What is OpenVMS, and How Can it Be Used?

Savant OpenVMS Migration & Support

OpenVMS is an operating system, software, networking and infrastructure product that specialises in helping organisations build safe and secure infrastructures that can be used in a range of different locations and hold mission-critical data safely and securely. One of the key advantages of OpenVMS systems is the way that data can be accessed and shared via multiple ports in different locations, meaning that even if one unit fails, the system as a whole remains unaffected. The OpenVMS platform allows for data to be held in multiple locations, without creating security risks, making it a popular choice for large organisations working with sensitive data, such as the healthcare, finance and legal sectors, to name just a few.

Clustering is what makes OpenVMS so successful; the technology was developed by DEC (Digital Equipment Corp) in the early 1980’s, and it is this feature that gives OpenVMS an edge over other similar operating systems. In computing terms, clustering two or more servers together in order to provide failover (in case of a server failure) is of absolute paramount importance. By having two or more servers in a “cluster”, OpenVMS is highly disaster-tolerant and can handle every possible failure without any appreciable or significant downtime, as any and all applications can continue to run on the remaining servers, without any disruption to the end-user.

OpenVMS is currently provided and developed by a company called VMS Software Inc (VSI), with who we have a very close working relationship at Savant. OpenVMS was originally developed in the early 80’s by DEC (Digital Equipment Corp.), which was then taken over by Compaq and then by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). This is a system that is heavily used by the finance industry and security sectors, along with healthcare and some private enterprises to provide a range of infrastructure and network services.
