OpenVMS Features


OpenVMS systems can handle up to 3,000 interactive users simultaneously. Oracle database performance has been clocked at almost 2 million transactions per minute.


OpenVMS uptime is not measured in days, weeks, or months, but in years!


  • OpenVMS is one of the most secure operating systems available to the general public. Don't believe us? Then check the Secunia web site and compare known OpenVMS vulnerabilities to other, but far less capable operating systems.
  • OpenVMS has never had a virus.
  • OpenVMS has not suffered from a worm since 1988.
  • OpenVMS has only seen about 55 CERT advisories listed in the past 18 years.


OpenVMS is the only operating system that offers true, shared everything clustering. A cluster can be comprised of up to 96 nodes containing over 3,000 processors. All cluster members can simultaneously access the same files on shared disks. Nodes can be physically separated by 500 hundred miles (800 kilometers), offering the last word in disaster tolerance. Nodes can be added and removed from the cluster without impacting overall availability or performance.


OpenVMS has been around for over 30 years, with no end in sight. The operating system continues to evolve to meet current technology demands while providing a rock solid foundation for enterprise applications. Many programs and procedures developed on OpenVMS in past decades are still viable today, providing operational continuity and ROI unheard of in any other operating system.
