OpenVMS V9.2-2 for x86 now available!
VSI OpenVMS V9.2-2 for x86-64 is now available as part of our ongoing development of the port to the industry-standard CPU architecture.
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 V9.2-2 is available for porting development and production use on x86-64. Its main focus is on addressing issues found since V9.2-1. It also includes updates for several layered and open-source products, such as SSL, OpenSSH, and TCP/IP, provided as part of the default installation.
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.
