Content starts here Many customers with older AlphaServers are trying to determine the best course of action for upgrading their IT infrastructure to meet their business requirements.

  • Extend the life cycle of your AlphaServer investment -- if you are satisfied with the functionality available on Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS
  • Transition to Integrity server -- if you need unmatched price/performance, superior partitioning and virtualization capabilities, security, and system management capabilities

HP AlphaServer

HP AlphaServer systems with OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX® continue to offer rock-solid reliability, excellent price/performance, application availability and performance, and simplified management and flexibility, making them an excellent choice for an upgrade or IT consolidation project.

» AlphaServer Product Availability and Support Roadmaps

For OpenVMS customers, the path forward is simple. HP ported OpenVMS, its layered applications, and development tools to HP Integrity servers. OpenVMS v8.2, based on a common source code stream for AlphaServer and Integrity Server, began shipping in January 2005. ISVs strongly endorsed this port, and key applications and databases such as Oracle Rdb are now available. Because customers can smoothly integrate Integrity servers into an existing OpenVMS cluster, the main transition trigger is application software availability.

For Tru64 UNIX customers, the path to Integrity server typically requires a transition to HP-UX 11i. HP has developed excellent services and tools to help you smoothly transition and gain the business benefits of HP Integrity server sooner.
