VMS is a seriously powerful high quality operating system that pionneered clustering and whose capabilities are still ahead of others when it comes to active/active systems and disaster tolerance with nodes in different sites.

VMS began life in 1979 on the VAX hardware platform, followed by a port to the 64 bit Alpha architecture in the early 1990s, then HP's proprietary IA64 (Itanium).

has taken over development, marketing and sales of VMS and has committed to porting VMS to industry standard x86 servers. This promises to inject new life into an operating system that was forgotten due to lack of marketing.

Downloadable software:

The site also hosts DFU, a "must have" utility to manage disks, files, recover deleted file etc.
