VMS Announces the Release of OpenVMS OS
VMS Software, Inc. today announced the availability of the new production release of VSI OpenVMS Alpha, version 8.4-2L1 designed for the Alpha hardware platform. The new release for Alphas running on x86-based emulators is based on the latest version of VSI OpenVMS Integrity V8.4-2L1, released in September 2016. VSI OpenVMS Alpha features a greatly simplified licensing model. Rather than sell licenses and support separately, VSI OpenVMS Alpha is offered as a bundle, comprised of both the license and support. The bundle will be sold in annual increments, which determines the term of support, not the term of the license. Unlike a subscription, the Alpha bundle includes a perpetual license, along with rights to new versions during the term of the bundle. Read the full press release here.
