We want to bring the benefits of newer versions of OpenVMS to Alpha hardware users,” said Duane P. Harris, CEO of VMS Software.
BOLTON, MA (PRWEB) April 11, 2016
VMS Software, Inc. (VSI) today announced the immediate availability of the VSI OpenVMS Alpha Evaluation Kit for the Alpha hardware platform.
“Now that we have released two new versions of VSI OpenVMS on the HPE Integrity hardware platform, we want to bring similar upgrades to Alpha hardware users,” said Duane P. Harris, CEO of VMS Software. “This evaluation kit will solicit feedback from Alpha users, and help us plan for a future Alpha production release.”
The Alpha Evaluation Kit is meant to reach a wide user audience. Their participation and input will be one of the key factors in deciding if VSI pursues OpenVMS releases for the Alpha platform. If VSI does proceed with future development, the Alpha release will follow the traditional Field Tests and release cycles.
Users can download the kit immediately, until June 1, 2016, at the Alpha Evaluation Kit Information Page: http://alpha.vmssoftware.com
The website also includes: registration requirements, details on how to install the kit, hardware platform notes, and layered products guidelines. Because the kit is provided primarily to solicit feedback, there is no included support of any kind.
The Alpha Evaluation Kit is available to anyone and contains a free license that will expire on September 30, 2016.
Check the VSI website during the next few months for more Alpha Evaluation Kit news.
