What is the
difference between VMS and OpenVMS?
VMS and OpenVMS are two names for
the same operating system. Originally, the operating system was
called VAX-11/VMS; it changed to VAX/VMS
at around VAX/VMS V2.0. When the VMS operating system was ported
to the Alpha platform, it was renamed OpenVMS, for both VAX and Alpha (and for the
Itanium Processor Family), in part to signify the high degree of
support for industry standards such as POSIX, which provides many
features of UNIX systems.
People in the field just call it "VMS". Digital Equipment
Corporation (DEC) developed VMS. DEC was bought by Compaq,
which in turn was bought by Hewlett-Packard. So, HP now owns VMS.
See the 20th,
25th, and 30th
anniversary celebrations of VMS at the HP web site.
