HP OpenVMS continues to build on its core values of high availability, security, disaster tolerance, scalability, reliability, ease of management, adaptability and flexibility. Current OpenVMS customers can continue to evolve their environments with the latest in HP Integrity hardware technology. New OpenVMS customers can take advantage of it in the full range of flexible, adaptable, multiple-operating systems environments provided by HP Integrity servers.

Delivering on our commitment to the adaptive enterprise, HP is pleased to announce Integrity Essentials Global Work Load Manager (gWLM) for OpenVMS on HP Integrity servers and Reliable Transaction Router (RTR) version 5.0 middleware. gWLM for OpenVMS offers you greater flexibility and control with efficient resource utilization and SLA compliance capabilities.
