    Mission-critical Roadmap Update for HP OpenVMS Customers

    For over 35 years, the HP OpenVMS operating environment has served as a mission-critical platform upon which you have built your IT infrastructure. We deeply appreciate our long partnership and also the loyalty you have shown HP during this time. We are committed to providing you updates and support for the V8.4 OpenVMS operating environment through at least December 31, 2020.

    Deploying OpenVMS on Integrity i2 servers provides significant performance and cost savings over prior Alpha and Integrity versions. Please read how two customers have improved their OpenVMS environments with Integrity i2 ("Tukwila") servers:

    AccuWeather, U.S. (.pdf)

    "AccuWeather improved runtime performance by 20 percent by upgrading its OpenVMS environment with HP Converged Infrastructure including HP Integrity blades".

    Sberbank, Russia (.pdf)

    "The HP Integrity server blades reduce our space needs by 20% and our power requirements by 15% annually."

    To maintain and grow your mission-critical OpenVMS environment, we have extended sales of the Integrity i2 servers for OpenVMS through at least December 31, 2015 and sales of Integrity i2 server upgrades for OpenVMS through at least December 31, 2016. We will also extend Integrity i2 server hardware support through at least December 31, 2020.

    Additionally we will continue legacy support for OpenVMS:
    - OpenVMS V7.3-2 on Alpha: prior version support through December 31, 2015.
    - OpenVMS V8.3 on Alpha: standard support through December 31, 2015.
    - OpenVMS V8.4 on Alpha: standard support through at least December 31, 2016.
    - OpenVMS V8.3/V8.3-1H1 on Integrity: standard support through December 31, 2015.

    With the changes to extend sales and support of the HP Integrity i2 servers with OpenVMS, we will not offer OpenVMS on HP Integrity i4 ("Poulson") servers. Please review the updated OpenVMS roadmap:


    HP is committed to your business and success. We will continue to provide a high level of support to you through the lifetime of your OpenVMS environment. We have a full portfolio of servers, software, and solutions, including support for transitions to NonStop, HP-UX, Linux, and Windows environments. Your local HP representative can help you make the right choices for your OpenVMS environment and address any questions you may have.

    Thank you for your business. We look forward to continuing our partnership and to being your partner of choice for mission-critical computing requirements.

    Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Servers Business
