    OpenVMS Cluster Achieves 10 Year Uptime!
    Posted by Ian Miller on Sunday January 08 2006 @ 10:34AM EST
    According to George Cook of WVNET this cluster has been up for over 10 years.

    WVNET is the West Virginia Network, a dynamic service organization providing telecommunications and computing services within West Virginia. WVNET was created in 1975 to provide central computing facilities and wide-area network communications linking its "central site" computing resources in Morgantown with the campus computing systems at most of the colleges and universities throughout the state.

    The cluster consists of
    - Alpha 4100 (with four 533Mhz CPUs) running VMS 7.3-2
    - VAX 6000-630 running VMS 7.3
    - four DEC 3000 workstations running VMS 7.3-2

    The cluster provides a variety of services:
    - Runs the Banner student information system (on Oracle) for one of the member institutions of higher education.
    - Runs multiple Oracle/Banner test databases to support Banner running on VMS at some of other member institutions.
    - Is the Usenet news server (running DNEWS).
    - Is one of the Domain Name (DNS) servers for several hundred domains.
    - Provides DHCP, Bootp, Kerberos and print services
    - Hosts the VMS Mosaic web site and ftp server.
