Digital AlphaServer 1200

The AlphaServer 1200 is the successor to the AlphaServer 1000A. It uses the same enclosure as the 1000A but the logic is based on the AlphaServer 4000 design. It supports dual EV5 CPUs at either 400MHz or 533MHz. Disk storage is housed in StorageWorks shelves with one internal.

My machine (pictured above at its former home) is powered by a 400MHz CPU currently runs OpenVMS v8.2 and Tru64 5.1B-4 on 256MB of RAM. It currently only uses 6 of its 14 hard disks (3 raid volumes - 1 per OS). Details on its configuration may be found here (Since the configuration data on this page was obtained I have upgraded the systems firmware to the latest available version). The Machine is currently configured with the following extra hardware:
