In theory you could run it on emulated hardware, as there is a "hobbyist
license" available. But it would be more practical to figure out how to get
an account on HP's OpenVMS Open Source Cluster.
(Cluster - hmmm, only the IA64 machine seems to be up these days)

I have an account, but I'm not sure what the current procedure is to get
one, as I think mine dates back to the enlightened time when HP provided an
entire "Test Drive" service, with most of the hardware and OS combinations
they offered available.
