HP OpenVMS is a general-purpose, multi-user operating system that runs in both production and development environments.
Beginning with OpenVMS version 8.2, HP OpenVMS supports Integrity servers. OpenVMS Alpha supports HP AlphaServer series
computers, and OpenVMS VAX supports VAX, MicroVAX, VAXstation, and VAXserver series computers. OpenVMS software supports
industry standards, facilitating application portability and interoperability, and it provides symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) support for multiprocessing systems.
The HP OpenVMS operating system can be tuned to perform well in a wide variety of environments. This includes combinations
of compute-intensive, I/O-intensive, client/server, real-time, and other environments. Actual system performance depends on
the type of computer, available physical memory, and the number and type of active disk and tape drives.
The HP OpenVMS operating system has well-integrated networking, distributed computing, client/server, multiprocessing,
and windowing capabilities. It contains extensive features that promote ease-of-use, improve the productivity of programmers,
and facilitate system management.
