and Running vtVAX for Windows in a Virtual Machine Environment

emulators on CPUs with hyper-threading enabled. We also added guidance on updating
OpenVMS SYSGEN parameters on multiprocessor systems when the emulation host system
