VMS and Virtual Systems


Whether you call it OpenVMS, VAX/VMS, or just "VMS", this operating system is still being developed by Hewlett-Packard (HP).  The latest version is V8.4.  HP promised that there would be an equivalent release for Alpha some time after a release for the Integrity server. VAX development stopped at V7.3.

These facts mean that your investment in software and licenses needs to be protected!  All hardware will fail, it's just a question of when.  By creating a virtual system, you can keep moving forward to the latest hardware and not have to change a thing.  And that new hardware means that your virtual system will keep getting faster as the newest hardware keeps getting faster.

The CHARON-VAX and CHARON-AXP products run VMS, creating the virtual system you need.

Both of these products pass the hardware test suites to verify that they're a real VAX or Alpha.  Some other things you need:
The CHARON products successfully run the VMS version of these products:

To simplify migration, Quayle Consulting has a set of DCL scripts to run BACKUP on each disk and push the savesets across the network using TCP/IP or DECnet.  The documentation of the full set of scripts are at stanq.com/Migration-Tools
