New version of OpenVMS (on Alpha)

Greetings everyone! My name is Sue Skonetski and I work for VMS Software Inc. (VSI). I did work for DEC, Compaq and HP in the VMS Engineering group. And I must say I have the best job in the world, And that is because I get to work with VMS people all over the world.

The reason for this post is several fold. The first and foremost is to let you know that VMS is in safe hands. We have hired many of the engineers that worked on VMS a few from the very beginning of VMS (v.05) some that worked on the port from VAX to Alpha and the majority that worked on the Alpha to Integrity port. VSI came into business on July 2014, since then we have release 5 versions of VMS, three on Integrity servers and 2 on Alpha. We are actively working on a port to X86. All versions of the VMS Operating System have retained the qualities VMS is known for (Security, Availability, Reliability) which includes VMS clustering, volume shadowing and more. For additional information or calls wth any member of the executive team, you are welcome to send me email at susan.skonetski @vmssofware.com please remove the spaces between my name and the email. And of course the website www.vmmssoftware.com has great information.

If I had to compare VMS Software to DEC, Compaq or HP I would pick DEC (Ken Olsen's DEC). Very much a customer oriented company with a "Do the right thing" mentally.

Re: The whole 9 yards

We have a R&D team who are looking at all kinds of options after x86. Who knows what will happen. I do know your ideas are welcome.

What is a sad day for a VMS system mgr?

I received an email from a customer who had taken a day off from work (names changed to protect the guilty) . As you know most VMS folks try to keep their VMS systems up for as long as possible. His environment had been up for 18 year 5 months and some odd days. However on vacation day a non VMS person whom we shall call "Mr. I can use a mouse and text on a phone hence I am a computer genius" bought the environment down. Our friend comes back to day one. I can only imagine the words that were spoken. While this is not the longest uptime, it is certainly an honorable mention.
