What is the Deathrow Cluster?

"The Deathrow Cluster" is a couple of computers acting as one large computer. The cluster currently consists of a DEC AlphaServer DS10L (64 bit) and an Integrity rx2600 Itanium (64 bit) running the OpenVMS operating system.

The idea of the Deathrow Cluster is to promote the OpenVMS operating system and give people a chance to play with it. People are welcome to test the security features of the cluster, port non-commercial code and learn the basic in-and-outs of the OpenVMS operating system. The cluster supports many programming languages, including: BASIC, C/C++, Fortran, Cobol, Ada (on Alpha), Bliss, Macro32, DCL scripting, Java, and Pascal.

The cluster is available for general public use, as long it's not for commercial purposes. The cluster uses the OpenVMS Hobbyist licensing, hence the reason we cannot allow commercial usage of the cluster. Commercial usage would violate our license agreement as OpenVMS hobbyists, and we cannot let that happen.

There is no charge for an account on the cluster. This cluster is, and always will be 100% free of charge. If you're not sure you need or want an account, then please play with our DEMO account first! The DEMO account give you near full access to the system (some network objects are restricted). To use the DEMO account, telnet or SSH to a cluster member and login with the username DEMO, password USER. To find out information on a node to connected to, look on the left side of this page under "Nodes Online:". These are the nodes currently online with there information. If you do find the cluster useful, consider donating!
