I have an Alpha DS-20 retired Feb 2021 that was under service contract 
thru 3/2021.  The PDP 11s are probably actively supported by those who 
are supporting customers with active systems.  Article said use of 
software and probably hardware thru the rest of the decade.

DS-20 was replaced by High Availability configuration Dell servers, 
Alpha on Intel emulation.  No change to OS or software in the 
migration.  Same goes for PDP 11, and possibly this was retired in such 
a move with remaining warranty.  (didn't see where OP got the system.
