Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

As predicted here earlier this year, Compaq will show Win64 running on its Alpha platform at its annual jamboree Innovate in Houston this coming week. That is likely to cause more heart-fluttering at Intel's HQ in Santa Clara, as so far Win64 has only managed to boot on Merced simulators. Compaq wants to push its fast Alpha 64-bit chip as the platform of choice at the high-end enterprise level. However, in so doing, it is playing a high-risk game. Our sources deep within Compaq say that it has still not sorted out its sales and divisional strategy on servers, as revealed here last week. ® Some of our world-beating Alpha coverage Intel's Otellini on Alpha Compaq thumps Win64 tub Microsoft, Intel fall out over Merced Compaq still wavering over Alpha, Merced Compaq re-visiting Merced strategy Compaq details Wildfire attack on Sun Will 64-bit Win2K for Merced ship later rather than sooner Deep schisms mar Compaq 64-bit plans High end Alpha spreads like Wildfire Alpha chip to clock 1.2GHz in copper Win64 order of boot expected RSN Compaq's Wildfire shows scale of ambition Compaq breaks for border with Alpha chip Future of Alpha chip revealed AMD-Compaq plans grow clearer Secret pact between Compaq, MS revealed Compaq promotes Alpha as high end solution Intel anxious about Compaq Alpha threat More Alpha details seep from Compaq sieve Secret Alpha system pix fall to earth Alpha pricing could cut Intel's throat Compaq boots 64-bit NT on Alpha server
