OpenVMS benefits

HP OpenVMS features high-availability, scalability, security, industry-leading cluster technology, and enhanced flexibility. Some of these key benefits are discussed below:

  • HP OpenVMS version 8.3 is a new release for HP Integrity servers and AlphaServer systems. This OpenVMS version enhances the key properties of security, scalability, availability, performance, and interoperability with UNIX plus support for the latest dual-core servers and Integrity Superdome. The ability to deploy various generations of AlphaServer systems technology while incorporating Integrity servers offers bottom-line investment protection.
  • With OpenVMS, the combination of HP AlphaServer systems and Integrity servers will enhance your computing environments by capitalizing on the economy of an industry-standard architecture while adding value through HP innovation.
  • Legendary OpenVMS clustering supports both AlphaServer systems and Integrity servers as well as mixed architecture clusters. Application investments are also protected because the vast majority of AlphaServer system-based OpenVMS applications need only be recompiled, relinked, and tested in order to run on Integrity servers.
  • The new release of OpenVMS is based on a single-source code stream. Therefore, non-hardware-dependent enhancements will become available on both Integrity servers and AlphaServer systems with each release.
Most OpenVMS customers take a broad view of HP’s plans into account when planning for their OpenVMS installations, including
  • HP's recommendations for sustaining OpenVMS installations at optimal ROI, with appropriate service levels to meet your long-term business needs
  • HP and third party (ISV) product availability and support roadmaps covering
    • Integrity servers
    • AlphaServer systems
    • The OpenVMS operating environment
    • Related storage systems
    • OpenVMS applications or alternatives
    • HP's recommendation to transition to Integrity server-based solutions running OpenVMS
  • The contributions HP makes through the Alpha RetainTrust program, to reduce transition costs.
