Tru64 UNIX and Virtual Systems
Development of Tru64 UNIX has been dropped by Hewlett-Packard (HP). This operating system never made it to HP's Integrity server product, and all customers are supposed to move to HP-UX. However, many features of Tru64, such as shared-everything clustering, aren't present in HP-UX.
These facts mean that your investment in software and licenses needs to be protected! All hardware will fail, it's just a question of when. By creating a virtual system, you can keep moving forward to the latest hardware and not have to change a thing. And that new hardware means that your virtual system will keep getting faster as the newest hardware keeps getting faster.
The CHARON-AXP product runs Tru64 UNIX, Ultrix, and OSF/1, creating the virtual system you need.
This product passes the hardware test suite to verify that it's an Alpha. Some other things you need:
- DEC/Compaq/HP software licenses can be transferred to the emulated system -- your license investment is protected.
- HP Tru64 UNIX software support is available when running on HP hardware.
The CHARON product successfully runs all Tru64 UNIX products, including third-party products.
