OpenVMS V9.2-1 on x86 is released!
VSI OpenVMS V9.2-1 for x86-64 is now available and replaces V9.2 for supporting your efforts to migrate your applications to x86.
VMS Software, Inc. has migrated OpenVMS and its layered products to the industry standard x86_64 architecture to help customers protect their investment in OpenVMS infrastructure, especially in virtualized environments and in the cloud. This commercial release of OpenVMS V9.2-1 is available for porting development and production use on x86-64. VMS Software will keep working on future releases that will provide more functionality and feature more layered and open source products.
For hypervisors on which OpenVMS has been tested by VSI, please scroll down to the bottom of the page. To determine if the CPU in your system provides the features required to run OpenVMS V9.2 or later, run this Python script. Information on the virtual machine hosts tested by VSI is provided below and in the release notes. Depending on your source language and the availability of native compilers, you can compile your code using OpenVMS I64-hosted cross-compilers or natively on OpenVMS x86.
See lists of open source and layered products that work with OpenVMS here (filter by architecture to see those available on x86).
VSI Service Platform is used to distribute OpenVMS for x86. Watch the below video that explains how to use the VSI Service Platform to download software packages and report bugs (it was made for V9.1, but the same instructions apply for later versions).
