Compaq AlphaServer DS10, with the following:

• 466 MHz 21264/EV6 processor;
• 2 Gbytes RAM (proprietary, it was very expensive, I can alternatively install e.g. 256 Mbytes for lesser);
• Compaq/DEC DE500(?) dual-port FE (100BASE-TX) NIC on-board;
• HP/Compaq/DEC DEGXA GbE NIC (or mod. DEGX2 dual-port GbE) additionally available;
• Compaq/DEC PowerStorm 3D10T (ELSA GLoria Synergy, PBXGK-BB, PCI); or...
• ATi Radeon 7500 or ATi Radeon 7500 All-In-Wonder (without DEC/Compaq/HP part number, both PCI), works excellently with VMS and very likely with Tru64 UNIX as well;
• HP/Compaq/DEC KZPDC (HP/Compaq Smart Array 5300 with 128 Mbytes or 256 Mbytes plus battery) SCSI RAID HBA;
• Compaq Premier Sound (Ensoniq AudioPCI, VMS-compatible through MMOV) PCI option;
• NEC USB PCI option;
• ... Along with other other PCI (3.3 V and 5 V) options and the latest SRM for it loaded, V7.3-1 (2007).

Here are some pictures: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

The system works great with VMS V8.4. Since it's an AlphaServer, it also comes with RMC (Remote Management Console) built-in. Despite this being a server, in several ways this system should be similar to the XP900 (that being the DS10's ‘strictly desktop’ counterpart) and equally usable as a workstation.

The system may have a faulty IDE/ATA CD-ROM drive and hasn't been powered on in a while, so it's sold without guarantees. Also, the “AlphaServer DS10” nameplate/badge is missing. The system is clean, all plastics are there and in good shape. If you want a ‘test drive’ via SSH, let me know and I'll arrange it for you.

One has been sold, with only one left and namely the one without the nameplate and the potentially ‘flawed’ CD-ROM drive. (Note: I don't have any 256 Mbyte kits left, so I only have the pricey 1 Gbyte kits.)

Both have been sold. I do still have various (1 Gbyte) memory kits available. Please contact me for availability.

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

August 07 2017
Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
